Lapel Regionalalready a sellout

The Lapel gym holds just over 3,000 people. Kitchel said the word is Wapahani fans were calling around to other schools to buy tickets before adding, “We’ll have our pep band there which is our great equalizer. With them there it’ll feel like a home game.

“It’ll be packed. It’ll be a great atmosphere.”

The game will also be broadcast locally on Mix 102 and Walton Webcasting.

Wapahani is led by Indiana All-Star candidate Grant Evans, a 6-foot-3 guard. The Wright State recruit averages 25.3 points and 6.9 rebounds per game. Jacob Foster, a 6-7 senior, adds 17.2 ppg and 8.3 rpg.
