The First Annual ScoringLive Free Throw Championship, presented by Taco Bell Hawaii, will take place on Friday, Feb. 17, 2017 as part of The Great Aloha Sports, Health and Fitness Expo at the Neal S. Blaisdell Exhibition Hall.

The event will feature 16 boys and girls teams in a bracketed, single-elimination tournament, with the winning two-person teams taking home the ScoringLive Trophy and $500 each for their schools. The teams qualify for the event by finishing in the top 16 of the season-long Taco Bell Free Throw Challenge, which measures the best free-throw shooting teams in the state.

"We are excited to partner with ScoringLive and Taco Bell Hawaii to incorporate high school basketball into the Great Aloha family of events that promote a healthy Hawaii," said Carole Kai, chair of Carole Kai Charities, Inc. in a press release.

The event begins at 5 p.m. The winning teams in the girls' and boys' competitions will face off.
