Ballarat to have a completely different side. No Scoines (injuries/retired), Barnes (football), McCallum (football), Reggie Larry (import), Coenraad is heading to taking the year off if Kevin White keeps getting minutes he could be considered an import so they probably won't opt for that option and Joyce might be staying put in Wollongong.

They have added Matt Hansen, Kris Blicavs and Chris Smith from Mt Gambier.

re: SEABL 2013.

Far to many player signings to be completed at this stage to speculate to much but what we know so far in the Men is

Bendigo have two outstanding imports in McFarlin and Ferguson

Dandenong return the 4 most important players to their list (Harms, Hobba, Montreal and Lewis) and bring in a young stud in Odigie who will more than fill the shoes of the loss of Jois

Herbert back for Geelong will be a big boost to their chances

Mt Gambier will be much better with Daly joining and if imports are good they should be back into finals action

Word is that Albury have a gun PG coming in to replace Ferguson and with the rest of the roster returning they should be in with a good chance to defend again. Depth is their only issue and an injury to any of their starting 5 would make it very hard for them to even make finals, it's that fine a line.

Lets not forget they only made finals last year by head to head! Knox were clear on top but Albury, Nunawading, Hobart, Ballarat and Kilsyth all tied on 16-12 record for 2nd-6th in battle for top 4!

Hobart have been hanging onto veteran players for a long time so having to go through some development pain was always on the cards. It's either that or splash the cash to buy in a team.

Also Tiri Musunda will not be returning to Hobart this year as he is moving to Melbourne as Anon stated. It will be interesting to see if youngster Josh Youl gets promoted from bench warmer to starting PG (which is a Hugh jump for anyone)!!!

Not sure how true this is but my mail is if he plays Big V he'll be wear red & black!

TB. I will clarify my first comment, and say that Hobart is a vital part of SEABL!

Youl is an emerging performer who doesn't get consistent minutes but is to reliant on his o/s game.

Ditto Krebs. Who's not afraid of the spotlight ala his potential game winner vs Dandenong - much to Polk's dismay!

Jack Osborn was mainly developed at Adams State and has now jumped to AFL!!

With $$ drying up for imports + retreads (Armstrong, Harris etc) they're under the pump.

Stewart should've been prepping their youngsters for sometime so they would be READY for this season.

SMA - Agree with you in respect to young guys getting playing time at Hobart...They are a key part of the SEABL comp however unles they put together some $$$ for a few Vic players to move South they could struggle....can't rely on 2 imports to get it done you need another 4 or 5 solid SEABL level performers other wise you'll anchor the ladder for a number of years to come.

Just ask Canberra about that. The league is too strong now for the small town teams to rely only local talent.
I heard that Canberra's new import PG can play. So that is a start, but gathering from last year’s performance they will need more than that.

Also had word that Massingale is in almost career best shape cos of his time at Adelaide. Scary thought for the rest of the league if he STARTS the season in career best...

re: SEABL 2013.

If Kilsyth have signed Masunda they won't get an import PG. O Hea and Masunda will share ball carrying duties with youngster Johnson backing up. You can expect an import 2/3 and Bridgewater as 2nd import. Starters will most likely be Masunda, O Hea, Import, Lang and MacMillan. Pretty solid Squad!

Looks like Knox will have a bit of a rebuilding year with a number of their core group pushing 30. With Carrol, Massingale, Mick, Lester forming the core they're still pretty strong. If they can get a few of their juniors up to scratch they'll have some sustained power looking foward. Having said that they should definely make finals.

Albury will be under the pump.. The loss of Ferguson really rules them out of contention I think. Even if they retain their core group, if they can't replace Ferguson with an import just as good or better they're gonna struggle.

Finals will be Dandenong, Kilsyth, Knox, Nuna, Mt Gambier, Frankston, Brisbane, Geelong.

Heard it here first.

Bridgewater is now an aussie so expect Kilsyth to get two imports (one is Kusyner) on top of him, O'Hea, Johnson, Lang, McMillan and maybe Masunda.
You would think a PG would be the right choice and O'Hea can focus on being the Shooting Guard he is.
That would be a championship type list!

Geelong Supercats should again feature as a top 2 or 3 team with their reputation for picking very capable imports, stay tuned for the word on the 2013 signings.

Mecanovic is a loss as he was finding some great form, sad to hear of Dave's injury, we all hope he comes good for 2014.

Rebula is young and will be missed for his team spirit and potential but his minutes would not suggest the team will be hurt too badly by his move to the Big V.

Essentially the Supercats should be very solid and hard to beat again in 2013!

Really Janev with Harris, Gaff and Payne?

That is a very big line up. Harris needs the ball within 3ft of rim. Gaff is good to about 8ft. Janev can shoot the 3 so that fits. New import Payne looks like a close to the basket guy as well although does have ability to attack rim from perimeter.

They have the size and will play a long 2-3 zone!

Ben Armstrong and Nick Haywood, Lee McGaffin and Dylan Warren surely round out the group.

If they can make tall ball work they could be pretty good.

Good pick up by Canberra.
Dowdell is tough in SEABL.
Last time he played for NW Tassie he averaged 20 & 10.
Just what the Gunners needed, with a healthy Gynes and import PG, Gunners suddenly might win a game or 2.

The Bandit's replacement import guard sounds decent:

I still think they'll struggle to stay near the top of the table & have little chance of a repeat title but they should remain competitive at least.

Young Tanner Krebs will be getting valuable minutes off the bench this year with the Chargers. He is only 16 and this could be a great opportunity for him. Last year got very little minutes but definitely made the most of what he got. Tassieballer have you seen him play lately what can we expect come next season?

Albury's chances depend entirely on their new import guard. Ferguson was a first rate player and carried the team for much of their success so Vann has some big shoes to fill. Unless he's close to being as good then I don't see Albury making the playoffs. They only just squeezed in last season thans to a better win/loss against the teams they finished equal with.

Ntumba is a great player but he needs to get the ball. The rest of the team is ordinary even with added depth and Chalmers hasn't convinced me he can coach either.

Ntumba, Opacic, Hollis & Harding frontcourt

Vann, Payne, Duck, Watson, DeKoyer backcourt

9 man rotation gives them great depth. They have strong rebounding, defence and perimeter shooting in the group.

Agreed that Vann needs to be good but looking at his numbers and video, he looks pretty decent.

Harsh not to give Chalmers your confidence, he took the second worst team in the league to the conference and league titles!!

Albury spent very little on players. They were extremely lucky with their import selection. it will be a good test without Jazz there to see how they go this season. I suspect a lot of people took the Bandits last season to be the usual easy beats and didnt do their homework at all. This season that won;y happen again.

re: SEABL 2013.

re:anon, about the restricted players.

I have seen people previously ask SEABL about their restriction rules and the answer from SEABL is to email them for a response, so not sure if it is officially published anywhere.

There was this somewhat cryptic article in the Bendigo Advertiser in late October regarding the problems the Braves & Lady Braves may have with restricted players in 2013 - hard to work out though if the restrictions apply to both the mens & womens leagues though:

here is the link to the full article, but here is parts about restricted status:

http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/417218/restricted-players-a-concern-for-braves-and-lady-braves/

*Each SEABL team can only have a maximum of three A, B or C restricted players - and no more than two A or B restricted players.

An A restricted player is any non-Australian required to hold a Foreign Players Licence, while B restricted is any player who averages more than 20 minutes per game in the previous WNBL season before the January deadline.

The Spirit's Madeleine Garrick could be a C restricted player if she averages between 14 and 20 minutes for the WNBL club.

Meanwhile, Harvey has secured his two import positions for next season, but remains unsure about MVP Tom Garlepp’s availability.

Garlepp is averaging just under 20 minutes for the Sydney Kings in the NBL and Harvey is scouting possible replacements in case last season’s star recruit becomes a B restricted player.*

So I'm guessing that means both the mens & womens use A & B restrictions - A = import, B = more than 20 mins in NBL or WNBL; does anyone know if 'C' restriction also applies for the men or is that purely for the women?

Out of curiosity - what happens if a player misses a season of NBL or WNBL due to injury but their previous season saw them ave above 20mins a game, are they counted as restricted or non-restricted? And what if a player sits out of the NBL or WNBL season leading into the SEABL season?

Great post, thanks. Some comments:

- Averaging 20 minutes per game seems a lot of court time before a player picks up restricted status.

- I am fairly sure that if you do not play in the previous season then you become an unrestricted player.

- I wonder how they rate Aussies playing overseas in terms of restricted status.

One the one hand VP, I agree the clip moves too fast between images, trying to get too many clips in for the time frame overall.

But, the idea is a good one, just the editing is a little bit second rate...

Once the slow motion clips come in, that part is pretty good, maybe should have given it to a pro??

Bring on the season though, looking forward to SEABL!

If they had of used more of their clips from "Plays of the Round" or "Dunks of the Year" - the better quality ones anyway it would have been an improvement.

Definitely needed to slow down the time for each clip so you could take it all in before the next one came up.

I've seen both the BIGV & VJBL do promotional videos which were better than this. Don't know if any other States ABA Leagues do anything like this.
