Turner is not even MVP on his own team Bowie has won like 3 games with clutch plays by himself. Bowie is the MVP for Willo and maybe the league. However I am on bail for bottling a women is a favorite as well if it wasn't for the league turning a blind eye to his criminal record. Brian V leading the league in assists and rebounds has to put him in the convo as Slammers started terribly with out him which makes him most valuable for them as well of course none of this matters because of the stupid points system used to create an "MVP"

Turner kept Willo in the lead most of the game while Bowie chucked up bricks.

Bowie hit a fluke half court shot at the buzzer too.If the Ref called Benjamin for the foul he committed above the 3 point line he wouldn't have had those FT's at the end either. He was able to rest up for 5-6 minutes as there was a Time Clock issue.

Benjamin was damn impressive yesterday too. He made a ton of tough shots. Interestingly he didn't shoot a single FT, not through lack of aggressiveness either.

Hussey gave Armour and Black fits, dominated them. Ralph and Hancock stunk it up, that really hurt Gero.

Speaking of Hancock he has been underwhelming as a NBL DP coming into the league. Either that is a testament to how good the SBL really is perhaps he was a little bit over rated.

Yet he is still getting interest from NBL clubs. Maybe there's another side of him the stats don't show?

But that Willo - Buccs game was some pretty good basketball from both teams. Willo just prevailed. This league stands with some of the best around Australia.

I think this is one of the weaker years of SBL.

Take away your Buccs/Tigers and Redbacks (With SR) there is a big gap between the rest.

Roberts doesn't seem to have his usual explosiveness, I'd not be surprised if he's carrying an injury.

Without Redhage Perth have a tougher time of scoring. Nelson can get a good shot for himself or others, but the rest of the Team struggle to.

Today they were completely out-rebounded, Stirling took them to town there. It also didn't help that they lost focus and concentrated on the refs instead of their own performance.

I don't know if that is meant to be an insult to the Redbacks by the anons above.. Take the leagues best scorer out of most of the SBL teams and they will probably not be as good.

Especially a team like the Redbacks that don't have a lot of depth at the 4/5 position.

I do not think it is meant to be an insult but it does represent their complete lack of talent pool and coaching considering one players abscence should not mean a team cannot win a game. You are only as good as your last player on the bench. Championship teams survive and win games even when the leading scorer is out.

It hasn't just been Redhage that has been missing for the redbacks though. Also got to remember Vigor, Mawein, Wagner, Bowen, and Chappel all have missed and all have started a number of games previously. That's a considerable amount of depth lost.

To go down in close games to top 8 teams should actually prove how deep they are, to do so without the (likely) league MVP and 5 other players who have all started earlier in season. Not many other teams would be able to fill that hole.

Sorry but Mawein is a rookie and his contributions tailed off as Teams got to see him.

Jack Wagner was barely getting off the bench the last Month or so, that's a stretch for him too.

Chappell? C'mon now, see Wagner and cut/paste. He was a Starter in name only, definitely not production.

Bowen played well but was always leaving. His minutes were also cut dramatically when Vigor/Roberts returned.

There's no way they all could've played big minutes and seen the ball.

Redhage is the missing link, he covers up a lot of mistakes and deficiencies. Without him they don't go far.

His minutes being cut for Vigor and Roberts isn't much of an argument against how helpful it would be to have him with Vigor and Redhage away.

Redhage, Vigor, Roberts, Nelson, Bowen, Viskovich, Stone, and Wagner have all missed significant chunks of the season. There was also Loughton coming in for a small stint. Smith missed the first couple of weeks. That's nine guys with predictable absences, not including Loughton...they're lucky they've been relatively injury-free, but the chopping and changing really can't be helping anyone.

its a pointless argument , nic knows that this was going to happen and is trying to manage it best he can at the minute.
teams that flirt with this approach are always open to copping some flack and losing ladder positions, which can be costly no doubt.
at the end of the day you have to beat everyone to take the title despite your finishing postion.
is geraldtons home court as feared as it once was?
have suffered a few losses already and most notably against the magic last week. I would be more worried about playing the s/w slammers in bunbury at the minute or wolves at Joondalup.
maybe the SBL should look at changing the finals format to stop sides just falling into the finals due to players coming and going as they wish. maybe a top 6 for men/women.
the womens comp is the same at the moment with willo-

You have to play 9 games to qualify for playoffs, so Harrelson won't play in the finals unless the Slammers have done some dodgy deal and put him on the SBL Injury List a month or so ago.

Is this a response to me? Because my point was that having him available to take those minutes would help cover for the absence of Redhage and Vigor, thus his also being away hurts further.

Yes it is KR, Bowen was not going to be available for the time Vigor and Redhage are away. The Redbacks knew this. Thus that line of thought is irrelevant.

On the Harrelson front, it would be VERY dodgy if he was on the Injury Reserve while not even being in Australia.

Im sorry sad?! Sad that he got caught drunk driving and nearly killed people, now has to serve jail time because of it. No, in no way is that sad. What's sad is we don't see the seriousness in his reckless actions. Drink Driving is a personal choice, often a bad one. Now he had eight months to think about that choice and I'm sure those close to him will now not do the same either.

Looking like a spectacular finish to the SBL season with 3 rounds left.

Willetton and Geraldton fighting for 1 and 2.
Joondalup would appear firm at 3.
Southwest, Stirling, Cockburn, Perth slugging it out for 4, 5, 6, 7.
While Rockingham are still a dark horse if they can claim their last 3 games to pip Perry Lakes for the final seed.

I think it should be noted this happened back in 2015 when he was living in Perth and not involved with the Giants.
Since his return to Kalgoorlie, they have since worked hard with him getting him back on the right path and he's basically turned his life around from what he was becoming.
This judgement is all part of the process and it's unfortunate others were hurt for him to finally see the light.

Current standings:
19-4 Tigers
18-6 Wolves
17-6 Buccs
14-9 Senators
14-10 Redbacks
13-10 Slammers
13-10 Cougars
12-11 Hawks
-------------
10-14 Flames
10-14 Lightning
8-16 Eagles
6-17 Giants
6-18 Eastern Suns
4-19 Magic

----------------------------------
The teams can be grouped into three categories.....

(1) The top 7 teams have made the playoffs:
Tigers
Wolves
Buccs
Senators
Redbacks
Slammers
Cougars

(2) Battling for 8th spot:
Hawks
Flames
Lightning

(3) See you next year:
Eagles
Giants
Eastern Suns
Magic

----------------------------------
Where can they all finish:

TIGERS - 1st to 3rd
Most likely: 1st (22-4)

WOLVES - 1st to 3rd
Most likely: 3rd (19-7)

BUCCS - 1st to 4th
Most likely: 2nd (19-7)

SENATORS - 3rd to 8th
Most likely: 5th (16-10)

REDBACKS - 4th to 8th
Most likely: 4th (16-10)

SLAMMERS - 4th to 8th
Most likely: 7th (14-12)

COUGARS - 4th to 8th
Most likely: 6th (15-11)

HAWKS - 4th to 9th
Most likely: 8th (14-12)

FLAMES - 8th to 10th
Most likely: 9th (12-14)

LIGHTNING - 8th to 10th
Most likely: 10th (10-16)

EAGLES - 11th to 12th
Most likely: 11th (8-18)

GIANTS - 11th to 14th
Most likely: 12th (7-19)

EASTERN SUNS - 12th to 14th
Most likely: 13th (6-20)

MAGIC - 12th to 14th
Most likely: 14th (4-22)

----------------------------------
The battle for the last playoff spot:
HAWKS:
Only have to win one more game to secure the last playoff spot. They have the Slammers (home), Lightning (away) and Buccs (away) to go, so you would think they are a good chance. But even if they lost all three, the Flames and/or Lightning would have to win all of their games to pass the Hawks.

FLAMES:
To make the playoffs the Flames need to win both of their remaining games (Suns at home, Giants away) and hope that the Hawks lose all of their remaining three games. Definitely a possibility but a tough ask.

LIGHTNING:
To make the playoffs the Lightning need to (1) win both of their remaining games (Hawks & Tigers, both at home), (2) hope that the Hawks lose all of their remaining games, and (3) hope that the Flames lose at least one game. And to make things even harder, if they beat the Hawks, it has to be by 21 points or more.

It's a semi pro league that takes to long to get through. People have other things to do while the season is still going! Like going to college, preseason nbl, the next job etc etc

Nichols was attending one of the dozen camps run in Las Vegas during summer league. Don't confuse it with Summer League, it's just something agents do bringing players together to play games after more games trying to get "exposure". He'll be back soon enough.

Reduce the length = more back to backs.

Also means either double headers in Gero and Kal or triple headers for those teams.

The one this teams don't want, are back to backs.

Move the League to two conferences then.

North - Buccs / Wolves / Senators / Hawks / Eagles / Suns / Redbacks

South - Slammers / Magic / Flames / Cougars / Tigers / Lightning / Giants

19 Game Season - Play everyone in your Conference Home & Away; Play other conference once a season, alternating yearly H&A

Finals - Top 4 from each Conference
1st North vs 4th South (A)
1st South vs 4th North (B)
2nd North vs 3rd South (C)
2nd South vs 3rd North (D)

Semi Finals
Winner Series A vs Winner Series D
Winner Series B vs Winner Series C

Grand Final SERIES (Home - Away - Home)

Winner of All Star Game determines home court advantage for the Grand Finals Series

Because the clubs who make the Grand Finals deserve to reap the financial benefits from it, not the League. Better atmosphere - Better community engagement. When was the last time Bendat was full for BOTH GRAND FINALS in the same year - NEVER. Make it more of a spectacle, make it a true test of the best teams having the chance to win the state's grandest prize on their own court.

Only the Buccs stadium and its still only just over half the Bendat capacity. But the last few grand finals havent been complete sell outs anyway.

The main issue with a 3 game final etc is the regional teams and how that is managed.

If the Buccs or Giants got in it would still be simple to do. If they are the higher sees, games 1 & 2 played Saturday, Sunday in the first Week at their stadium. Means the lower seed then has to win to earn the right to get a game on their own court. If they're the lower seed then same set up but games one and two would be on the road for them. It would work.

As someone else has pointed out, the last few Grand Finals have not been sell outs any way.

In a somewhat separate note but still related to the subject at hand, what's the League team fee at these days? 20 - 25k? And aside from paying the referees and getting a bunch of spaldings at the start of each season, as well as contribute towards ABs salary at BWA - what do clubs ACTUALLY get for it? Leisurely can't be seen as value for money.

Playoffs picture at this point:

1 - Tigers : Guaranteed top spot as H2H they def. Wolves
2 - Buccs or Wolves: if the Buccs win today and next week, they're auto 2nd. if the Buccs drop a game, and the Wolves lose next week, they're still 2nd. Wolves can only finish second if Buccs lose both games and Wolves def Slammers.
3 - Buccs or Wolves : see above
4, 5, 6, 7 - Redbacks, Slammers, Cougars or Senators : Any of these teams could finish 4 through 7 if I calculate correct. A Win for Redbacks next week v Eagles would guarantee 4th. After that it gets really tricky should there be a 3 or 4 way tie. Cougars def Stirling twice, Stirling def SW twice, SW def Cockburn twice.... so of figure that. Cougars will make it easy by losing today.
8 - Hawks or Flames : Lightning are out. Should Hawks lose next week and Flames win, whatever the margin, Flames are through as 8th as they have the jump on hawks via H2H.

Lightnings season is over as they lose H2H to Hawks and have lost both times to the Flames.

Thats how I read it anyway :)

I guess someone didnt watch the Hawks games this weekend.

SW game was a joke. The Hawks were in the penalty for close to 50% of the game on Friday. The refs were atrocious. You cant win games when your team is sending the opposition to the line 29 times.

The Lakeside game wasnt great, but they did make a massive run to almost win. An interesting non call on the final play of the game could have a huge bearing on the playoffs. Adekponya probably should have been shooting Fts to win that game.

Hawks playing group has some issue and holes that need to be addressed in the offseason. They lack leadership on the court, They lack composure under pressure, They have a couple of players that arent mentally tough. They need to change it up. They certainly need some veteans to provide the on court leadership that isnt coming from within the group. They need to learn how to deal with adversity. They need to trust that the systems in place will get them the results they desire.

The Hawks coaches and board have known from very early in the season about the issues. They know that there will need to be sweeping changes and hard decisions made. They know that this isnt a quick fix. Everyone involved with the Hawks organisation is going to be patient and let the group evolve.

Its almost like a whole section of this forum thread dont actually watch games. A lot of comments on issues they cant understand from looking at a box score.

But given the way the game was called to that point in the last 5 mins you can understand Parsons being pissed.

Can't comment on the 3 being recorded as a 2 - didn't see it

Perry Lakes can protest the result which I assume they will, but it needs to be proven on both sides that the error was deliberate. If it is simple human error (and nobody wants to think that the Lakeside bench have cheated) IMO its unlikely the result will be overturned. I cant recall a result ever being changed in the week after because of a scoring error, feel free to correct me if I am wrong.
Likely result will be Lakeside's win will stand, it will be interesting to see what comes of Parsons' tribunal result and this weeks games.

If the Hawks can't go into a game that really matters and not have the right attitude/mind set etc, then they don't deserve to be in the finals. Have been the same over several seasons now - in fact since the day Dennis left. An interesting challenge for the coach who has had a whole season to assess what he's got and what's needed. The Einsteins here may like to gloat over Parsons "failure" or the teams "flop" but good sustainable programs are built over a few years and need ongoing resources. The one season wonder teams that win a championship often endure hard times for a while after it eg. Eagles. Willeton.

If Hawks don't make finals, it's a Fail.

Adekponya, 2x imports and a top 10 Australian in our league. + 2x COTY.

It was a no call, Adekponya creates the contact. and the defender goes straight up. YES, th is defender brings his arms down to about a 30 degree angle, but makes NO contact with the arms, and the ball is clearly blocked.

Damage of property, albeit his own, isn't a good look, and neither is a spectator getting hit by it. Accidental or not, the U20s head coach and previous COTY should be held accountable. I don't care if Perry Lakes does represent 70% of our leagues GDP.

Seems a bit confusing to me that decision. Its like the tribunal wants a $1 each way. Want to send a message that this is unacceptable (hence the 8 weeks) but we cant upset the people from Perry Lakes so we will suspend it.
A series of charges that leads to an 8 week suspension SHOULD NOT have the whole amount suspended. There should be at least 1/3 of it served with the balance suspended.
Pandering to the squeaky wheel it seems.

8 weeks suspended sentence isnt anything to sneeze at. Thats a big term to serve if he has another issue arise. Its not like he beat someone up. He got frustrated and used bad language towards a ref. He smashed a clipboard. 8 weeks suspended for that is a pretty big punishment. Im Not sure what everyone was expecting but a suspended sentence was always gong to be the outcome.

Bigger issue is how the Hawks got cheated out of a point that would have at least put hem into OT with a chance to win and make a playoff appearance. That single mistake may end up being the difference in their season.

About time the refs took some responsibility this season as well. Throughout the season I have seen coaches asking refs to explain calls and refs refuse to make eye contact or come across to see them even though it's a dead ball. I'm not condoning poor behaviour by coaches but a lot of tech fouls and incidents such as at Lakeside on the weekend would not occur if the refs reacted to defuse the situation instead of ignore or avoid the discussion. It's the difference between a well reffed game and a game that is ugly and high tension.

Clearly new to basketball or haven't put on a referee shirt...a dead ball isn't the time to explain a decision. All coaches are briefed on this pre-season. Games don't move forward when coaches like Ettridge and Parsons continuously question the referees. Literally every possession. The argument of referees ruining the game is old and to be honest quite redundant.

Let's let this one slide and concentrate on what a tantalising Finals series we have in front of us.

Assuming Tigers Wolves, Buccs and Redbacks all make it through (as we've identified them as the real contenders), Semis would be
Tigers v Redbacks and Wolves v Buccs.

GF scenarios:

Tigers v Wolves
Redbacks v Wolves
Tigers v Buccs
Redbacks v Buccs

I think the Tigers Buccs game is the only one that has the potential to blow out dramatically.

In terms of crowd sizes, you'd have to say Geraldton would bring the most people, Wolves second?

It works both ways between coaches and refs.
If refs don't want any interaction it's hypocritical to have the pre-game chat with the coach, asking if there's anything they want to looked at but then ignore the coach when they do ask for clarification. Maybe you're right that the coaches don't care or value the explanation, but I think acknowledgement that there's an issue is a fundamental part of conflict resolution, whether sport, personal or business.
Likewise a few coaches need to stop their constant needling at every call that goes against them and just choose the big ones that matter to query. Otherwise they become the boy who called wolf!

His back half of the year has been terrific and should be P.O.W. after his 41 point effort and win over the Buccs

It's because the SBL is terrible this year these players are numbers like this. Average imports, only one NBL player (and an average one at that), plus the best player in the league is a retired veteran.

If Bunbury win, it doesn't guarantee 4th. In order for that to happen, they need to win and Redbacks need to lose.

If games go as predicted with Cockburn defeating Kalamunda, Joondalup defeating Bunbury and Perth defeating East Perth the final 4-5-6 positions on the ladder will be Perth-Cockburn-Bunbury.

Final 8 should end up:

1 - Willo
2 - Joondalup
3 - Gero
4 - Perth
5 - Cockburn
6 - Bunbury
7 - Stirling
8 - Perry Lakes

Rosenbergi why are Geraldton losing this weekend based on your ladder? They win they finish second, get home court advantage throughout the finals. Also if the Buccs do win and Rockingham win over the Giants, which is more realistic than Geraldton losing, the flames would then finish 8th.

Quarter Finals
Willetton vs Rockingham
Geraldton vs Stirling
Joondalup vs South West

Anon1150 - I didn't say Geraldton lose, but as the last poster stated, Joondalup need to lose and Geraldton win for the Buccs to jump to 2nd.

That's certainly not out of the question, but hard to see Joondalup losing this one with the possibility of giving up home court advantage to Gero in the semis.

As for 8th spot, you're right, the Goldfields/Rocko game will be a good one and that spells trouble for Perry Lakes if they can't knock off Gero. You've sold me on this one and I'll update my 8th spot prediction to Rocko.

Hawks can't do anything about the points mishap. They filed a protest but in the by laws unless it's brought to the attention with 5 play phases they can't change it. I think they tried but couldn't do anything. It's dodgy. Doesn't help when the live stats were correct and later changed to match the score card. Hawks got a rough one there, but they just have to move on and try and win on Saturday.

Chalk this one up to the walking ego, Kyle Easther, for a phantom call with 3 seconds left prior to the inbound. Contact (or lack of) that would occur every second possession. Day light robbery for the hawks. Lucky for them other results went their way. The reffing this year has been some of the worst I can remember and I've watched basketball at this level for 20 years ...

There is no way Wellsteed will win MIP over Shervill.

Welsteed Averages- 5, 3 and 2, shooting 35%FG, 23%3PT, 49%FT
With Averages last year of- 3, 2 and 1


Shervill Averages- 16, 7 and 1.5, shooting 46%FG, 37%3PT, 79%FT
With Averages last year of- 5, 3 and 1

Ha ha Nener COY Cockburn would have finished a lot higher with a decent coach. Always starts with 3 guards, even if the other team has 3 big players To busy chatting refs to coach.

Black has to be a shoe in for COY. He has taken a talented side and gelled them well enough to be top of the ladder. Lacko has simply had Redhage injected and without him, they have struggled. Black has coached Tigers without some studs at times and they have still won games.

** Nener starts three guards comment** he's doing what he thinks makes match up issues for opposing teams, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't but the boys trust the system and they now have probably the best match up out of the finals run. They play Joondalup who are nowhere near as good as they have been in the past. Yes they are still in second but that are by no standard where they were a year ago.

Cougars will win that series and avoid Redbacks, Willo, Bunbury and Perry Lakes in second rounds.

Yep & Tigers lost to Lakeside!!

What do you think would happen if Tigers played Lakeside & Cougars played Suns in a final this week.
Would be 20+pt wins for Tigers and Cougars.

Last round for the contending teams is all about management and reducing minutes/injuries, of course players are there to win, but the intent is not what it would be with something on the line, why risk injuries when clearly there is a bigger picture.

Apparently the Pack didn't fare too well against the Cougar who prefers to Hunt Alone in 2016. When all odds are stacked against them, the Cougar strikes. The lonely cougar who chooses to do things in their own way, rather than just follow the pack.
The Cougar seemed to have the entire pack by the jugular and never let go in 2016. Ripping the throat and voice and apparently the ability to shake hands right out from the pack. They never saw it coming.

Hawks were exceptional. For a team that just scraped into the finals they looked like the No.1 seed. They were better prepared and they worked harder than the Tigers. Parson showed why he's a 2x COY.

Tigers had zero offence last night. Hawks scrabbled really well to get out to the 3 ball and force turnovers, where's as the Tigers were slow. I actually think Adekponya disrupts the Hawks flow when he's on the court. Feel free to disagree with me.

Hard to beat a team of good scrabblers. They're not bad at basketball either. lol. Agree about Adekponya somewhat. I think they will need his scoring as the series goes on.
