SEABL Rd 5 Action.

Some interesting results so far, Albury men get a win, Mount Gambier keep on rolling on, Dandenong drop to North West, Geelong show they're favourites over the hyped up Ballarat, Kilsyth drop to Frankston in a shock.

Grant Wallace would have to be in trouble at Kilysth. He has 3 import players in his team losing at home by 20 to a Frankston team with ony 1 import. Not good. And there is the new Victorian Director of Coaching. What a joke.

Wallace should have removed himself several years ago.
1-5 is a disgrace.

Mt Gambier looking playoffs bound at least.

Bandits will likely struggle to avoid the spoon rather than repeat but they somehow manage to win in OT with both imports and Opacic fouled out.

Ballarat come crashing back to Earth with 2 losses.

Both Tassie teams getting a road double too.

It will be hard to tip a top 4 in south pool.

Frankston played some decent defense against a big line up. Undersized but limited their opposition to under 60 pts.

Sandy beats Knox, NW beats Dandenong and then Ballarat.

Geelong clearly the best team with Mt Gambier next.

Was Frankston's win a fluke ?

Frankston work hard and are well coached. But when you are playing Kilysth who can only score 50 odd points in a 40 minute game it helps. Frankston could be 5 and 1 with a bit of luck and 2 imports. They should be in line for the 4 th spot come playoff time all depends on 2 nd import

Wallace must be under the pump.Thats a very ordinary performance.

Now that Wallace has left the GM position at Kilsyth you would think he is under the pump to keep his job for the remainder of the season.

At worst he won't be back in 2014..(The club might just wait out the season as finals are pretty much out of question!)

For clarification - this was actually Round 5 of the SEABL, not Round 4.

Havent seen Geelong this season and i wouldnt expect Beth to answer this but Barrett v Mercer who is better.

Hard to say this early on, Barrett seemed more dominant last year and stood out a lot more than his fellow import Theron Wilson. But since Barrett's injury, Wilson stepped it up late last year and this year the imports seem to be more evenly matched. With Herbert back as well, Geelong have the luxury of being able to share the scoring load a lot more. I think Mercer is a good player but is playing a different role to what was expected of Barrett.

Geelong are just plain stacked and very, very good. Could they go undefeated and if so, has anyone done it in SEABL ?

They can't go undefeated because they have already dropped one game against Albury in Round 2.

Whos playing the 1 and 2 at Geelong as its a bit hard to work it out with the depth they have?

Nick Owusu still the starting point guard, and having a great season so far. Starting lineup seems to change on a game by game basis which again is the luxury of having such a deep bench. This week their starting five was Owusu, Herbert, Mercer, Wilson and Seb Loader. Last game I saw it was Ash Cannan in the line up instead of Wilson. They have a lot of guys who can play several positions and who are happy to share minutes around which makes for good team chemistry.

Keep the SEABL threads coming. Happy to see more as there are always NBL players people would be keen to follow, plus upcoming imports who might make the jump up a league.

The key for Geelong is to keep winning and if thats the case everybody will be comfortable playing a role. Would expect to see Kimani Barrett back in the league next year.12 months rehab and should be ready to go. Calvin Henry doing a demolition job in the Big V.

Good to see ex SEABL player Calvin Henry have his second 40+ point game in a row for Mildura looks like he is enjoying the relaxed country lifestyle.

Supercats are a very professional outfit, the time and effort, attention to detail and pre game preparation by Jamie O'Loughlin and his coaching staff is second to none.

Along with this they have filled the gaps from last year very well by introducing Ash Canan and their two US imports along with local boy Herbert coming back to give the team a real NBL feel about the offence IMO.

Remembering that PG Dave Mecanovic was finding his best form just before he did his knee and is out for a season, this gap has been filled well and truly by Nick Owusu and the captian Jamie Medved.

Yes, they have depth and talent, but it is their application and effort to do the small things and prepare to succeed that stands out for me...

My Round 5 wrap of the SEABL can be found here: http://andthefoul.net/archives/5905

Will be putting weekly articles up on AndTheFoul.net, with the focus on some of the NBL guys in the SEABL and some who have the potential to be in the NBL in the future

Enjoyable reading Beth. I like the addition of your own thoughts rather than just the clinical game report that appears on the SEABL site. I'd like to see more of that plus some in-depth analysis of teams/players, performances (other than just top scorers & MVP that SEABL provides), league gossip & so on. Open up that dirt file too ;)

Enjoyed the article above, knocked most things on the head.

I would just like to know how many games have the Pioneers won at home in the last 4 years. It would be a pretty interesting statistic. They have been quite successful at home over the last 4 years and with the group they have now they should be able to advance this further???
