Interesting also is that 5 different players average over 30ppg so far.

Looks like teams are very weak with maybe just one or two decent players hence why they can score so much. Not a good comp at all compared to the Vic comps and SEABL

I think you will find the WABL is very strong - higher level than CABL. Clubs with generous budgets bring in solid imports.

West australian basketball league. Not rocket science. It also shits me how the southern States rate their league so highly. I think the QBL is possibly stronger.

Surely there's some imbalance in the talent level if players are easily able to put up numbers like that?

shin splints/Steve: WABL is the junior competition in Western Australia. SBL is the senior competition. That would be why there was confusion from Craig with the WABL comment

WA SBL Round 6: Easter upsets blow competition wide open

Easter long-weekend SBL action saw the men's competition blown wide open with perennial powerhouses Joondalup and Lakeside suffering defeat and only a single loss separating second from eighth by round’s end. Rockingham and Lakeside continued to dominate the women’s competition as the only two undefeated teams remaining in 2014, however more upsets meant mid-table congestion after six rounds.

Rockingham and Geraldton are now in what seems to be a two horse race for the minor premiership after both sides continued their winning ways in round ten SBL action, while in the women's competition it was the winless Perth Redbacks who pushed undefeated Rockingham all the way to show some much-needed improvement.

Should be a good crowd at the magic vs suns game next Sunday. Oh wait a minute magic vs suns sbl game is at Mandurah, while the Mandurah juniors are playing the suns in Kalamunda. Great fixturing by BWA, no crowd at an sbl game because the two junior clubs are playing at another venue. Is BWA a government department? Or do the people producing the fixtures not look at the wabl comp when scheduling Sunday sbl games.

A single win separates fourth from ninth in the men’s SBL standings after sixteen rounds, leaving plenty to the imagination with just a month of the regular season remaining. Meanwhile, East Perth’s men and Kalamunda’s women continue to look like genuine title threats from outside the top four as they continued their red-hot form, with the Eagles in particular thrashing second-placed Rockingham in an ominous warning for the rest of the league.

It's really getting interesting now, I think only 9 teams in the men have a legit chance of making the finals. With the Slammers win over Wanneroo last night it gives them an almost guaranteed chance to make it. They probably only need one more win of there next three to make it. They have beaten Wanneroo both times so if they finish on the same record the Slammers will make it. Perth, Mandurah and East Perth are hitting form at the right time and now all look like sure things to make the Playoffs. Stirling are 12-10 with a game against Kalamunda today which they should win giving them the same record as the Slammers. I believe it is down to the Slammers, Senators and Wolves for the final two spots with the South West and Stirling most likely to finish 7th and 8th. However both teams have a very tough final 3 games each and Wanneroo have a slightly easier draw and could sneak in. Looking forward to the last 3 weeks of action

Round 19 Recap was posted on PnR yesterday:

WA SBL Round 19: Buccs men looking shaky as Tigers women seem finals bound

Geraldton's men continued their patchy form ahead of the finals, splitting their weekend with another poor loss followed by an explosive win. The Buccs sit just one win clear on top of the ladder and will enter the finals on shaky ground after looking ominous earlier in the season. In the women’s competition, Willetton look to have secured an unlikely finals berth thanks to a strong win against high-flying Joondalup, with the Tigers turning their once-flailing season around in the final month of SBL 2014.

Perth's men and Lakeside’s women will go into the 2014 SBL finals as the hottest teams in their respective competitions after both continued to win in the final round of the season. With both sides securing a top four spot they will be poised to strike as they make a run at the title. One side who won’t be doing such things is Joondalup’s men, who failed to qualify for the playoffs after a gallant final round loss to Lakeside.
