CABL round 17

My picks for penultimate minor round:

WOMEN
Forestville d Mavs by 18
North d South by 12, but in a hard-won game
Norwood to cruise past Woodville by 44
West d Southern by 16 in a scrappy (crappy) game
Sturt to outrun Centrals by 24

MEN
Forestville overpower Mavs by 21
South too slick for disintegrating North by 15
Woodville under some pressure, over the line by 3 against Norwood
West practice a bit more transition, by 22 over Southern
Centrals damage Sturt's finals hopes, in a close one by 4

I think the South women may just defeat North. Both sides know they are playing for the double chance and that may make it a less than friendly game. Lets hope that the game get's good ref's .

Suggest you may not have seen Southern (W) last couple of games which, ok they've lost but have been far from scrappy & crappy playing a quick entertaining style (scoring 82 & 86).

BTW I've got no connection with Southern, just an impartial observation.

Razor, I suggest you didnt observe Southern's (W) game of the 12 July against the Eagles or the PnR review of that game.

"The Eagles have made a mockery of the Tigers, demolishing them by 60 points on their home court...... Southern were lucky to get away with only a 60 point loss, as they were embarrassed all over the court."

My money on South Women to beat North

Anonymous they're just predictions. Just suggesting Southern have an up side as well and are more than capable of beating West if they're on. I'd also differ from Rock in predicting a comfortable South win.

With Andrew Just and Neil Frost on the North V South Women's game you make your mind up.

Ahhh, the Ghost who walks... long time no chat :)

You know with Frosty's dad about that it's a Neddy No-No to discuss the umpires!

Is the game North or South? Been on receiving end of many home court advantages.

Good luck!!!

The MOTR in the women's draw is North vs South. Could go either way, but will tip the Panthers to jump the Rockets. It's Jo's year, but the Panthers just seem the be the quiet achievers this season winning when it matters and this is a game that matters.

In the mens, there are two MOTR.
Norwood v Woodville. Norwood are hotter than the MFS calendar at the moment. Fire Chief Cooper doing his job well and all his players obliging with the baby oil to get those Norwood fans even more excited. They have a chance to lock in the Minor Premiership with a win and the Flames would be over the moon to have a double MP. Woodville with all the right moves will make it as hard as they can for them. They need to win by +15 to threaten the Flames for the top spot. Norwood would be well advised to open the doors to any junior to pack the bleachers. Hey, I would even throw a free sausage sizzle for anyone wearing red and blue. Woodville might be a goal short, but I am sure they will be launching more missiles on goals than a rebel with a bad accent and a vodka hangover.

Centrals v Sturt. Centrals with the opportunity to lock in 3rd spot and get the double chance. Sturt need this game, plus a win next week, then need Eagles to be beaten by either Mavs or the Wockets. Centrals have basically been in the 5 all year and only spent a week out (if you looked closely that week you could see the throbbing blood vessel in Scott Whitmore's forehead) Sturt are a bit more desperate, but Lions can smell fear and looking to secure the second chance should hammer that nail in the Sturt coffin. I shouldn't give the home crowd ideas, but I now have a picture of the Starplex crowd hammering imaginary nails at the end of the game.

Sturt women to only win by 24? Centrals scored 25 points last week.. I would expect Sturt to win by at least 40!

How can Sturt suit up both Marino and Novosel??

Good question. Anyone have an answer to that one?

Marino was a Sturt junior right through from u14s to ABL. I guess that might mean something.
I believe she has played over 100 games at ABL level for Sturt, that might count for something.

She might even be a life member at Sturt, whatever their rules are...

But she has played Olympic basketball for New Zealand therefore is classed as a restricted foreign player! Same as Novasel therefore how can they have both of them playing

It is a joke then if there is an overriding clause saying BSA don't follow rules if don't like them. So the threat of legal action makes them capitulate again to a big club, if true, makes a mockery of the competition. What about loyal WNBL players returning. I give up on this sport if BSA allow this

She's played for Lightning with 2 foreign players the last couple of seasons - where was your argument then. And loyalty - she's been playing with Sturt since about U10s.

The BSA rules are clear for CABL which is the issue. Not WNBL. There is no such thing as a loyalty clause relevant to this issue.

General Rule
a) Each team may register a maximum of two players who are classified as Restricted, a maximum of one of whom is classified as Foreign. Players are classified as Restricted and/or Foreign based on the criteria defined in this section.
Foreign Player
b) All players must adhere to FIBA and Basketball Australia policies with respect to foreign players.
c) A player who is a non-Australian citizen and is required by FIBA to hold a Foreign Players Licence is classified as both Foreign and Restricted.
d) A player who is a non-Australian citizen but who immigrated to Australia with their parents prior to their fifteenth (15th) birthday may apply to FIBA for a Special Foreign Player Licence. A player who holds a Special Foreign Player License is exempt from by-law 3.5 c).
e) A player who is an Australian Citizen but has represented another country in an official FIBA tournament (Zone Qualifier, World Championships and or Olympics) and therefore is ineligible to represent Australia, is classified as both Foreign and Restricted.

Therefore Novosel and Marino classify as Foreign.

BUT consider:
Loyalty
i) A players who has played more than 100 games in the Central ABL Women's league, or 150 games in the Central ABL Men’s league, or has played in 8 Central ABL seasons as unrestricted players with one club in the Central ABL is not classified as Restricted if they play in the Central ABL for that club.

Therefore novosel = Foreign
Marino = Loyalty clause

Sturt are legal......unfortunately;)
