Im amazed Albury can stomach sending their girls into the SEABL comp again. Its degrading. They should play BigV where they might at least be competitive and be able to enjoy their basketball.
They are ridiculously far off the pace in SEABL. I feel for those girls, who (for at least the first 2/3rds of the season) gave a huge effort each week but were simply not talented enough to be competitive. Harsh reality, but its the truth. They're not good enough, and no matter how earnest the new coach will be in trying to improve them individually, they won't get good enough to win more then 1 or 2 games for a few years yet. If James Ballinger couldn't do it, then who can? James gave those girls every opportunity to improve, but they didn't have the capacity to improve enough to look like they belong in SEABL.
This year was the most competitive year SEABL has had in ages on the women's side, with all top 4 teams from both conferences seeming like they could take the championship at some point in the season. And those teams are only going to get better next season. Albury is a laughing stock.
