Did Too many teams go Too Big?
Been a great season, closest I can ever remember by far, quite an achievement with only 8 teams.
I haven't analysed this, so its only an impression.
That a lot of teams seem to have assembled very top heavy squads?
And if you look at the teams that struggled in the end, and even at Perth along the way, it was lack of depth in the backcourt that killed them.
Sydney rode Lisch into the ground, Brissy were left floundering once they lost Gibson, NZ only looked threatening after belatedly adding Dillard, and Perth were stuffed until Cotton came along.
Even MU, who looked deadly with Ware and Goulding on court, struggled when they rested.
