Earlier this year
Scheduled for September 10-12 (subject to Covid Situations I imagine), we have a little over two months until the 'National Championship' of the NBL1 competition.
Only the winner from each conference will get an invite, which should make for a great competition.
There's been plenty of talk about who's winning in each respective conference, but who's everyone pick to take home the biggest prize ?
The Contenders (top 4 from each Conference at the moment)
Lakeside Lightning, Perry Lakes Hawks, Willeton Tigers, Rockingham Flames
Sturt Sabres, Forestville Eagles, Southern Tigers, South Adelaide Panthers
Frankston Blues, NW Tasmania Thunder, Geelong Supercats, Hobart Chargers
Logan Thunder, Mackay Meteors, Brisbane Capitals, Townsville Heat
Joondalup Wolves, Rockingham Flames, Willeton Tigers, Warwick Senators
Southern Tigers, Sturt Sabres, South Adelaide Panthers, Forestville Eagles
Frankston Blues, Launceston Tornadies, Bendigo Braves, Knox Raiders
SD Spartans, Logan Thunder, Mackay Meteors, Townsville Flames
A few programs doing very well with Teams in the top 4 in both Mens & Womens (Frankston on top of both in their conference, at the time of writing this).
Very cool initiative this. Looking forward to it and possibly the closest we will get to an NCAA National Tourney.
Who's winning the National Championship ?
Or is there a sleeper outside these top 4's that can make a late charge home ?
