NBL Central Men & Women Grand Finals

As always I don't follow the women's too closely but will give it a crack, but would be good to get others thoughts on how both games will play out. Massive effort by North to get two teams into the Grand Final after both were in the initial 4 vs 5 elimination game.

Women's final
Southern Tigers vs North Adelaide Rockets

Southern have been the class of the league all season only dropping a couple of games and leading the league virtually the whole way. I notice North were one of the teams who got a win over them (which allowed the Rockets to make finals) however Yaeger was sidelined at that time and North were playing for their season while the Tigers were cruising into a bye week at that point.

Some very interesting matchups with Yaeger vs Ortlepp which I think is a break even, both capable scorers and distributors, Yaeger maybe a bit more efficient by the numbers. And inside Morrell vs Good could go a long way to determining the game, Morrell has had the better season and rightly took home MVP honours but Good had a big second half of the season and has had monster rebound numbers recently.

Shooting will be important for both sides with North having a slight advantage there but Southern have a size advantage & that may be too much to overcome.

Southern by 7 with COTY Clarke capturing a title in his first season.

Men's Final
Norwood Flames vs North Adelaide Rockets

Norwood earned the week off after beating Sturt soundly in the Semi, while North did the same in the preliminary final, winning by similar margins.

MVP CJ Turnage had a huge year and was exceptional against Sturt, scoring inside and out as well as finding open team mates (Joel Spear also great in that game, still very surprised he wasn't All Star 5). North will have their hands full with him, while Green has really stepped up his game late in the season to prove effective on both ends of the floor. Harding, Lycett and Webber all play their roles and hit enough from the perimeter that they need to be respected, while all are positive defenders and their size makes them very switchable.

Dech and McVeigh showed on the weekend why they are among the leagues best players, and played well together which hasn't always been the case this year. Dau and Williams were down in the prelim and that may be of concern for the Rockets as they will need both firing to stick with the Flames in this one. Williams' size could be exposed against the bigger Flames while Dowdell is giving up size to Green.

Who guards CJ will be very interesting for the Rockets while McVeigh is an easier cover with multiple Flames capable of slowing him down.

Sticking with the form team, Flames to win it in a close one. Norwood by 5.

Without any imports and losing 4 rotation players to college I think it would've been an amazing effort for Sturt to make the grand final.
Calligeros and Daly were not up to it vs Norwood + even if they had their full line up 9 games out of 10 they are losing to North w Dech & Mcveigh.

Dech is a huge in for the rockets, great defense and elite outside shooting. Will be interested to see how the Rocket support cast play under the big lights, no doubt Norwood will test Staude and Jimma's outside shooting prowess.

My tips - North men in very close game (maybe even OT), Southern women after North challenging for 3/4s - if North women win it will be one of the greatest womens ABL / Central/ NBL1 finals wins on record. Will be a great couple of games.

So the Southern President and puppet master push out a Southern Junior as JDO/Men's Coah to build the club around an American, his wife and his mates. Then the President does a runner, and the American coach and wife are off too. Sounds about right for Southern.

Sturt went into the season knowing two starters wouldn't finish the season but played them for big minutes anyway. Knowing they'd peak mid-season and not have the talent come finals to compete.

Sturt is not the victim here. They made a decision others did not. They chose their path.

Actually they could. If they were related to the Comp Manager who allowed it for a certain club then after the fact changed the By-Laws so that it was ok. But agree North made the tough decision to go with the guys that would be there til the end. Sturt didn't. They got the finals outome they deserve for their own decisions.

As someone else said, Sturt don't care, its Seniors. They can't win so they just don't compete and claim they're taking the high road. From what I've been told they're still in debt so it hasn't really worked for them.

Rather than bag Sturt for going out in straight sets, I think it is fair to say they perhaps overachieved by having such a great season to finish top. Many wouldn't have predicted that.

Similarly, North have done extremely well to make the grand final given the clash between the NBL and NBL1 seasons.

Norwood are in great form. Should be a great grand final.

Some great match ups and arguably the best two players in the league competing in CJ and McVeigh.

I'm sure Norwood women are still a little pissed at Southern for losing that last regular season game which could have gotten them into the finals spot.

Despite all the stats, etc - who does everyone want to win and lose.

North men - cause we're tired of the Webbers running the show and if they win, even though Turnage deserves a win - we will never hear the end of it that they are the greatest of all time. Really Turnage carried that team the entire season - Green can only play in spurts.

Women - I don't think anyone really cares either side on who wins. Maybe karma might bite Tigers in the rear end - they've played well all season and choking at the end would be the end of all ends. Might see a number of more players leave if that happens.

Anonshotter, everytime Sturt don't make it we hear the same junior development bullshit. Here's a different way to look at it, the club is lazy. They can't be bothered getting imports to surround these wunderkinders. Hence they don't win. They are only interested in their junior program. And before the old line of playing the juniors get trotted out again, part of playing seniors is learning to play with 1 or 2 imports. That will happen wherever you play in the world. So in fact the club not being assed with imports is actually doing the juniors more harm than good.

Clearly chasing the money oh and also asked 2 of their starting 5 to go up to WA with him. This is a blessing for Southern wasn't a great head coach so now they can find a better coach for the mens and someone more invested in the JDO role.

End of the day North as a club would be very comfortable with the amount spent compared to other clubs.

They would be very comfortable with having women in the Final and North Men winning it. Comfortable that this success is underpinned by sustainability. This gives all their kids at state jnr level and over in Canberra a winning program to play and develop in on their way to the pro ranks.

It gives a great program for the club to get behind, invest in and aspire to be a part of.

The only people upset about what North has done and is doing is those that are not in the red and white because Norths success will impede their own. I do not think North are too concerned about those people.

Its sad to see another club buy in to the self interest. They are not the first and wont be the last. There is another out there right now. Some people use Clubs as a stepping stone/quick cash. Committees fall for their self promotion and buy in believing they can reinvent the wheel.

I'm sure the team they brought in have done some good things. I've seen from a distance some of their work. But clubs need long term planning from Committees not quick fixes. If they move on Southern will have to either take a long slow cheap process to competitiveness (in juniors) and growth of their small numbers and influence OR find some money and spend it to bring in one of the few club builders left around, of which there's maybe 2-3 left in Adelaide with a track record. One of which they sacked and he just won a title elsewhere so count him out.

My guess is they'll aim high and end up somewhere in the middle, slightly over spend for someone with high energy but will do a lot of learning on the job who will do what they can and probably remain stable.

They're not the only club settling for middle of the road looking behind them rather than ahead.

Southern were on life support a few years ago. A husband and wife duo appears. Wife is one of best players in league, husband is looking for coaching opportunity. Men's team is decimated so what's the harm, at least the women will be fine. Wife proceeds to be best player in competition and wins title. Men's team surprises and makes playoffs before they are eliminated by one of worst passes in history. Up by 2, your ball on the side, seconds to go. Worst case scenario is you take 5 second violation and setup defence, instead your point guard throws a floater across court leading to wide open dunk to tie and the season ends in overtime.
Now suddenly both partners are hot properties. Interstate club offers big money, longer term plan is husband continues coaching career. Southern after getting into major financial trouble in previous seasons buying titles suddenly have to make decision. Which was probably wise.

Southern Tigers processes is what failed. Apparently failed to collect subs from hundreds and hundreds of kids over a two and a half year period, to the tune of $250,000. If true, they deserve to be in the position they now find themselves.

His brother in law was not the Treasurer when the money issues occurred.

So what if he was the only full time staff member. Still doesn't mean he had control over the accounts, or fee collection. He was in control of basketball.

The Treasurer was a fraud and the committee didn't ever discuss the clubs finances until it was too late. Why did BSA remove the committee members responsible if it was Dean's adult?

Back to the game - Norwood just didn't have enough around Turnage. Lycett is still classy but not MVP level classy, more perimeter based now and rarely gets on the rim. Harding more sizzle than steak and D Webber a non factor. Green had moments but can’t seem to dominate for long stretches.

Dech was great on Turnage which is no surprise but watching the last few games I’ve been surprised how good his passing has been. He is a great player and does things the right way. Dowdell was massive and could have been mvp, easily won the matchup with Green. McVeigh not at his best but did enough and hit some shots when it counted. Easily the most passionate on court! Dau a nice cameo particularly early while Staude & Williams were both quiet they played their role.

North had to beat every finals team to win the title, hard to argue against them being very worthy winners.

but the after the Men's mid-season slump seemed like the head coaching gig and managing *that* team was too much and he wasn't going to come back, even if he was married to the MVP

He was paid to look after junior district and his buddy was paid to look after domestic. They didn't do those things out of goodwill, it was their job to do them.
