NBL1 South

Made it to the Tigers Vs Wildcats game on Sunday. Both teams looked average to be honest. I havent made it to an NBL1 game since pre covid but is the talent drop across the board or just these two?

The Tigers did a good job coming back from 32-16 down early in the second to win the game. Always fun seeing a Gaze splash a few threes while his Dad is on the sidelines.

Tigers definitely feel like a budget operation, not even playing at the showcourt of MSAC

Young Mason is a nice dude

Good to see he's still balling and doing well by the looks of it- in the starting 5, donning his Dad's number 10

I suspect it's those 2 and probably a few others.

Think you will find that some clubs will conserve the $$ this year after 2 years of minimal income, thus putting themselves into a bigger hole. While other clubs will buy themselves a chip this year and possibly suffer in a few years time when the money runs out.

You can go several directions, build from within, which it looks like what the Wildcats have done (looked like a fair number from their youth program???), or you can go out and recruit/buy a squad. Neither is right or wrong just different processes. Clubs just have to go with what works for them in any given time, both in the short term and the long term.

It's very average across the board. U18 players filling in. Not good

Mt. Gambier are looking like championship material. Harris, Kubank and Marshall are killing it and possibly the best 3 Aussie combo in the league. Stalwart Daly plus a second import are also still to come.

Agreed 193. I've watched the Pioneers first two games and I must say both their women and men have been impressive. More so what their men have done isn't getting enough attention. Harris, Kubank, De Wit (first game, out second) and Marshall (out first, in for second) have played some of the most incredible basketball i've seen in a long time. They're out hustling teams that on paper are considerably bigger and meant to have more talent.
