On Tuesday and Wednesday night 60 girls teams will play for 30 premierships while on Saturday 80 boy’s teams will contest 40 Grand Finals.
The Grand Finals will bring to an end another successful Season for the Association. This success includes numerous Basketball Victoria awards and another season of growth in both the number of teams and the quality of the competition.
Of the 15 clubs playing in the K&MDBA competition all will be represented in at least one grand final. K&MDBA President Mal Allison said “It was great to see a diverse mixture of clubs represented in the finals. It goes to show no matter what colours you are wearing everyone is able to participate in a Grand Final.”
“The standard of basketball continues to grow within the Association. This goes to show the hard work the domestic clubs have put into fostering players of all skill levels and abilities.”
The role of officials in Grand Finals is an important aspect often overlooked, the Association appreciates the efforts of all referees and scorers and the contribution they make to the game. “Grand Finals are high pressure situations that bring out the best in players and officials. I would like to make a special mention to the continual improvement of the referees in our Association. They also conduct themselves in professional manner, clearly demonstrating a commitment to their role in the game,” said Mr. Allison
