427 Cougars 60 - 93 Team Gloster Jets
331 Tornadoes 63 - 68 Worcester Basketball
The two results listed above bring to an end the post Christmas league phase of the season.
Congratulations to Worcester Basketball, who were unbeaten after Christmas, and are crowned winners of the 1st division title.
The Warriors, in their first year in the GBBA, take the runners-up spot.
The 2nd division title goes to the YMCA Eagles, who just piped Gloster Jets by the narrowest of margins on points difference.
The Cup competition was plagued by team withdrawals, mainly caused by teams having insufficient eligible players available to play. In the end there are 7 teams left, not even sufficient to have Cup and Plate semi finals.
Therefore, the competition will proceeed in a different format, on one day, Sunday 15 May, at Cirencester Deer Park School.
The Cup competition will have semi finals and final, including the four teams who won games in the Cup groups (Worcester, Warriors, Pumas, Jets).
The Plate competition will be played on a triangular basis, between the remaining three teams (Mavericks, Eagles, Cougars).
The games will be 4 x 8 minutes (with all other rules remaining the same), and each teamís handicap will be reduced by 20% correspondingly.
We also to intend to present trophies for the league competitions on this day to any teams who wish to attend.
