EB/FIBA rules will apply with the following exceptions only:

4 periods of 8 minutes
Half time interval: 3 minutes
Periods of overtime will be of 3 minutes

Each team must provide one competent table official (able to act as scorekeeper or timekeeper) for their own game(s).

All court and refereesí costs will be met by GBBA.

Teams who have won awards during the season but who will not be playing on 15 May will be presented with these if they are present (otherwise they will be available at the AGM).

427 Cougars 60 - 93 Team Gloster Jets

331 Tornadoes 63 - 68 Worcester Basketball

Division Winners

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.

Cup Competition

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.
