NBL1 National Finals: Looking ahead to day 1
The conference champions and wildcards will assemble at Victoria's State Basketball Centre for a feast of hoops, and to crown a national champion.
Using a similar format to the NBL Blitz, the NBL1 National Final will see each conference winner and a wildcard entrant play each other in randomly drawn fixtures this Friday and Saturday, competing for a place in Sunday’s championship game. Teams will accumulate points over the first two days that determine their final rankings, meaning each moment matters.
Here’s our look at the first night of competition and the stars to watch.
