The Finals Picture
The SEABL home and away season finished on Saturday night with losses to both the St Laurence Geelong Supercats and the Roderick Geelong Lady Supercats against the Bendigo Braves at the Geelong Arena.
Despite the losses, both teams had already secured second place on the East Conference, setting up a first round semi final double header against the first placed Dandenong Rangers.
The teams will travel to Dandenong Basketball Stadium on Saturday 18th August, with the women's game tipping off at 5.30pm and the men at 7.30pm. The winner of each game will earn the right to host the conference grand final two weeks later, while the loser will return to their home court one week later for the preliminary final and the chance to get back into the grand final.

The bus will depart the Geelong Arena at 4.00pm to arrive in Dandenong in time for the 5.30pm tip off of the women's game and will return to Geelong at the conclusion of the men's game.
