BRIDGWATER Blackhawks Basketball are going to enter the SBL play-off competition.

The Play-Off competition format, as in previous years, will be two semi-finals and a final to determine the SBL Play-Off Champions. First-place Bridgwater Blackhawks will play fourth-place Huish Tigers and second-place Bridgwater Bucs will play third-place Taunton Dragons.

This season has been a great success with some fantastic basketball and very competitive games.

Here is a round-up: 17 games were decided by 10 or less points, 11 games were decided by five or fewer, and three were incredibly close, being decided by just one or two points.

There was one game requiring overtime this season. Two new teams (and some familiar names) joined the league in Bridgwater Blackhawks and Chard Flight.

A total of 3,947 baskets were scored (7,438 points) across all games. Of those baskets 2,241 were two-point field goals (4,482 points), 625 were three-point field goals (1,875 points) and 1,081 were made free-throws.
The most points scored in a single game this season was 118 by Taunton Tornados.

A big thank you to all our officials this season - special mentions to Igors Kuznecovs, Shervin Farzeneh, and George Adams who officiated 22, 19, and 16 games respectively.
Thanks also to Ian Spearman for once again coordinating officials for fixtures this season.

The club would like to thank all those who have performed the vital role of Scorer and Timekeeper over the season, special mentions to Mia Lane, Emily Adams, and Steph Jones (14 games each), and Megan Howe (13 games).

The SBL would also like to highlight the work done by Matt Lomen from Blackhawks, Phil Rogers from Bucs, Toby Veale from Dragons, Gary Carter from Tigers, Dan Howe from Tornados (1 & 2), Mason Galloway from Bucs 2 (as well as Committee Chairman), Brad Masters from Flight and all the other unnamed coaches and volunteers for each of our teams.
