The 2017- 18 finals are set with the two best of three semi-final series tipping off on January 3rd, the winners progressing onto the Grand Final commencing January 13th.

With six semi-finals games spread over four states and six days, the action is set to be world class with super star talent battling it out for the 2017-18 Championship.

Semi Final One will consist of Perth Lynx and the Deakin Melbourne Boomers, with Perth securing that home court advantage thanks to a record 14 game winning streak. The teams will start their series in Melbourne, tipping off on Wednesday January 3rd at 7:30pm AEDT at the State Basketball Centre in the new AWAY, HOME, HOME finals structure. The best of three series will then move to Perth as they battle for a shot at the Championship.

The JCU Townsville Fire and Brydens Sydney Uni Flames continue to jostle for the high ladder position through round 13, the second semi-final match up going down to the wire. The teams will play each other in one of two games this weekend before the match up is set.

The close race for finals positions only highlights the quality of competition that will no doubt carry over into the finals series.

“The league is thrilled with the success of the season and the finals series promises to be one of the most hotly contested we’ve seen.” Head of the WNBL Sally Phillips said.

“To be back on TV, all games being broadcast live on FOX SPORTS is a huge positive for clubs and athletes; we know fans won’t be disappointed with what they’ll see on FOX

SPORTS and what they’ll experience in-stadium on game day.  The athletes that will be competing throughout the WNBL finals are globally elite, the world-class.”
