The NBL this week announced that the SE Melbourne Phoenix are entering the NBL in the 2019/20 season.
This means basketball fans in Victoria have a local choice of two teams again since they got to choose between the Tigers and the Dragons back in the late 00’s.
There are a number of Tigers fans who did not stick with Melbourne United when they dropped the Tigers name and some may choose to follow the Phoenix though at the moment some are quite happy to stick with the Sydney Kings.
Meanwhile the Sydney Kings with former NBL Tigers Andrew Gaze and Lanard Copeland coaching and SEABL 2018 season Tigers Tom Wilson and Deng Acouth getting some court time have improved to have a 5-3 record.
Bec Cole who helped get the Tigers Women get into the second week of SEABL Finals this year was named on the Round 6 Team of the Week in the WNBL and is doing well with the Dandenong Rangers.
Meanwhile the countdown continues down for the next Tigers season in the Senior Elite League that replaces SEABL, there is ??? days to go.
That’s it for now.
