It's the final week of the regular season. For What's Luv and Unruly, they are locked into 1st and 2nd regardless of what happens in their final week. For everyone else, what happens on Monday will determine their seed going into the playoffs and they will be back on the 29th to start the 1st Round of the playoffs. Both What's Luv and Unruly will be back in action on May 6th to face the winners of the 1st Round.
Although this game is somewhat irrelevant for What's Luv, I'm certain they want to close out the season with a perfect regular season record. The Investment Academy is coming off arguably their best game of the season winning in OT over SWISH while What's Luv won in a statement game over the 2nd seeded Unruly.
The last time these two teams played it was an absolute blow out with What's Luv winning 94-56. Since then, there have been a few changes on both sides and as long as TIA play like they did last week, this should be a much closer game.
Grind Time can clinch 3rd, but the feeling I get is it doesn't matter who they line up against in the playoffs, they feel confident. Yes, this is despite losing 3 in a row. Last week was a definite step back for them as they lost to the last place Box Out. For SWISH, it was a tough loss last week losing to TIA. SWISH obviously played well enough to win this game but ended up getting outplayed in OT. Expect a close game tonight. The last time these two teams met Grind Time edged SWISH 62-58. Can Grind Time secure the 3rd seed or will SWISH finish the season on a winning note?
Unruly is the favourite, but don't count out Box Out. Unruly has been regarded as the 2nd best team in the league for most of the regular season while Box Out has been the worst, well, that has now changed. Box Out started out 0-5, but going into this game, they've won 2 in a row and are looking rejuvenated. If they can pull of 3 straight wins to close out the season that would be impressive. For Unruly, this game doesn't really matter as they are locked into the 2nd seed, but after the loss to What's Luv I'm certain they want to win and also work on a few things they struggled with last week.
Please note that head-head will be the 1st tie-breaker. If no winner can be determined, we will go to point differential. If it is a 3-4 way tie, the best record from head-head-head(-head) will determine order.
Please also note there are no games on Easter Monday.
Good luck all!
