Tshwane Bladerunners hope to dominate Semifinal playoffs

Johannesburg (20 August 2014) – The Pretoria based – outfit, Tshwane Bladerunners hope to dominate this week’s  National Wheelchair Basketball League playoffs when they meet arch rivals, Westville Wings at the at the home of Wheelchair Basketball (Vodacom Mandeville Indoor Centre).

The 2010 National Wheelchair Basketball League champions hope to add silverware in their cabinet after failing to win the league three years in a row.

Speaking ahead of his weekend matches, WBSA Chief Executive Officer Charles Saunders alluded that the road to the semi finals has not been an easy one for franchise teams like AngloGold Ashanti Lions and Westville Wings who struggled in earlier rounds to maintain a Top four position.

“Westville Wings displayed solid performances throughout the season despite the fact that they had a fairly young team. Most of their players have just turned 19 and 20 years of age,” He said. The top four teams are Tshwane Bladerunners, Pumas, AngloGold Ashanti Lions and Westville Wings.

Charles said the AGA Lions lost valuable log points in round one and two for not complying to the playing of the “Lady” rule, and had eight points deducted from them for not registering a lady on game days.

“This rule was introduced early this year to give more game time to eight women who play for the National team to train in the men National League. The eight women will represent South Africa in the Paralympic Qualifiers in October next year.

Saunders explained that the games taking place this weekend are semi final playoffs for the bottom four and top four classification games. It determines the 7th, 8th, 6th and 5th playoffs and the top four teams that will contest for top honours (2014 National trophy).

“The SuperSeries is the premier league for National clubs. It represents the top 96 players and eight coaches in the country. From this structure, WBSA selects its high performance players and coaching staff. As seen on performance of the Sasol Amawheelaboys, the process assists the National coaching staff to assess players in action and select on performance.
