Playoff Preview - 13th/14th April

Basketball’s most exciting time of the year is here.

 

Just two Endeavour Ipswich Basketball teams have qualified for the 2023/2024 post season (three including the Academy women), but that doesn’t mean things are any less exciting!

 

On Saturday, our Senior Women start things off with a home draw against Bristol Flyers at 1pm at Copleston. Our women’s team, who have already won the National Cup and WNBL Division One league championships, are attempting to make history with a third trophy in a single season. Should they do the ‘treble’, they will become the first team to have won all three trophies in one season since the WBBL split from the National League in 2014. In order to complete that feat, they will need to dispatch of a tricky Bristol team who’s record does not do the talent they have at their disposal justice. Just a month ago, Bristol visited Ipswich, and despite a twenty-eight point deficit at the half, the visitors pulled the lead within just eight points early in the fourth quarter. Ipswich will no doubt start as favourites, but Bristol are no pushovers and are capable of causing an upset with their size, experience and firepower. One of either Brent Bulls or Loughborough Riders will be waiting in the final four.



Then, on Sunday (14th) it’s the turn of the u18 women, who are defending the u18 National Championship they won in Manchester last season. The team host Charnwood Riders for a place in the Final Four at 3:30pm at Copleston. A win would mark a third consecutive trip to the showcase event, but Charnwood are anything but an easy game. Whoever wins will face the winner of the Manchester Mystics vs Sussex Storm match the following weekend.


 

Both games are a huge chance for the club to come together, grab our blue wigs and get behind our amazing teams.
