The biggest weekend on the Basketball Scotland calendar is here with the Scottish 2017 SBC Playoff Finals taking place at Scotland’s new National Performance Centre, Oriam. Also in action are Caledonia Pride who face a crucial WBBL encounter against Oakland Wolves. Matches start today at 10am, tickets are available in advance for each of the three sessions.
A great day of basketball action is in store with six matches in total across the morning, afternoon and evening sessions. The full line-up is as follows:-

Expect fierce competition on court with national honours at stake. And for Caledonia Pride it’s a great opportunity to build on their first home win of the season, last week against Sheffield Hatters, as they take on Oakland Wolves who they beat in the corresponding away fixture. A win for Pride will do their chances of a top eight finish, and with it a place in the WBBL play-offs, no harm at all.
