The Perth Wildcats will miss the NBL finals for the first time since 1986 after falling at home to South East Melbourne in overtime,…
Perth have been awarded the NBL championship, the league announcing their decision two days after their finals series against Sydney was cancelled.
Perth have been awarded this season’s NBL title, the Wildcats handed the crown two days after their finals series against Sydney was called off.
The NBL cancelled the best-of-five series on Tuesday, with Perth leading 2-1 ahead of Friday’s fourth game in Western Australia.
That decision came because Sydney, citing the threat of coronavirus, refused to play while Perth maintained they were ready and willing to continue.
