From Hoopssa-
"The High Stakes Hoops tournament has been a bold experiment. Interesting games, unforeseen levels of live Australian basketball coverage on TV, and rule modifications.

It's not without its flaws, but the two-pronged criticism of crowds and ticket prices has been addressed today.

Just spoke with tournament organiser JVG and he's offering free entry today to the first 150 people who use the code "Footlocker" at the ticket booth. If you miss out, entry has been halved from the original $30ish ticket price to $14.95.

There are two semi finals today. Doors open at 3pm with the first game at 3:45pm:

3:45 pm Rays v Rush
5:45 pm Fleet v Coasters

For the locals who haven't been paying much attention, the Fleet are Brett Maher's team, coached by Ken Cole and including Willie Farley and Luke Schenscher. All four teams include new imports you might not have seen before and familiar NBL faces. The standard of the games has been decent and the games are at Brett Maher Court, at the Dome.

The deciding Grand Final will be held on Sunday, so if you can't get away from work quick enough this evening, definitely try to get to the final game.

As a very good backup plan, all games are live on OneHD with commentary by Carfino, Woods, Rillie, Ronaldson, Bruton and other classic NBL names."

JR in fine form again.

Ronaldson has managed to hold off rigor mortis so far this week.
Theratt has his lucky chocolate suit on.

Daniel Dillon: "I dont think anyone in this comp can guard anyone on our team...
...No one else is as fit as as us coming in so we'll just wear them down."

JR: "Thanks mate, good luck and you keep that confidence rolling..."

Excellent 4th quarter between the Fleet & Coasters deservedly sends the game into OT.

Lampley & Farley were excellent in the second half, but a fantastic steal from Davidson followed by a big 3 won it.
Good to see a few people looking on by the end, which you'd hope with all of the Adelaide connections playing in these two teams.
