By Rubén Morales Iglesias: As the regular season of the Belize Elite Basketball League (BEBL) winds down, four teams are competing for the final three spots in the playoffs.
At this point, the only team sure of a playoff spot is the Hurricanes with their 10-2 record. The Griga Dream Ballers (8-5), the Orange Walk Running Rebels (8-4), and the Belize City Defenders (7-5), all have positive records, but need to win nine games to secure a spot in the playoffs as the San Pedro Tiger Sharks (6-5) can still make a 9-5 record.
The Defenders need to beat the Tiger Sharks tonight at the Belize City Civic Center, otherwise they will find themselves in a bind. The other game tonight features the Belmopan Red Taigaz (4-8) against the league-leading Benny’s Belize Hurricanes (10-2) at the UB Gym at 9:00 pm.
On Saturday, the Western Ballers (5-8) go for the upset against the Griga Dream Balllers (8-5) at the Sacred Heart College Auditorium in San Ignacio, while South in Punta Gorda, the Panthers (1-12) host the Orange Walk Running Rebels (8-4).
