Please be advised, that In accordance with the Basketball SA Hot Weather Policy all District matches scheduled to be played on Friday 9th February 2018 (today) have been cancelled due to forecast temperature being 39 degrees in the Advertiser Newspaper.
All matches scheduled at the following stadiums will be cancelled: Adelaide Hills, The ARC Campbelltown, Hillcrest, Marion, MARS, Morphett Vale, Pasadena, Port Adelaide, Starplex, Titanium Security Arena and Wayville.
To ensure the same opportunity is available to all for all teams, and given the restrictive timeframe leading into finals, no matches will be rescheduled.
In the instances where this creates an uneven number of byes / matches for teams, the following By-Laws will take effect:
1.15. Positions on the Premiership Table (page 7/8)
a) In competitions in which teams have an equal number of byes, including no byes, teams are classified according to the FIBA Official Rules of Basketball. The criteria for sorting the premiership ladder can be partially summarised as follows: i) Premiership points ii) Premiership points in games between tied teams iii) Percentage (points for divided by points against) in games between tied teams. Note that for two-way ties, this is equivalent to the result of the game between the tied teams then iv) Percentage (points for divided by points against) in games between all teams. v) However for the full detail of the classification criteria, please consult the FIBA rules.
b) In competitions in which teams have an unequal number of byes, positions will be determined as above, with the exception that “Premiership points” will be replaced by “Game Ratio”, which is defined as follows: (Wins+(½xDraws)–(½xForfeits)) / divided by Games Played
In addition, this formula will also be used when applying criteria a) ii) in cases where tied teams have played an unequal number of games against each other.
Note that the above definition of “Game Ratio” does not correspond exactly to the “PCWon” field on SportingPulse, as “PCWon” does not take forfeits into account.
This calculation will not be applied to the competitions ladder until after the last round of the system.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused as a result of the unprecedented heat.
