MELBOURNE UNITED HAVE refused to extend the contract of head coach Dean Demopoulos after the team failed to make the playoffs.
After leading the team to a first-place finish last season Demopoulos failed to replicate his efforts as the side fell short of a top four finish.
Given the roster United have you can certainly understand the decision – that being said, they did have a host of injuries to deal with throughout the campaign that garnered any momentum they had.
In what has arguably been the best NBL season to date, Adelaide 36ers and Illawarra Hawks will face-off tonight for a spot in the finals against Perth.
MVP Jerome Randle will look to lead the way for his side in what we believe will be a straightforward win for the home side.
After a comfortable 15 point win in Game One at home the Hawks will need some turnaround if they’re to stage a surprise upset in this one.
The line is still sitting at 5.5 in favour of the hosts, but expect that to blow out close to tip-off.
