Will the Sharks fairy-tale run to the finals continue, do they have enough on the defensive end to limit the impact of the Mustangs big 3?
The Mustangs don’t have defence high on their priority list, but will need to limit Lee Belton and James Topp. The Sharks beat the Pacers without Mackai Holland who no doubt will help them against the Mustangs.
Look Out For – Trent Lee has torched the league for majority of the season, it is now time for him to lead this Sharks group to a Championship. With very little point guard depth on the Mustnags roster this could be where the Sharks get the upper hand on the Mustangs.
Tip – Mustangs by 3 in O/T
Keep a look out for All-star 5 and All Defense teams which will be announced soon.
