Men`s finals game 1
Saturday: 20:30 Amicale Steinsel – T71 Dudelange
The number 7 seed Amicale enters the finals with home court advantage against the number 8 seed T71 Dudelange.

Women`s finals game 1
Saturday: 17:00 T71 – Résidence
In the women`s finals, we will see a rematch of the cup final between number one seed T71 and number 2 seed Résidence. While the women from Dudelange enter the series as the slight favorite because of their strong season overall, the team of coach Altmann knows that Walferdange can be a very difficult opponent. The finals will be decided in a best-of-3 series!

Promotion and relegation series
Game 1 on Sunday 18:30 – Avanti Mondorf VS AB Contern
A very exciting series between Mondorf (National 2) and Contern (LBBL) will decide which team will play in the LBBL next season. Mondorf has played a surprisingly strong season in the National 2 and for the club these next 2 or 3 games are the biggest in the history of the club. Khalil Small (picture) has led the National 2 in scoring with over 30 points per game, the second professional player John Ross averaged 22 points and the team also had 3 JICL players with more than 6 points per game ( full National 2 scoring list –> Hoffmann and Small earn National 2 scoring titles ). Contern will surely not underestimate the opponent, coach Gavin Love wants to help the club stay in the highest league before he will look for a new challenge after the season. Mondorf will have home court advantage in game 1 and also in a possible game 3.
