As the Divisions start to take shape, we look back at the first bunch of games of 2023.
In a hotly anticipated game, the Bears hosted the also undefeated Salisbury Suns for top of the table honours; and it was the Bournemouth team that came out on top with another MVP performance from Mark Gorman.
Tigers hosted Storm in a super close game, that went down to the final possession, with Storm taking the game by 3.
Titans have kept their top2 finish hopes alive, with wins over Razors and Evolution, to take them to 4w-2L.
Evolution took the honours in a close game with Razors, which finished 56-49. Evo sit mid-table, in 5th, above Storm on Points Difference.
The next anticipated game saw Bournemouth Oaks host Salisbury Suns, for the claim on 2nd spot. It was the Oaks came out on top 71-62, with 28pts from Adam Stakvilsvicius.
Bandits got their season off the ground, with a win over Storm, which jumps them above Tigers on Point Difference.
The new joiners have started strong, with Spartans chasing the top contenders. They've had wins over BG Suns, Legends and Seahawks, showing their size and strength, backed up by good shooting. However, they came unstuck against the experience of the Classics, who got the win 60-48.
Classics they had a close game with the Suns, but stole the win 68-65, with Bishop getting the MVP honours. They also beat Legends, but fell to the youthful Storm U18s.
Storm U18 had a huge win over Bandits2, to cement their hold on the top spot. Whilst Bandits2 seemed to struggle to start, with that big loss, and then a forfeit to Blazers, they bounced back with a win over Seahawks at home.
Blazers haven't played a game in 2023, with the walkover, but next face Spartans, on Wednesday, which should be a great game.
Suns have gone 0-3 in '23, which a close, low scoring game vs. Seahawks, the tight game with Classics and the loss to Spartans. But we can't write them off yet.
Still all to play for in Div2.
