2018 SBL Grand Final match-up and preview - Aug 25, 2018

In a rematch of the 2011 championship decider, the 2018 SBL Grand Final will see the Joondalup Wolves take on the Perry Lakes Hawks at Bendat Basketball Centre on Saturday 1 September.

The Wolves will contest their fourth consecutive grand final and seventh overall, while the Hawks will contest their first grand final since 2011 and ninth overall. After winning in 2015, the Wolves went on to lose back-to-back grand finals in 2016 and 2017. The three-time champions have also won titles in 1993 and 2011. The five-time champion Hawks will be looking to win their first championship since 2004, with their past three grand final attempts (2005, 2009 and 2011) all resulting in runners-up finishes.

In charge of the two grand final teams are championship-winners Ben Ettridge (Wolves) and Matt Parsons (Hawks). Ettridge was at the helm when the Wolves defeated the Hawks in 2011, and became a two-time champion in 2015 before being on the losing end in 2016 and 2017. Parsons came to the Hawks in 2017 after guiding the Cockburn Cougars to victory over Ettridge and the Wolves in 2016.

The Wolves finished the 2018 regular season in second place with a 21-5 record, while the Hawks finished in fourth place with an 18-8 record. While the Wolves battled for top spot on the ladder all season, the Hawks fell to a 6-8 record following a five-game loosing streak in May. In a mid-season turn around, the Hawks went on a 12-game winning streak behind the likes of Jacob Holmen, Ben Purser, Lochlan Cummings, Ryan Smith and Brian Carlwell. Rising star Mitch Clarke stepped into the starting point guard role in late June following a season-ending shoulder injury to veteran Daniel Thomas. With proven veterans Trian Iliadis, Seb Salinas, Damian Matacz and Robert Huntington, to go with imports Jalen Billups and Brian Sullivan, the Wolves once again cemented themselves as bonafide title contenders.

In their two meetings during the regular season, the series was split at 1-1, with both teams earning wins away from home. On 25 May, the Wolves defeated the Hawks 95-67 at Bendat Basketball Centre, with Billups top scoring for Joondalup with 32 points and Purser top scoring for Perry Lakes with 19 points. On 13 July at HBF Arena, the Hawks came away with a 106-104 overtime win behind Holmen's 38 points; Billups top scored for the Wolves with 29 points.

In the finals, the Wolves faced little resistance from the Willetton Tigers in the first round, sweeping the series 2-0 to move on to the Stirling Senators in the semi-finals. In a closer series, the Wolves still managed to sweep Stirling to reach their fourth consecutive grand final. In the Hawks' quarter-final series, they inflicted a heavy game one defeat on the Lakeside Lightning, before Lakeside levelled the series in game two. The Hawks went on to take game three to move on to the semi-finals, where they faced the Rockingham Flames. After losing Holmen to a season-ending knee injury early in the first quarter of game one, the Flames took advantage and stole the first game away from home, inflicting a 19-point loss on the Hawks. The Hawks recovered in game two in Rockingham behind Purser's season-high 29 points, levelling the series with game three at home. In a back-and-forth affair in the deciding game, the Hawks prevailed to advance to their first championship decider since 2011.

The 2011 SBL Grand Final saw the Wolves take out an 88-83 win over the Hawks. A number of players involved in that grand final are still active in their respective teams this year, including Damian Matacz, Rhys Smyth, Sean Easther and Seb Salinas from the Wolves, and Ben Purser and Josh Garlepp from the Hawks.

The fierce rivals will play each in the grand final for just the second time in the SBL's 30-year history.
