SBC SM 2016-17 SEASON REVIEW – TUBPODCAST

The 2016-17 Senior Men’s SBC unearthed many story lines, capped with Fury securing the treble with victory in the Play-Off Final.

Here’s how we remember the year.


Falkirk Fury (16-2) dominated the season, losing only twice all campaign, sweeping Cup, League and Play-Off honours.

St Mirren West College (15-3) challenged for the league title behind one of the SBC’s most potent offences.

Boroughmuir Blaze (14-4) a force across all competitions, Blaze collected runners-up honours in the Cup and Play-Offs.

City Of Edinburgh (13-5) a solid league campaign was somewhat soured by a disappointing first round post-season exit.

Glasgow Storm (9-9) competitive during the regular season, Storm shocked many in the post-season with victory over Kings.

Stirling Knights (7-11) struggled to score the ball but finished the season in fine form, going 4-1 down the stretch.

Edinburgh University (6-12) enjoyed a winning start to the season before finishing in disastrous fashion, losing their final 8 league games.

Dunfermline Reign (6-12) struggled defensively, but secured a play-off berth thanks to reliable offensive output.

Glasgow University (4-14) endured a rough season, having lost many of last year’s key contributors.

Tayside Musketeers (0-18) withdrew from competition mid-way through the season, resulting in the forfeiture of their fixtures.

Cup Final

Falkirk Fury 59-54 Boroughmuir Blaze

An unexpectedly tense finish ensured a dramatic Cup Final, as seemingly comfortable Fury were forced to withstand a staggering Blaze comeback that saw Boroughmuir overturn a 17 point deficit to  have a shot a tying the game in the final seconds. The attempt came up short and a technical foul called on Blaze sealed Fury’s victory.


Play-Off Final

Falkirk Fury 95-75 Boroughmuir Blaze

Fury seized the game’s momentum late in the second quarter, thanks to a pair of Eddy Leginas triples, to create a double-digit advantage from which Blaze would never recover. The side from Falkirk kept Blaze at arm’s length, over the final 20 minutes, to crown an impressive season – their second SBC triple in the last 3 years.

Eddy Leginas was named MVP (30 points, 9 threes).
