    Lots of games to start the new year and decade had teams on both sides of the wins reach 100+. Not a lot of major blowouts here. One game got stopped involving the Chicago Angels winning. And a forfeit. The Southwest Warriors-North Alabama War Dawgs game went to double overtime (144-143). OC Novastars over XvsX All Stars, 135-128 OT. The Philadelphia-Pittsburgh rivalry had the Steel City come out of top in the Steel City Yellow Jackets over Philadelphia Cannons 152-130:

    Hi guys,

    This is my first post here since the Coronavirus pandemic started to strike severely here in the USA that restricted a LOT of things I want to do like writing here. With some time restrictions here at the library, where I get my Internet access that I sorely miss in the previous three months, I can write for now only brief things and news. This will be my only one for the day. To start with here...

    The ABA, NBL Canada, and the TBL have all cancelled the remainder of their 2019-20 regular seasons and playoffs, as you perhaps expected. So that means no champions crowned this March-April in these leagues.

    The second year Canadian Elite Basketball League, monitoring all the developments in the sports world closely involving the COVID-19, at first postponed their regular season with newcomers Ottawa that was originally set for May 7 and delayed to June. Now it appears its 2020 season status is narrowed to just playing a 7-team multiweek tournament at Niagara inside the Meridian Centre. Date TBD:

    The CEBL takes up a page from the NBA, NHL, MLS, and NWSL as it becomes the first Canadian pro sports league to open up this summer ahead of the CFL and Canadian Premier League with its own bubble for all seven of its teams at St. Catherines, Ontario's Meridian Centre, the home of the Niagara River Lions, from July 15 to play the CEBL Summer Series, a round robin competition that will culminate in crowning the second-year league’s 2020 champion. Round robin tourney is from July 25 to August for 26 games with the top six seeded for advancement. Seventh place team after the round robin tournament is eliminated:

    Moncton Magic once again had the best record in NBL Canada at 19-4 before the cancellation. In the The Basketball League, it was really the Indy Express at 9-2 tops there although the Dallas Skyline also have 9 wins too but with 4 losses. More details soon.
    Jusqui'ici tout va bien...
