Macca’s Week Ten Picks

Another week of games at Level Two, so no uninvited spectators to any games. As usual, we will update this article with live stream links.

It’s playoff time in the #MaccasTT Division I competition! The Whelan Division I Semi-Final seedings need finalising tonight too.

Because of there being no open entry at any of the basketball games this week (starting 7 September), we will endeavour to post any live stream links for the games tonight as we become aware of them.
