The inaugural Big Basket Basketball League is set to jump off in November with 10 of this country’s biggest basketball teams. With sports recently reopening, after its closure due to the covid-19 pandemic, basketball is set to be in for a time.

As the name suggests, the Big Basketball League will be the biggest privately run league, sanctioned by the National Basketball Federation of Trinidad and Tobago.

The League will see 10 teams divided into 2 conferences, with each of the 10 teams playing each other once. The top 2 teams in each of the conferences will square off for the conference’s best of 5 finals. The conference winners will then play in the best of 7 finals.

Some of the features of the League include 12 minutes duration of the quarters instead of 10 minutes and the All-Star Weekend at the end of the regular season where the fans will determine who plays in the All-Star Game. There will also be a reward for the team with the noisiest and best supporters.

Families will be encouraged to come out in their numbers on Christmas day and on New Years’ day as some mouth-watering fixtures will await basketball lovers. Fans and supporters can keep up with the tournament on to check fixtures, results, and stories, as well as vote for the All-Star starters and the MVP.

All 45 regular season games will be streamed live in addition to the playoffs. Fixtures will be released as soon as all the teams confirm participation.

The League is expected to begin on the first Friday in November with games on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays until the playoffs.
