The Premier Basketball League (PBL) regular season has drawn to a close. Only four teams remain as they prepare to take home the PBL National Championship. The remaining four include the Rochester RazorSharks (16-2), Ohio Bootleggers (12-6), Jamestown Jackals (6-10), and our very own Kentucky Mavericks (15-3).

At the other tournament site, the Rochester RazorSharks will host the Jamestown Jackals at 2pm the same day. The winners of these two contests will then face off in a three game series. The times and dates of these contests will be determined by the outcome of the said games. The PBL will make an announcement of the times and dates of the Finals series on Monday, April 3.
