Kai Sotto will get a feel for the National Basketball League-Australia game when Adelaide takes part in the league’s Hungry Jack’s Blitz preseason tourney.
From November 14-28, the 36ers will be in Tasmania. They will face hosts JackJumpers along with Brisbane, New Zealand, Perth, and Cairns.
Games will take place in Hobart, Launceston, Ulverstone, and Kingborough.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be returning to Tasmania on November 14 for another Hungry Jack’s NBL Blitz,” league commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said.
“The NBL is very grateful of the Tasmanian Government and Premier Peter Gutwein, once again rolling out the welcome mat for our teams.”
On the other hand, the other teams will play their pre-season games across Victoria and New South Wales.
The format of the tournament will be unique.
Each team across all three states will play at least four games. A points system will determine the winner of the preseason tournament.
All games are worth a maximum of seven points, with three points going to to the winning team, plus an additional point awarded to the side that wins each quarter. In the event a quarter ends tied, both teams receive half of a point. If a game goes into overtime, no additional points are awarded.
The winner will receive the Loggins-Bruton Cup. Meanwhile, the tournament’s most outstanding player will win the Ray Borner Medal.
