WILL THE BARRACUDAS SINK OR SWIM? - Dec 4, 2010

THE conclusion of each story seems so familiar at this point. It ends up as a loss in the end when the game goes down to the wire.

That is the story of the Brunei Barracudas thus far in the sophomore season of the Asean Basketball League (ABL).

Fours times already has it happened to Brunei's first professional team this season and their latest setback came in the hands of the Singapore Slingers with a 90-94 loss last Tuesday at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

The Barracudas had led most of the way in the match, only to crumble in the fourth quarter with poor execution down the stretch

Being one of the two teams in the six-team league that have played 10 games so far, Satria Muda BrtiAma being the other, the Barracudas now sit in fifth place with a 3-7 win-loss record.

The question now is whether the Barracudas have got what it takes to win their remaining games to stand a chance at qualifying for the playoffs come January?

Looking at the remainder of the 15-game season, the Bruneian side will next face the KL Dragons away at the MABA Stadium today at 4pm.

The Barracudas will be fired up to seek revenge for their 87-48 thrashing when the duo of American Chris Commons (204-F-84, college: USC Aiken) and Filipino Chester Tolomia (191-G-80) were unable to play due to red eye last month.

A fortnight later, they will host the Thailand Slammers at the Indoor Stadium of the Hassanal Bolkiah National Sports Complex on Dec 22 followed by Satria Muda on Jan 2 next year.

The Slammers will be a tough cookie as the Thai side have already won two against the Brunei outfit this season.

In contrast, they will welcome another tie with Satria Muda who the Brunei side have beaten twice.

They will then play the Slingers in another away game on Jan 9 before ending the regular season on Jan 15 as hosts to the Dragons.

Looking at the statistics, the Barracudas have failed to defeat the Singaporean team in five attempts. Will they end that skid against the Slingers this time? It will be another difficult job considering how strong the Slingers are at home.

The problem is that the team rely too heavily on their imports with only a six-man rotation which is similar to that of last season.

Unfortunately, the Barracudas finished with a 6-9 record that saw them edged out of the final playoffs spot then.

Will history be made or will it repeat itself? We'll just have to wait and see.
