The East Coast Basketball League (ECBL) began it inaugural season in March of 2015. Ten teams in two divisions made their way through the regular season and division playoffs. Now just two teams remain: Fayetteville Crossover will face PrimeTime Players in first-ever ECBL Championship.
Northern Division champion Fayetteville (12-2) lost just once to a division foe before cruising through the playoffs to earn their spot. The Crossover defeated the Carolina Gladiators (139-136) in the division semifinals before being crowned Northern winners. High Point Heat were to meet Fayetteville in the division final, but travel issues forced the Heat to forfeit.
PrimeTime (14-0) are looking to finish their season as undefeated champs. With victories over Fort Gordon Eagles (144-115) and South Carolina All-Stars (133-114) in the Southern Division playoffs, PrimeTime are looking for their fourth league title in four years. PrimeTime were winners of the Tobacco Road Basketball League from 2012-14.
The ECBL championship game is scheduled for Saturday, June 27 at 5:00 PM (ET). It will be played at Banks Street Gym in Fort Mills, SC. The game will also stream live via the ECBL YouTube channel.
