With three weeks left in the BIG3’s inaugural regular season, the playoffs are starting to come into focus. The second half of the season began Sunday in Chicago, in front of a sold-out crowd at UIC Pavilion. When the smoke cleared, four teams emerged as strong playoff contenders.
One team became the first ever to clinch a playoff berth, as the undefeated Trilogy punched its ticket for the postseason, which begins Aug. 20 in Seattle. Four teams have winning records and the other four all find themselves with identical 1-4 records. All of those teams are still alive for a playoff spot, but they’ve got some work to do.
