The semi-final pairings of the Western Basketball Association's iCool/iDrade Elite Basketball League should be decided this weekend as the regular season comes to a close with a number of rescheduled games.

Defending champions Catherine Hall All-Stars, who lead with 38 points from 20 of their scheduled 21 games, and Granville Jaguars, who are on 34 points from 18 games, have already secured a place in the top four, while three other clubs are still in contention for the other two spots.

Holland Saints, who have three games to play, are in third place on 30 points from 18 games, followed by MoBay Hoopers on 27 points from 19 games, while Cricket Club Knights are on 26 points from 18 games.

Catherine Hall will complete their schedule today when they take on Lucea Flames in the first game of a double-header at Montego Bay Cricket Club starting at 6:15 pm, followed by Holland Saints against Cricket Club Knights in the 8:00 pm game.

There will be a triple-header on Saturday with Cricket Club Knights facing Hoopers in the first game set to start at 4:30 pm, followed by Muschett Falcons against Holland Saints in a Trelawny derby, while Lucea Flames and Granville Jaguars will meet in the final game

On Monday Cricket Club Knights and Inner-City Avalanche will meet in the first game of a double-header starting at 6:15 pm, which will be followed by Holland Saints vs Granville Jaguars.

Meanwhile, if necessary, the organisers will also reschedule two double-headers that were washed out on Tuesday when MoBay Hoopers were down to face Granville Jaguars and Muschett Falcons were up against Inner-City Avalanche.
