After what has been the longest ever preseason in the history of the NBL, we find ourselves here at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on this Friday night to witness the Adelaide 36ers take on championship favourites, Melbourne United.
The last time the Adelaide 36ers played in front of their fans at AEC Arena was way back on February 15 last year. And they now embark on their 2021 season in front of a 75% capacity arena with a new look team which is young and exciting giving the 36ers faithful optimism for a return to finals. The 36ers also have a new coach at the helm, Connor Henry.
Melbourne United arrive to Adelaide to commence their 2021 season with a talented roster which includes the addition of superstar import Scotty Hopson, and NBA prospect, Jock Landale.
Let’s bring it on!
