After a really competitive 2017 Malcolm Guishard Memorial Basketball league, it has come down to just one more crucial match.
The two top teams: Defending champions and home team, CG Massives and multiple times champions, CG Rebels, have faced off twice in the best of three finals and each team has won one game.
