With the Gold Coast Blaze removing themselves from the NBL competition recently, the league has produced a new 8-team schedule for the upcoming season.

For Melbourne, the schedule remains just as tough as it was before the alteration as the Tigers travel to Adelaide in Round 1 before backing it up with a trip to Sydney just five days later.
Melbourne’s next two games are at home (at a venue yet to be confirmed) however they will be against the ever-powerful Perth Wildcats, followed by the reigning champion New Zealand Breakers in Round 4.
With some new faces soon to be announced, priority number one will be team chemistry as there’s no “warm up” time in this schedule.
It’s getting closer… to season 2012/13!
