Can the Gold Coast Waves complete the season double or can the Southern Districts Spartans complete an impressive bounce back after missing out at the State Championships?

The Waves have been dominant this season and already have a state title under their belt after beating Mackay in January and go into the grand final on the back of a 40-point win over Logan in the semi-final.

While the Spartans, who missed out at the State Championships finishing in fifth place, have been in red hot form in the second half of the season which was capped off with a semi-final victory over South West Metro.

Some young NBL1 talents are set to go head-to-head as the Logan Thunder and Sunshine Coast Phoenix clash in what will be an epic grand final to complete the under-21 mens season.

The Thunder, who finished the regular season in first place losing just one game, will be led by NBL1 guard Boston Mazlin as well as Tall Black Tane Kirisome as Logan look to win the under-21s double after the women won the title in December.

But the Phoenix head into the game riding a wave of momentum after upsetting local rivals, the University of Sunshine Coast Rip City, by one point in last week's semi-final.

Big man Oscar Kluff will headline the Phoenix side, which also features a bunch of young talent on the rise.
