A pair of Zags advanced to their respective league finals this week, as Jessie Loera and Geno Crandall will look for league championships across the pond. Gaps in other playoff series meant other game action was sparse, but the Zags that did play certainly made their presence felt.

Geno Crandall became the third Zag to advance to a league championship as Leicester swept Glasgow in the BBL semifinals. He had 22 points, four rebounds, and eight assists in the series clincher and is averaging 21.5 points during the postseason.
Jessie Loera and Nyon are tied 1-1 in the Swiss League finals after winning the opener and dropping Game 2. Loera led the way in Game One, scoring 30 points with five rebounds, nine assists, and four steals and shooting 11-13 from the foul line. She posted her second double-double of the playoffs in Game Two with 19 points and eleven rebounds.
