Hello Everyone.

I am posting this in here as I can find any answers in FIBA rules books.

I am coaching a young team which is playing in Division 3.
The season has now finished and situation is as fallows:

Division3 GP W T L PF PA Pts
TEAM Y 15 11 0 4 533 383 150 26
TEAM X 15 11 0 4 476 425 51 26


My team is TEAM X.

Aa you can see the amount of point is equal but they have scored more and had less points against them during the entire season.
However in the games between those two teams we came as winners 2 out of 3 times.

My question is who is the winner of the league?
Is it more important who scored how many? Or maybe more important are games between those teams?

Please let me know.

It really depends what tie breakers your league uses. If point differential is a tie breaker, then yes, it matters.

I spoke with the president of our Association and he said that we fallow FIBA rules...

I start to think he has no idea what to do.

Anyway thank you for replying.

In Greece I can assure you that 'result between teams' is what decides these. But that's because it's the Greek system. There's no such thing as FIBA rules when we're talking about this.

You can tell him that FIBA tournaments use 'results between teams' as well. Both FIBA World Championship and the EuroBasket. You can search 2006 and 2010 FIBA World Championship on wikipedia or EuroBasket 2011, 2009 and 2007, there are examples of that, but of course it's single games there. In competitions with return legs, a 1-1 tie breaker is won by the team with the best point difference in the games between, i.e team A wins 109-102, team B wins 109-105, therefore Team A is ranked above Team B.

In Spain they use the Points Difference system as far as I know.
