The semifinals of the Colombian Professional Basketball League 2017 are ready to start, two playoffs to the best in 3 games, with the first game at the worst record home and the last two at the home of the best regular season record
.
FastBreak fom Valle del Cauca, was dominant achieving the first seed and home court advantage in the playoffs, their roster was by far the best in the competition, with good ball handlers In Crockrell, Ceter and Salazar, prodigious scorers in Ortiz, Uhegwu and Sneed and intimidators in the painting like Julio and Hinestroza, have had the second offensive during the regular phase with a scoring efficiency of 43% ,and the best defense allowing only 39% of the points that their opponents could score, Ortiz, Sneed, Uhegwu and Julio are their main players.

Academia de la Montana finished the regular season in second place, far from the leader, 9 points behind , a big gap, , Academia had ups and downs during the regular season, specially because the injuries of its main players , Divier Perez and Beyckar Aguaslimpias missed 14 games, Murray and Balbuena 6 games both, as was expected the greatest strength of the Academy is its interior game as its Colombian post up players lead all the front lines of the League with 18 rebounds and 3 blocks per game, another very positive stat: more than 50% of their points comes from assists, Murray and Granados were ranked 1 and 6 in this statistical section, its most important players: Perez, Murray, Aguaslimpias and Granados.

Cimarrones were ranked third, paying the price of two forfeits that limited their rank, sanctioned with forfeits for not having their gym available for the games against FastBreak and largely due to the injuries of his main point guards: Moreno and Caicedo (9 games without at least one of them), besides the low level of two of the initial imports Canty and Williams that did not fulfill the expectations, The arrival of Venezuelan forward Jose Rodriguez, one of the revelations of the Venezuelan League this year, improved the team game , the Chocoanos were the quintet that received fewer points per game in the elimination phase, and the team with better average In triples with a 34% , however its low percentage from the free throw 59% and o2FG: 47% limited its offensive efficiency to just 42,5% lowest among the 4 semifinalists, their most important players are: Amir Carraway, Jose Rodriguez, Juan Hernandez, Edgar Moreno and Eleutherio Renteria.

Condores were ranked fourth, living the paradox of having the best offensive efficiency as they materialize almost 45% of the points they try, and the worst defensive efficiency allowing their rivals to convert 43% of possible points, paying the price of having in Lamar Roberson its best scorer but at the same time its worst defensive player, also have played giving a handicap since two of the foreigners: Dyer and Morgan do not show the level to be competitive; Ryan Mccoy, Luis Almanza (mr. Double-double), Lamar Roberson and Pichi Torres are their most important players, Mccoy and Roberson are the couple that most three pointers score in the league.

Looking at each playoff FastBreak is big favorite to sweep to Condores, in the preliminary round defeated Condores in the four games by a margin of 15 points, and in two of those games left them below 65 pts, limiting them to its lower percentage of three pointers, Condores may have some hope, the regulation allows the change the imports at any time, and Condores sent Sean Morgan back home and bring in the veteran Juan Herrera who can have a positive impact in the Condores performance.

The series between Academia and Cimarrones looks very even, each team swept the other as local in the previous confrontations, in its victories Cimarrones averaged 74 pts per game including 104 in the second one that was disputed in Quibdo, Academia barely average 63 pts in the 4 games Including 67 in the victories as a local, Cimarrones has in the trio Hernandez, Rodriguez and Arboleda size and weight to face Perez and Aguaslimpias, but Academia still has a wild card under the sleeve: may include a third foreigner, if the player is properly selected, a stretch 4 scorer, can change the balance of the series.
