The Arizona Thunderbirds wrapped up their second straight National West division championship, finishing twelve games ahead of the Seattle SeaDogs. The 56 total wins was the highest under current GM Nick Simpson's tenure with the Thunderbirds. Simpson seemed to be pleased with the team's performance during the regular season. "We had a rough patch during the middle of the season after (Mark) Marble went down," Simpson said after the last game. "But Coach Zaro did a good job of keeping the team together and once we were fully healthy we went on a good run. We're really playing some good basketball right now."

After Marble's return to the lineup, the Thunderbirds posted a 31-6 record to finish the regular season. Harry White commented on Marble's importance to the team: "We're just a different team with him in the lineup. He brings so much to us offensively and stretches the floor," White said. Even with the injury, Marble led the team in scoring, posting a career high 20.9 points per game during the regular season.

 

Winning the divison and posting 56 wins wasn't enough to obtain home court advantage in the National Confernce playoffs. The London Knights beat out the Thunderbirds for the number one seed in the NatCon by 6 games. The Thunderbirds will play the SeaDogs in the first round again after defeating them in 6 games last season. However, Coach Zaro isn't overlooking the SeaDogs. "They have a good team despite their record," Zaro told the press. "It's always a battle when these two teams go at it. We have to be ready for their best shot right away."
