The Bulls' two wins so far in March against West Suffolk Wolves and Team Solent Kestrels II have made them impossible to catch in the South, with the weekend’s 76-51 road win at Solent confirming them as champions.
Their impressive 11-1 record has given the Bulls a four point cushion over West Herts Warriors (9-3) and Team Solent Kestrels II (9-4), and although the Warriors could still pull level with Brent should results go their way, the Bulls own the head-to-head tiebreaker between the two sides.
That means the league winners can look forward to the potential for D1 basketball next season, and testing themselves against some of the best teams in the country.
In the North, Stockport Lapwings (14-1), with memories of their National Cup Final win still fresh, can't be caught at the head of the table after a perfect 2022 so far.
Manchester Magic (17-3) edge ever-closer to the D2 Men’s North title.
Though mathematically possible, it seems unlikely that joint-second place side Northamptonshire Titans (14-5) will catch the former D1M winners, with Doncaster Eagles (14-7) also joint second but out of the running.
It would take Magic losing their final two games, the Titans winning all three of theirs, plus the clash between the two sides on 20 March going the way of Northamptonshire by 14 points or more.
It means the North West side can claim top spot this weekend with a win over Team Birmingham, or a loss for the Titans against seventh place Nottingham Hoods.
Westminster Warriors (19-0) capped a remarkable season by clinching the Division Two South title last month.
The Warriors are still yet to taste defeat this year, with no drop off in form once they were confirmed as league winners. They have three more games to navigate (home and away vs Ipswich, and away to East London All Stars) to seal their perfect regular season.
NBL Division Three
Lions’ February win over Mohawks has proved to be vital, taking the season series 2-1 and allowing Teesside to seal top spot with room to spare.
In the South, London Elite (8-0) have dominate the division and are out of reach, while Bristol (10-1) can't be caught in the South West.
