Following this weekend's senior semi-finals, the full list of teams is now confirmed for next month's showpiece event at the University of Essex.
22 points from American Travis Charles helped Team Solent Kestrels past defending champions Loughborough Riders 86-70, ensuring there will be a different name on the prestigious National Cup in 2019/20.
In the other semi-final, Division Two's Myerscough College couldn't claim a third straight top flight scalp as part of their impressive Cup run, eventually falling to a Nick Richards inspired Reading Rockets 77-58.
Unfortunately for the Rockets, it wasn't to be double delight on the weekend as their women's team lost on the road in Nottingham, with Trent University sealing a 71-65 victory. It'll be Nottingham's first ever appearance in the National Cup final, a worthy reward for a side that has only been in the NBL since 2016/17.
NTU will take on reigning D1W playoff champions Anglia Ruskin University after the Rhinos stole a dramatic road win against Bristol Flyers, coming out on top 66-65 after a period of OT. A 26-12 3rd quarter put the hosts firmly in control, only to see their opponents come roaring back for a famous victory.
All four senior sides join a junior line up packed with potential for some exciting match ups, with Richmond Knights, London Youngblood Lionesses, Team Solent Kestrels, Manchester Magic, Reading Rockets, Ipswich, Haringey Hawks and Myerscough College all stamping their ticket to next month's finals!
