Launceston could be the missing piece of the puzzle towards a Tasmanian team entering the NBL within the next three years.
Club owner Justin Hickey was behind the move of the Silverdome being handed a larger share of home games over Hobart in the inaugural year of the Southern Huskies.
Launceston-based assistant coach Brett Smith had a small part portraying the North's basketball landscape.
"The owners had decided to show their support to the whole state that includes the North-West," Smith said.
"By having more games in Launceston, which is more central to everyone, it does allow us to showcase more basketball statewide.
"Hopefully that will be the case next year and if we talk with our feet and support, come NBL time Launceston will have more games."
That could include a dress rehearsal for the next round of NBL expansion following the admission of South East Melbourne Phoenix this year.
Smith hopes the first year of a five-year licence in the New Zealand NBL is a forerunner of the state's return.
The Huskies have learned lessons from the ex-Hobart Tassie Devils, who dissolved in 1996 after 14 NBL seasons.
"They are watching us," Smith said of the NBL.
"We have spoken to Larry Kestelman of the NBL, and there are a few boxes to tick.
"One of them is game support, another is the team being competitive and also the branding and how successful our model is.
"But all of that is going to come from crowd support."
