Eight teams were cut to four on Saturday for the state league men's and women's semi-finals at Launceston's Elphin Sports Centre.
The Basketball Tasmania High Performance team were once again felled by the Wynyard Wildcats in an upset for the day's first game.
The Wildcats proved to be the HP team's Achilles heel earlier this season, beating them 59-46 in what would be the former's only loss of the season.
Wynyard would have the HP team's number once again on Saturday, downing them 73-64.
Once again it was Wildcat D'Asia Chambers (29 pts) who haunted the first-seed HP, with her toughness and agility in transition proving too much to be countered.
Elsewhere in sport:
Despite Launceston's team in the Lightning falling short of the finals, the host city's Makala Bingley (8 pts) would be a standout on defence for the HP team.
The Wildcats will face the second-seed Penguin Blues in the grand final, after they dispatched the Burnie Tigers 67-58.
In the men's finals the top-seeded Penguin Blues showed dominance against the KHBA Kings, winning 101-65.
They'll play the Glenorchy Spartans, who would take down the Hobart Phoenix by five points in the day's final game.
The grand finals for both the women's and men's competitions will be played at the Elphin Sports Centre on Sunday.
