The undefeated Rochester RazorSharks (15-0) will look to defend their 2014 PBL Championship title when they head west to take on the Lake Michigan Admirals (12-4), who are making their first appearance in the PBL Finals in their fourth year in the league.
The Admirals are coming off their best regular season performance since joining the PBL. Not only is it their first season above .500 (their previous best was last season at 6-12) but with a strong 12-4 record, they were able to claim their first ever PBL Midwest division championship.
The four-time defending PBL champion RazorSharks have a perfect 11-0 record against the Admirals in the three seasons previous to this year (they did not meet in the regular season this year for the first time), however, this is the strongest team that the Admirals have ever had.
