The S&K Geraldton Buccaneers' State Basketball League grand final hopes have been dashed.

The Joondalup Wolves ended the Buccs' promising season today with a 93 to 81 point semifinal victory at Joondalup Basketball Stadium.

The win was the Wolves’ second in a best of three semifinal series.

The Buccs were neck and neck with the Wolves until half-time, with the visitors going into the break with a one-point lead.

But the Wolves broke the game open in the third period, scoring 31 to the Buccs 21, and winning the final period by three points.

Dwayne Benjamin led the scoring for the Buccs with 21 points, followed by Matt Hancock, Jackson Hussey and Mo Barrow with 15 points each.
