As it stands, the Stars sit seventh on the ladder but could still qualify for the BBL Finals with a win in the final game of the regular season.
The equation for finals qualification will not be known until the completion of the first match of the MCG double-header, where Melbourne Renegades take on Hobart Hurricanes, starting at 3.50pm.
Ticket sales are now exhausted for the double-header.
