The Cobras were impressive last week in their 101-81 road win over arch nemesis the Bendigo Braves. With Chris Cameron (30pts, 10 rbds) Joe Werner (19pts, 19rbds) and Quincy Henderson (15pts, 11rbds) leading the way the Cobras proved difficult to guard. This week they take on the high scoring Brisbane Spartans. Brisbane opened their 2009 SEABL Season at home last weekend against the Canberra Gunners and recorded a 126-123 overtime victory.
Leading the way for Brisbane was Kilsyth Cobras junior player Ash Cannan who finished with 23pts and 11rbds. With a swag of NBL talent the Bruce Palmer coached Spartans will provide a solid test for the Cobras.
Kilsyth will need their dynamic duo of Chris Cameron and Joe Werner to lead the way but former Spartan Gerard Leonard will be looking for a big game against his former side. The Cobras will need Leonard to be a threat from the perimeter to provide the space inside.
The game is scheduled to tip off at 8.15pm and will be precluded by the Development League men at 6.15pm as they take on the Bendigo Braves.
The reigning Champion Swinburne Lady Cobras will be after their first win of the 2009 season as they travel to Ballarat to take on the new look Lady Miners. Without young stars Sarah Parsons and Clare Papavs the Lady Cobras went down at Bendigo 82-67 last weekend. There was some great positives to be taken out of the game and Coach Jason Knight will be keen to exploit these against Ballarat. Lady Cobras Import Amy Denson had 19pts and 13 rbds despite an injured ankle and Gemma Kerr hit 17.
The Lady Cobras go up against an inform Lady Miners who took care of last years finalist Nunawading last weekend 71-44. Nunawading were missing their WNBL players but it was still a big first up win for the Lady Miners. Coach Jason Knight will have two objectives in this game, to shut down Cayla Francis and Amy Lewis. If the Lady Cobras are able to contain the Lady Miners WNBL stars then they should be able to record the victory.
Kilsyth travel to Ballarat on Sunday for a 2.00pm game at the Minerdown. The Lady Cobras tip off at home on Sunday 5 April at Launceston at 12.00pm
