Backing up after defeating Knox on Saturday night, the Swinburne Cobras showed no signs of fatigue restricting the Bandits to 3/20 shooting in the opening term to build a 15-10 lead at the first break.
Tim Lang (16pts, 9 rbds) was again outstanding, with the early signs looking as though it could be a break out season for the Stetson University graduate.
Matt O’Hea (14pts, 4/6 3pt) sparked a 12-0 run to start the second term as the Swinburne Cobras outscored Albury 27-9 to take a 23 point lead into the long break.
Fernandez Lockett (13pts, 11rbds), Ryan Bathie (10pts, 5rbds) and Quincy Henderson (8pts, 9 rbds) all made solid contributions towards the Swinburne Cobras lead which swelled to 29 at the final change.
Nick Payne (11pts) and Ryan Bright (10pts, 13rbds) did all they could to get Albury into the game but the Swinburne Cobras defence was suffocating, restricting the Bandits to 26% shooting from the field.
Neither team could build a run in the final term as Kilsyth played out a 29 point win. Kilsyth shot at 42% from the field and out rebounded the Bandits 46-43.
The Swinburne Cobras 3-1 record to open the Season is their best start in recent memory and includes quality wins on the road against Hobart and Knox.
The next test for Kilsyth will be a match up against the Brisbane Spartans (2-0) at home on Saturday 27 March 2010 at 8.15pm.
