After what is sure to be a tough night of basketball on Saturday for both the Swinburne Cobras and the Nunawading Specters, they both face of in the SEABL game of the round on Sunday afternoon.
Nunawading (10-4) have been clearly the best team in the south conference but it has been said that if the ‘bad’ Nunawading turn up then anyone can beat them, however when the ‘good’ Nunawading turn up to play there are not many sides that worry them. Last week saw the Specters defeat Ballarat by nine points with Chris Cameron (24pts) and Simon Conn (21pts) dominating the scoring.
Kilsyth will be looking to finish the weekend on a high after what will be a huge game against Ballarat at home on Saturday night. They will be looking to their big men, Auryn McMillan (12.9ppg, 6.8rpg) and Tim Lang (15.9ppg, 9.8rpg) to counter Nunawading’s combination of Cameron (16.4ppg, 5.6rpg), Conn (15.6ppg, 8.3rpg) and Williams (13ppg, 6.8rpg).
Kilsyth have certainly gained a lot self-belief after only dropping one game from the past eight after their horror start to the year combined with the form of Matt O’Hea and Zach Malvik out of their three point defeat of Sandringham last week will ensure that come Sunday afternoon the crowd will be in for one of the most enthralling contest of the year.
The Swinburne Cobras tip off against the Nunawading Specters at 2.30pm Sunday June 18 at Nunawading Basketball Stadium.
