The VYC Cobra Men and Women are headed to the Big-V Playoffs this weekend.
Mark Landells’ Men will head to Dandenong on Saturday night to take on the Rangers (7pm), who own the league’s second best record at 18-4. The Cobras (14-8) draw the Rangers after finish fourth in the Watson Conference standings, falling short in a road thriller to Keilor last weekend to narrowly miss out on climbing into third. Though the Rangers enter as favourites on paper, the Cobras recorded a surprise win at Dandenong earlier this season, thanks to a 38 point explosion by Mitch Dielemans. Dielemans (28.6ppg/4.7apg) and Luke Rosendale (18.2ppg/6.7rpg/4.1apg)- winners of the VYC Player of the Month award for June and May, respectively – will be available for Saturday’s showdown, after missing a number of late season games with NBL1 commitments.
Claire Knight’s VYC Women travel to MSAC on Sunday to battle the Melbourne Tigers (10am), in a battle of #3 and #2 in the Watson and Terrill Conferences.

They’ll face the Terrill Conference’s second ranked Tigers, who enter the postseason with a 14-8 record. Kilsyth claimed the lone regular season battle between the two teams, dominating the Tigers on the road, 105-63, back in Round 6, but the Tigers enter the postseason in impressive form, having won three of their final four games.
