Southern Basketball League Round 10 Previews
The SBL men’s game of the week features unbeaten Phoenix (9-0) and fourth placed Breakers (4-5). Corey Davie has been the leagues dominant inside presence this year and will be the key to Phoenix sweeping the first ten rounds at the season half-way point. Swingman John Beattie has also been in fine touch for Phoenix. Deba George and BJ Radcliffe will lead Breakers, who will also look for outside support from veteran Boyd Heather.
Chargers imports Jordan Gregg and Brandon Polk hit the court as opponents as Wellington (4-5) and Clarence (4-5) face off. Gregg has been blistering in all statistical categories and presents a tough match up for any defender. Clarence will need to find a way disguise its lack of a pure point guard and consistent outside threat without Anthony Stewart.
The final men’s game has second placed Kingston (5-4) aiming to secure its recent ladder rise against Grenadiers (1-8). Grenadiers will be buoyed by its first win for the year last week, however will need to look after the ball and score at a high percentage to have a chance this week.
In the women’s premier league game of the week, Wellington (3-4) and Clarence (2-5) battle for third and fourth place on the ladder. After a slow start to the year Clarence is now playing to its potential and would love to leapfrog Wellington into third place. Expect Clarence to come out of the blocks hard to try and establish an early lead.
Phoenix (5-2) goes head-to-head with Breakers (1-6) in the other women’s game this week. Phoenix continues to follow the lead of centre and rebounding-machine Kylie McCauley, who is also an early MVP contender over the first nine rounds. Breakers will need to shoot well and control the tempo of this game given its lack of depth in its debut season.
