WEL­COME back for an­other Lynx up­date.

With no road trip this week, the team was able to get some much-needed rest along with some tough train­ing ses­sions in the lead-up to our game against Townsville.

It was a great week for my­self per­son­ally as, af­ter se­ries of ap­point­ments on Tues­day, I was cleared to take off my splint and start re­hab­bing my wrist.

This means I am one step closer to join­ing my team­mates back on the court, which is par­tic­u­larly ex­cit­ing given the style of bas­ket­ball we are beginning to dis­play.

That brings us to the game against Townsville.

To start the game, the girls put to­gether their best quar­ter of the sea­son, burst­ing out of the gates to take a 29-10 lead.

We spent a lot of time dur­ing the week pre­par­ing for the prob­lems Townsville’s post play­ers, Suzi Batkovic and Cayla Ge­orge, posed. In the first quar­ter the girls did a great job lim­it­ing their op­por­tu­ni­ties while also run­ning Townsville’s perime­ter shoot­ers off the three-point line.

As the game wore on, the girls re­sponded to each of Townsville’s runs, even­tu­ally winning 87-68.

It was again a great team per­for­mance with Alice Kunek a stand­out, scor­ing 25 points in­clud­ing five three-point­ers.

We are home again this week on Satur­day at the Ben­dat Bas­ket­ball Cen­tre at 6.30pm to play the Can­berra Cap­i­tals. Can­berra will be hun­gry, look­ing to snap a streak of losses, so it is bound to be a tough con­test.
