Driving home our advantage
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.
