Lynx puzzle is falling into place
HI everyone! I’m here to update you on all things Lynx, including our first game against the Sydney Uni Flames.
It’s been a long two weeks for the team since our pre-season trip to Townsville.
We have been working very hard to put the final pieces in place to start the season.
Those final pieces include import Courtney Williams, who arrived last Wednesday fresh from a camp with the US national team in California, and has already brought some real confidence and energy to the group.
The Red Army really turned out on Sunday, with 779 people at the Bendat Basketball Centre for our game against last year’s champions, Sydney.
The game started off very hot, with both teams exchanging baskets in the first half.
Williams was particularly strong, with 18 first-half points scored in a variety of ways.
Despite trailing by only six at half-time, we were not able to contain the three-point shooting and rebounding from Sydney, who pulled away to win, 92-80.
This week we are off to Adelaide and Bendigo for two away games, and to hopefully get a couple of wins on the board.
You can watch Saturday’s game against Bendigo live on Fox Sports 503 from noon.
