Bulls’ hopes based on de­fence

South Western Times - - Sport -

BULLS BBA women’s coach Matthew Ros­siter says a fo­cus on de­fence is re­spon­si­ble for his side’s un­beaten start to the sea­son.

The reigning cham­pi­ons have only con­ceded 101 points in the first two games and Ros­siter hopes to con­tinue that trend against Aces White to­mor­row night at the South West Sport Cen­tre.

“De­fence is what the Bulls have been known for over the years,” Ros­siter said.

“If we keep a team to 40 or 45 points we will win the game 90 per cent of the time.

“Our de­fence is our key and if we can catch the opposition on the fast break af­ter a turnover we nor­mally score.

“We also have a good spread of scor­ers so hope­fully that con­tin­ues.”

How­ever, Ros­siter said changes to the side since last year meant the club still had a lot to work on.

“We have got our main team from last year be­sides Ge­or­gia Dene­hey and Laura Jef­fery,” he said.

“We have added Bianca Dono­van who is a 150-game SBL player so we are a strong team still, but I am not sure if we are as strong as last year, time will tell.”

De­spite the strong start to the sea­son, Ros­siter is not tak­ing Aces White lightly.

“Amanda Fron­tino is a qual­ity player and she is lead­ing their scor­ing,” he said.

“They are also very well coached by Vlad Alava so there are no easy games this year.”

In the other match Bul­lets face Tor­na­does Red and Tor­na­does Black have the bye.
