Bulls see Tor­na­does Red in top-of-the ta­ble clash

South Western Times - - Sport -

Bulls and Tor­na­does Red meet in a top-of-the-ta­ble Bun­bury Basketball As­so­ci­a­tion se­nior men’s clash to­mor­row night at the South West Sports Cen­tre.

The reign­ing cham­pi­ons Bulls — who have been in blis­ter­ing form to start the sea­son — have been equally im­pres­sive across both of­fence and de­fence.

Both mar­gins of vic­tory have been in ex­cess of 42 points and if Red are to cause a boilover, they are go­ing to have to put the brakes on Travis Durnin, who is al­ready av­er­ag­ing 28.5 points per game this sea­son.

Red have de­feated as­so­ci­a­tion new­com­ers Duns­bor­ough Oil­ers and Ea­ton Ea­gles over the past fort­night, with to­mor­row night ar­guably a true re­flec­tion on how they stack up against a peren­nial su­per­power.

Tor­na­does Black, who have only suited up once this sea­son, can also re­main un­de­feated if they over­come a spir­ited Oil­ers team.

Af­ter a cred­i­ble de­but loss against Aces Sky, the Duns­bor­ough-based out­fit took an­other step for­ward last week and could be primed for a maiden vic­tory.

The Oil­ers, who did se­cure a maiden A-Women vic­tory last week, take on fel­low .500 team Tor­na­does Red.

A huge fo­cal point of the Oil­ers’ of­fence has been the com­bi­na­tion of Adele and Dana East — some­thing which the Red de­fend­ers will need to keep in mind when lock­ing down the key­way.

In the re­main­ing game of the round, win­less Aces Sky host un­beaten Tor­na­does Black.

It’s been a chal­leng­ing start to the sea­son for Sky, who are cur­rently the only side yet to win a game.

Black, who are rid­ing high on top of the lad­der, put their foot on the gas in Fri­day’s vic­tory over sis­ter side Tor­na­does Red — go­ing on a dom­i­neer­ing 26-0 run in the fi­nal five and a half min­utes of play.
