Lynx puzzle fall­ing into place

Stirling Times - - Sport -

HI EVERY­ONE! I’m back 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 off camp with the US na­tional team in Cal­i­for­nia.

Al­ready Court­ney has brought some real con­fi­dence and en­ergy to the group.

That brings me to our first game. The Red Army re­ally showed out with 779 peo­ple at the Ben­dat Bas­ket­ball Cen­tre on Sun­day for a 1pm start against last year’s cham­pi­ons Sydney.

The game started off very hot with both teams ex­chang­ing bas­kets in the in the first half.

Wil­liams was par­tic­u­larly strong with 18 first half points scor­ing 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 have a great chance to re­group as we are off to Ade­laide and Bendigo for two away games. This will give the team a good op­por­tu­nity to build chem­istry and hope­fully get a cou­ple of wins on the board.

You can watch Satur­day’s game against Bendigo live on Fox Sports 503 from noon.
