We must be in it for four quarters

played by the home side.

How­ever, again the Waves could not con­tinue this style for the re­main­der of the game. Vet­er­ans Kelsey Grif­fin (28pts, 11reb) and Belinda Snell (17pts, 5ass) led the way for the Spirit.

The first quar­ter saw the Waves put to­gether some great of­fen­sive ex­e­cu­tion, along­side solid de­fen­sive plays.

But the Bendigo Spirit promptly put a stop to that for the re­main­ing three quarters, push­ing the Waves out of their of­fence and pun­ish­ing them down the de­fen­sive end.

For the Waves, it was good to see young Darcee Garbin putting to­gether some ag­gres­sive plays, fin­ish­ing with 14 points, 7 re­bounds and 2 steals.

Cassie Har­berts was again solid (5pts, 11reb), and young Isa Bran­cati­sano got into the game and scored her first WNBL points.

The Waves will hope­fully put Louella Tom­lin­son back into the mix next week from an an­kle in­jury, as she con­tin­ues to im­prove each week.

We are on the road next week on a tough road dou­ble against Dan­de­nong and Ade­laide, two games that are winnable for the group.

How­ever, its go­ing to take four quarters of solid bas­ket­ball to get the job done, some­thing the Waves have strug­gled with in the sec­ond half of this sea­son.
