SBL: Kalamunda Suns face tough Lakeside clash

SBL: Kalamunda Suns face tough Lakeside clash

THE Kalamunda men’s and women’s teams are both looking to prevent a run of three straight losses heading into their State Basketball League clashes against Lakeside Lightning tonight.

The teams are coming off back-to-back defeats after losing to Perry Lakes in Northam on Saturday.

The Hawks outdid the men 97-96 and overcame the women 84-67.

The Suns men, who are second-last on the table, have three games remaining and are still at risk of becoming the 2016 wooden spooners.

They are two games clear of Mandurah, but the Magic have an extra game in hand.

The 10th-placed women remain a mathematical chance of making the final eight but would need to win their last three games and hope the teams above them collapse.

They face a tough task against the third-placed Lightning, while the men’s challenge could be a little easier against their 10th-placed opposition at Ray Owen Sports Centre.
