THE Joondalup Wolves have some breathing space in the men’s competition, but it’s do-or-die for the women in game two of the State Basketball League quarter-finals this weekend.

The Lady Wolfpack needs to win against Lakeside Lightning at Joondalup Basketball Stadium on Saturday to stay alive after dropping game one of the best of three series last week 76-58.

They will travel to Bibra Lake for the decider on Sunday if successful.

The men were victorious in game one against the Cockburn Cougars 90-83 and will advance to the semi-finals with a win at Wally Hagan Stadium tomorrow night.

Should the men lose, they will join the women’s team in Joondalup for game three on Saturday.

Trian Iliadis led scoring with 24 points in the game one clash, while US import Ryan Wright added 19 points.

The women’s contest had Shani Amos produce an impressive captain’s effort with 13 points, five rebounds and four assists.
