The men�s side continues to lead the league, having held top spot for the past five weeks.

The women�s team had slipped to fourth in the past fortnight after conceding third position to Mandurah.

But the Wolves stole back the spot after defeating the Magic 79-71 away last Friday.

Rebecca Mercer led scoring with 21 points as Ellyce Ironmonger took nine rebounds.

Mandurah outdid the Wolves by six points in the last quarter but Joondalup had done enough to secure an eight-point win.

In the men�s contest, the Wolves, leading by just two points heading into the final period, pulled away to a 113-99 triumph over the fifth-placed Magic.

Trian Iliadis impressed with 38 points, shooting at a damaging 8-16 from the three-point line, while equalling a team-high seven assists with Joel Questel.

US import Kevin Davis filled the stats sheet with three blocks, three assists, three steals, 12 rebounds and 22 points.

Joondalup travels to Geraldton this weekend in a top-two battle with the Buccaneers.
