SBL: Joondalup Wolves look for seven straight in double-header weekend

KALGOORLIE last weekend and Rockingham this Friday; the long road trips continue for the Joondalup Wolves but the wins don’t look like stopping.

The sixth-placed Flames, on a two-game losing run, have a big challenge ahead to beat the Wolves at the Mike Barnett Sports Complex.

Joondalup will look to increase a five-game winning streak to six.

Should the Wolves make it to six, they’ll be playing for seven against the East Perth Eagles on Saturday in the their first double-header round of the season.

Against the Goldfields Giants, Joondalup lulled the home crowd into a false sense of security, conceding a nine-point margin at the end of the first quarter but powering home to a 115-95 victory.

Trian Iliadis earned player-of-the-week honours for a scintillating 39-point performance, which included six assists and six rebounds.

Iliadis shot at a 50 per cent clip from the field, with a 7-15 return at the three-point arc.

Prolific centre Kevin Davis fell four assists short of a triple-double in a 26-point, 14-rebound, six-assist and three-block effort.
