PERTH Redbacks women’s State Basketball League (WSBL) lost against Stirling Senators last Saturday night at Warwick Stadium.

While the Redbacks put up a good fight , the game ended 76-68 in favour of Stirling.

Redbacks’ Jessica Jakens scored the most points in the game with 18 and Senator Taylor Bestry was close behind with 17.

This year the Redbacks added two marquee players to the squad for the 2016 season, Adrienne ‘Ajay’ Jones and Bianca Donovan.

Jones returned to the WSBL after taking time away from the courts in 2015, but is a high calibre player and hopes to bring a high level of play to the women’s side.

Formerly a Kalamunda Suns player, Jones has a number of awards and credentials under her belt in WA basketball.

Donovan joined the team after playing more than 100 games with Southwest Slammers.

Both players have settled and said they were extremely excited to continue the upcoming season as a Redback.

Next week the Redbacks take on the East Perth Eagles on April 25 at the Belmont Oasis Leisure Centre.
