Double roar for the Wolves

The men emerged from a two-game losing streak to defeat 11th-placed East Perth 99-89 at Joondalup Basketball Stadium. The women extended their winning streak to three with a 62-56 victory over the 10th-placed Eagles.

In the men’s game, Joondalup’s Seb Salinas was outstanding with a triple-double.

The team captain had come close to achieving the feat in recent weeks but had fallen just short.

Not so against the Eagles.

Salinas dominated to return 26 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists in the Wolves’ best individual display this season.

Had it not been for Salinas, Joondalup centre Rob Huntington would have taken player of the game honours shooting at 64 per cent from the field with 38 points to add to his 14 rebounds and five blocks.

Earlier, the Eagles women hounded the Wolves for the majority of the contest but Joondalup held its nerve to win by six points.

Centre Ellyce Ironmonger again proved herself the key recruit this season with a 10-point and 15-rebound double-double, as well as six steals.

Nifty guard Shani Amos hit 16 points to lead scoring for the home side.

The Wolves will be up against Cockburn at home on Saturday.
