Junior basketballers enter finals mode THE Under 16 girls and boys Millicent Basketball Association competition’s finals series will kick off on Monday. UNDER 16 GIRLS PUMAS v DEVILS PUMAS will enter its do-or-die clash with Devils with the upperhand. Devils has won just one game in the minor rounds, while Pumas had a solid start to the season before injury and player absence hindered its result. Pumas was competitive early, but the lack of personnel resulted in a slide down the ladder. National basketballer Madi Haggett will be absent in the knock-out semi-final. Pumas will struggle without Haggett’s height and if Devils is to win, it will need to use its agility to score. ROOS v EAGLES A CLOSE battle is expected when first place Roos battles with current second-placed side Eagles. Roos’ Lucy Denton will carry her side, but she will come up against Eagles’ Georgia Winter in what will be a match up to watch.

Eagles is renowned for its quick transition from defence into attack and it will need to prevent Denton’s fast breaks and quick steals if it is to win. UNDER 16 BOYS ROOS v EAGLES ROOS enter its knockout final clash with Eagles as the hot favourites. However, it must not underestimate Eagles. Roos’ Joel Dent and Eagles’ Harry Tunkin will be a tight match up which will influence the result. George Wimshurt’s is sidelined with an injury and his height will be missed in the Eagles’ side. His absence gives Roos the advantage. TIGERS v SAINTS A COMPETITIVE game is expected when Tigers and Saints battle for supremacy on court. If both sides come to play this match could come down to the wire. However, Tigers’ agile point guard Josh Werchon and young talent Nic Joy will do everything they can to get their side over the line. If Saints play a team game and both Jaxon Cushion and Austin Fuller bring their best to the floor, this game will be a nail-biter.
