Mav's Women show why they are top

A CLINICAL Eastern Mavericks put a giant dent in West Adelaide’s finals hopes with an 11-point win at Port Adelaide on Sunday.

The Mavericks showed no hangover from knocking off Southern Tigers in a top-of-the-table clash on Saturday night as they completed a weekend sweep with an 85-74 victory over the Bearcats.

West Adelaide started brightly, sinking its first three shots and opening up a six-point break midway through the first period.

Sensing her team was in for a battle, Alex Wilson took it upon herself to spark the Mavericks into action.

Wilson drained 18 points for the quarter – including three from beyond the arc – and put Eastern up at the break with a buzzer-beating lay-up.

The 23 year old slowed in the second – only scoring six points – but her teammates did not as the Mavericks opened up a seven-point lead after 20 minutes.

Eastern’s bench scored 14 of its 23 points for the quarter, led by seven from Brooke Basham.

The Bearcats closed the gap in the third before the Mavericks answered back in the last to hold control of the match.

Wilson finish with a game-high 34 points,13 rebounds and three assists.

Kedeisha Kartinyeri added 17 points, including 13 in the second half, and dished off another four.

West's best were Ieva Nagy (22 points, 10 rebounds) and Ashlea Vordermaier (18 points, six boards and five assists).

The loss left the Bearcats languishing in seventh spot, three wins back from fifth-ranked Sturt.

Eastern sits atop the table with nine wins from 10 outings.

West visits Woodville on June 17, while the Mavericks will enter their clash with Central Disricts on the same night as red-hot favourites.
