ROUND SIX: North Adelaide Rockets vs Eastern Mavericks

WOMEN by Adam Jones

The Mavericks have started firing on all cylinders. Carmen Tyson-Thomas, Brooke Basham, and Stephanie Ratliff are the big 3 in the league and over the past couple of weeks have dominated the league. The Rockets will have a lot to look out for as the Mavericks went deep into their bench last week in a 30-point win over the Lions. The Rockets are coming off a loss to the South Adelaide Panthers were Mollie McKendrick recorded a 20-20 triple-double. Tyson-Thomas is capable of doing the same and the Rockets defence will need to be on point to stop her.

 

Hang Time Prediction: Eastern Mavericks

 

MEN by Daniel Renfrey

The Rockets got back to winning ways over the weekend, defeating South Adelaide 97-83. The side played great team offence, linking up well and hitting a good percentage of their shots. However, the most impressive part of their performance was their swarming defence, which managed to produce 16 steals. Starling was a standout with 30 points and 19 rebounds, but he also had strong support from McVeigh, Johnson and Dowdell. The Mavericks, on the other hand, were not able to pull out a win, losing to the Lions 105-94. While Eastern played some impressive  offence, their defence was lacking, especially on the perimeter with Central Districts shooting 11-22 from distance. Brandon Morris put in a strong shift with 42 points and 12 boards. If the Mavericks want to win this one, they will have to play a more complete defensive game. However, if North Adelaide produce a similar performance to Round 5, they’ll be too hard to beat.
