The Lady Hornets will look to keep momentum going after last weekend’s big victory in the Country Basketball League South West conference at the weekend, when they come up against the seventh-placed Terang Tornadoes.
With a third victory in a row, the Lady Hornets propelled itself to second on the ladder after last week’s upset victory against Millicent away from home.
Coach Damien Kilpatrick isn’t getting carried away by the good start.
“I don’t take notice of the ladder that much, we just approach every game exactly the same, regardless of ladder position or who we’re playing,” Kilpatrick said.
“We’ve got a job to do. Every win is valuable. Early in the season it’s so important to get as many wins as you can.”
The team is looking forward to returning back to Horsham to play in front of a home crowd for the first time since round two.
“We always look forward to playing in front of our home crowd, it’s really enjoyable,” Kilpatrick said.
“I think we’re a 10-15 point stronger team at home; the crowd does a lot for us.”
The side will almost be at full strength, with utility Jessica Cannane the only player missing.
“We’ve got 15 players to choose from, normally about 12 suit up including a couple of these young girls just to sit on the bench and get a feel for it all,” Kilpatrick said.
“Jess has been playing about 15-20 minutes a game this season, so that’s just going to give somebody else a great opportunity to play those minutes.”
