SATURDAY FIXTURES

COURIER MAIL GAME OF THE ROUND: REDCITY ROAR v USC RIP CITY
This week’s Courier Mail Game of the Round will headline a clash between RedCity Roar and USC Rip City on Saturday night. Holding the top spot on the ladder, RedCity remains undefeated following their epic clash with the Southern Districts Spartans last round. Harry Froling is thrashing competition, averaging at 34 points and 17.25 rebounds so far. Even the toughest opponents don’t seem to faze Froling, after he turned up the heat against the Spartans, dropping a triple-double with a whopping 42 points, 17 rebounds and 10 assists. Not far behind, Will McDowell-White impressed everyone with 39 points, 14 rebounds, 7 assists and 3 steals.

The Froling/McDowell-White duo will prove troublesome, but after their loss last round USC Rip City are not backing down from the fight. All eyes are on Louis Ilton, who dropped a double-double last weekend against the South West Metro Pirates (14 pts, 11 reb, and 3 ast). We are also keeping tabs on Dane Glover, who helped himself to 12 points, and Kai Bloomer who was voted in as a Round 4 fan favourite for his poster dunk.

Brisbane Capitals are full of confidence after downing Northside Wizard by 49 points last weekend.

NORTHSIDE WIZARDS V SD SPARTANS
Coming off a brutal loss against the Capitals, Northside Wizards are back in action this weekend. Going head to head with Southern Districts Spartans, the Wizards are in for another challenging round. They will need to make every second on the court count if they want to move up the ladder, looking to Fraser Lowrie, who fought well against Capitals with 9 points and 4 rebounds.

After thrashing the Seahawks in their first game of Round 4, Spartans suffered their first loss of the season to RedCity Roar. Eager to bounce back, we have our eyes on a few key players that shined last weekend. First on our list is Anthony Drmic, who didn’t waste a second of his 15 minutes on the court against the Seahawks, racking up 18 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists. Backing it up with a double-double against the Spartans (23 pts and 19 reb), Drmic lives up to his baller reputation.
