Game 5 Vs Collingwood at Thornbury High School the girls faced up to a well drilled Collingwood side.   From the outset the game was one of defensive pressure and high speed transition.

In what I would describe as the best team effort I have seen from this group, it was very pleasing to see the team’s commitement in defence, given  this is something we have not really focused on so far during our training sessions –  more of that to follow post round 6!

The girls displayed raw defensive enthusiasm has they applied cross coverage in the key and backed each other – it is fantastic to see this group shaping into the cohesive unit that will be a handful for any opposition we come across – Keep up the good work girls, you all played well today and I think you guys should be able to see what is possible when we work together with effort and enthusiasm.

Game day takeaways

  • Superb team defensive energy – like the offensive structure, we will be working on our pressure defence and defensive structures starting next week.
  • Offensive composure and perimeter structure – this is something we all need to do further work on, we need to cut out the outside shots and maintain control of the ball in our offensive end.

Collingwood ended up taking the points by 5 baskets or so however I feel we really had a big win internally by the way the girls played – Girls I am very proud of all of you, personally, when I see effort like that I know the sky is the limit with this team – Lets build on this game as we move into the last of our grading games prior to the regular season.

Again well played today girls and lets have a full turn out to training this Wednesday please bring the following;

  • Size 6 Basketball
  • Full Water bottle
  • Shoes that you play in.
