After tipping off their campaign with consecutive home games at Bendigo Stadium, the Lions venture onto Hallam’s court.

The hosts were beaten by Box Hill, 69-31, but struck back to thrash Rowville by 73 points.

Despite the hosts’ hot run so far, BSSC will be doing all it can to convert scoring chances and defend strongly.

A first-year player with the Bendigo Braves in the SEABL, Josh Garlepp is coach of BSSC for today’s match.

Garlepp has teamed up with his older brother, Josh, and Lady Braves and Bendigo Spirit star Renae Camino to play key roles in the Lions’ preparation and on game-day.

After a 21-point loss to Rowville in round one, Bendigo Senior struck back brilliantly against Box Hill.

The contest was decided in the final seconds as Box Hill won by a point.

A talented Bendigo Senior team includes Victoria Country representatives Molly Greetham and Caitlin McLachlan.

Both will play key roles in the Lions attack.

Kyneton’s Jess Mangan was one of BSSC’s best in the battle with Box Hill and her athleticism is a huge plus at both ends of the court.

The Lions will look to Brooke Bolton and Chloe Finnigan to set up and finish off attacks.

Jasmin Drummond, Madi Higgins, Adele Rogers and Monica Wellington will be keen to play well in this match, which will decide final standings for the semi-finals to be played on June 19 at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre.

Grand finals in the SSV premier league basketball competitions for boys and girls will be on June 26 at MSAC.
