Premier League Round 16
North vs Eastern
The Rockets are back! A great win last week over Norwood and CJ Reed working his way into form. Maybe we wrote him off too quickly? Eastern looking for the season to end ASAP.
North by 22 after being up 20 at the quarter.
West vs Centrals
Centrals have pushed some good teams this year, most notably Southern a couple weeks back. West struggled to get over Woodville but eventually veteran experience shone through. I expect the same this week in a competitive match, though a full strength West will be too much.
West by 7 after being down at the half.
Southern vs Norwood
The Flames will be after revenge after a mildly surprising loss last week. Big guy Hulland has only been playing limited minutes for some reason but will be asked to do more against Southern's bigs. Business as usual last week though South did score 99 on the Tigers. Turnage making his case for an All Star 5 position.
Southern by 4 and to struggle with Hulland.
Sturt vs Woodville
Only pride on the line in this one. Woodville imports finally clicked on the same night but couldn’t hold on vs West. Sturt seemingly stuck in the middle ground of beating poor teams and losing to good ones.
Sturt by 5 over a poor Woodville.
Forestville vs South
A rare Sunday fixture sees Forestville attempt to extinguish any hope of South making finals. They’ll have trouble with Davis and Young but have too many weapons the other way. Michael Harris with an amazing 52 last week has to be favourite for u21 award this year and could be the guy to lead the Eagles to the title. They would have to be firming as favourites.
Forestville by 17. DJ to have 32 points 22 rebounds and 10 assists.
