The Adelaide Lightning have swept their way past the Deakin Melbourne Boomers in the 2018/19 second Semi-Final series, booking a place in the Grand Final series which begins on February 9 with a 100-92 victory in Game 2.Nice time to piece together a big score...
A sublime performance from Adelaide's starting five saw four players reach double-figures and Nicole Seekamp record nine points and 12 assists as they tallied their second highest score of the season.
Melbourne’s offence was far improved from Game 1 but they could not get the job done defensively, giving up their highest score of the season- 28 points more than their regular season average.
They had no answers for Nia Coffey (30 points, nine rebounds, two assists), Lauren Nicholson (23 points on 9-10 shooting) and Kayla Alexander (20 points, nine rebounds, two steals) while Steph Blicavs also chipped in with 11 points and two assists.
