MEL v SEM Nov 16
It's a double shot of organic soy latte with a twist of lemon today.
SEM got over the line in round 1, but in round 2, Long and Goulding had a field day to help United in a 12 point win. SEM are 2nd and MEL are 4th, so get the couch ready, crack open a coldie and grab the remote.
SEM are Creek and Roberson. They've had a cracking opening to the season but a season is not a sprint, it's a marathon. Finals teams need guys to improve over the season and peak at the right moment. Climaxing too early is not a good result for anyone. Games like these need a hero to drop a lazy 20, or hold the other team's hero to their lowest score. Who will stand up today?
MEL are a well polished team and have three players averaging over 20 ppg. Long is the leading rebounder, well equal with the Bogieman, but is averaging an incredible 4.56 offensive rebounds a game. So even when United throw up bricks, they have the confidence that Shawn's long arms will get it.
There will be plenty of action today and it's hard to see United losing this game. If you're going to the game, don't forget to tap off the Myki card or to bring your coffee cup from home.
United by double digits
