NBL1 Central Week 2 Finals
Some exciting and close games last week, North survived a scare from Southern whose fairytale season ended while Norwood and Forestville featured plenty of highlights with Norwood coming out on top.
Sturt vs Norwood
Sturt sputtered into finals after losing a few key players to college but the extra practice time with a week off will allow them to reset. Even without Rasmussen they have the best back court in the league with Daly and Spear one of which will be asked to slow down Turnage. Green the X factor for Norwood along with Ray Harding who turned the corner recently and had some strong performances. Norwood also had a contribution from Jansen off the bench which helps their cause.
Norwood just a bit too big and talented for a well drilled Sabre team. Flames by 6.
Forestville vs North
The Eagles will be kicking themselves after losing to Norwood at home despite holding the lead for a lot of the game. Their starting 5 now with Malith Machar included is huge and gives other teams all kind of matchup problems particularly when Rios is shooting well. North rely heavily on McVeigh and while he is good they will need to find more contributors to keep this one competitive.
Forestville by 11.
