Perth Lynx vs Southside Flyers – Friday Preview

November 28, 2019 | Perth Lynx news

The Perth Lynx will look to make it back-to-back home wins when they take on the Southside Flyers at the Bendat Basketball Centre on Friday.

The Flyers are on a three-game streak and, with only one loss to their name, lead the WNBL standings.

Perth met the new-look WNBL side earlier this season in Victoria, with the Lynx defeated in an overtime thriller.

Alison Schwagmeyer-Belger was unstoppable in that game, dropping 34 points and grabbing 12 boards.

Imani McGee-Stafford also added 17 but she will once again be missing from the side to take to the court tomorrow night.

The Flyers have numerous offensive threats and one of their biggest weapons this season has been their ability to share the load, with five players averaging more than 14 points per game.

Mercedes Russell sits atop that leaderboard with 15.8 per game.

The Perth Lynx will be wearing orange uniforms instead of their usual red as the WNBL joins the campaign to end violence against girls and women.

The club is encouraging fans to wear orange to help raise awareness for the UN Women’s 16 Days Campaign. You can get your hair sprayed orange at the game or make donations either with coins in collection tins or by texting ‘LIGHT’ to 0497 222 444.
