Flames prepare for jam-packed road trip before double-header with Sydney Kings
The Brydens Sydney Uni Flames are looking to get their season back on track in a crucial two-game road trip this weekend after a couple of tough defeats to Perth Lynx, with the finals still within reach.
The Flames slumped to 2-6 as Perth got the better of them for the third time this season in a high-scoring 91-82 affair, showing encouraging signs on offence as both teams lit it up from three-point range.
Having played well in all four home games this season, Sydney Uni are raring for the challenge to snare their first win on rival turf, starting their away trip against Bendigo Spirit on Friday 29th November.
Bendigo also boast the same record, raising the stakes as both teams look to claw their way back into the finals picture.
Once full-time is blown it is straight back into business for the Flames who will suit up again on Saturday 30th November to take on the high-flying Melbourne Boomers.
The Boomers have the minor premiership in their sight, sitting just one win behind Southside Flyers, which gives the Flames a great opportunity to test themselves against the competition’s elite.
On their return to Sydney, the Flames will begin preparations for their double-header with the Sydney Kings at Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday 8th December, hosting Adelaide Lightning.
During the round, the WNBL will be championing ‘Orange the World’ initiatives through various game day activities – a call for the prevention and elimination of violence against women and girls.
The colour orange, which will dominate jerseys across the league, is a key theme joining all activities across the world to bring global attention to the issue of violence against women and girls.
Show your support for a great cause by donning an orange shirt in the crowd. Tickets available here.
