Bunbury Basketball Association action returns on Friday night, with a series of pivotal match ups across both senior competitions.

In A-Women action, Tornadoes Red can enhance their bid for a top two finish with victory over the Dunsborough Oilers.

Red, who ended 2018 with a solid 88-61 win over previously undefeated sister side Black, have won four matches in a row and are one of the form sides of the competition.

In each of those victories, they have scored over 70 points – and in every defeat, not managed to score over the same barrier.

The Oilers, who currently sit 5-5, will be determined to record their second victory over Red for the campaign.

With a few weeks having passed since their maiden defeat, Tornadoes Black have an opportunity to bounce back when they do battle with Aces Sky.

Last time they met on December 7, Black ran out 63-48 winners, with Cian Parsons top scoring with 18 points.

In A-Men action, league leaders Bulls host the winless Eaton Eagles, Aces White entertain Tornadoes Black, while Aces Sky face off against Tornadoes Red.
