The Dunsborough Oilers produced arguably their most complete performance of the 2021-22 Bunbury Basketball Association season on Tuesday night at the South West Sports Centre, when they defeated a heavily depleted Aces Navy 86-46. Although Navy’s youngsters showed plenty of heart and maintained hustle at both ends of the floor until the final buzzer, the Oilers’ height under the defensive glass proved telling from the outset. The Oilers began brightly, with their quick ball movement into the paint reaping massive dividends. Holding a 31-17 lead at quarter time, the visitors put the game out of Navy’s reach in the second term, with a number of fast-break point opportunities presenting themselves from defensive turnovers. She might not have topped the scoresheet offensively, but Lisa Millman’s intangibles in this game for the Oilers were critical. Aside from playing hard defensively, she was routinely able to position herself well in order to create positive offensive looks. It might have been a tough night on the scoreboard for Aces Navy, but the coaching hierarchy would have taken plenty of comfort from Grace Adams’ performance. Despite pitted against a formidable defensive presence, Adams showed tremendous poise with her inside shooting and finished with a game-high 26 points. Elsewhere, reigning premiers Tornadoes Black secured a high-prized scalp, after knocking off league leaders Aces Sky 67-60. After trailing by double digits early in the final quarter, the league leaders trimmed the margin to within four points — however solid offensive output from Javene Fitch, Kelly Bastow and Ebony Bilcich tipped the game into Tornadoes Black’s keeping. Parity was non-existent in all three men’s matches, with Aces Sky (108-58 over the Dunsborough Oilers), Bulls Maroon (133-66 over the Eaton Eagles) and Tornadoes Red (123-76 over Bulls Gold) recording crushing victories.
