In terms of challenging assignments throughout the Bunbury Basketball Association’s A-women competition right now, facing an in-form Tornadoes Red is about as challenging as it gets.

This is the task awaiting competition newbies Aces Navy, who will attempt to end Tornadoes Red’s impressive eight-game winning streak on Friday night.

Although they enter on the back of a two-game skid, Paul Craig’s side continues to develop each week.

Aside from occasional turnovers and unexecuted offensive looks, the younger Navy players are steadily improving their passing in and around the paint, which has the potential to cause headaches for rival teams.

To upset the applecart on Friday night, the Navy defence is going to need to jam Cian Parsons’ running lanes to the offensive glass and translate as many defensive stops into points as possible.
