His side might have been unable to string four quarters together against the Willetton Tigers last Friday night, however, South West Slammers men’s coach Shane Goff still took wins from the 94-77 defeat. “We made a real focus on the players who hurt us last time — including Oliver Hayes-Brown and Damien Scott,” he said. “Oli is dangerous with all of the rebounding opportunities that he gets. Last time, he got 16, however, by three-quarter-time last week his total was around four or five. “Damien also scored a heap of threes against us earlier this year, however, in the first three quarters last week, he had not hit one. “Damien’s threes only began to hit in the last few minutes when our boys were obviously a bit tired and maybe our decision-making wasn’t all the best.” The Slammers have been working hard offensively at training this week, with an intense scrimmage on Tuesday night hopefully leading to an improved display against the Joondalup Wolves on Saturday night at the Eaton Recreation Centre. “We need to protect the middle of the court as that is where they killed us last time,” Goff said. “By getting through the middle of the keyway, they were able to make us hurt early and shut the game down, which left us chasing tails for the rest of the game. “If we work hard and defensively limit their scorers, we will give it a good, hard crack anyway.” Scouting report (Wolves) League position: 4th; last round: lost to Perry Lakes Hawks 96-90, defeated Cockburn Cougars 87-86; top performer (v Cougars) — Julian Pesava (22 points — 6/11 field goal attempts, 1/4 three-point attempts, 7/9 free throw attempts, seven rebounds, four assists).
