South West Slammers men’s coach Shane Goff is keen for his team to respond after Saturday night’s 87-56 loss against the Goldfields Giants in Kalgoorlie. The Slammers were held to six points in the final quarter — something which Goff put down to a multitude of factors, including confidence, conditions and travel fatigue. “Confidence is a beautiful thing,” he said. “We were able to get the shots up but they weren’t dropping. When you have a 206cm guy (Ben Stevens) who misses three or four from a metre and a half away and they usually go in? “It was like someone put a bit of Glad cling wrap over the ring for us in the last part of the quarter and we weren’t able to capitalise.” The Slammers host the Warwick Senators on Saturday night at the Eaton Recreation Centre, with former Illawarra Hawks forward Cody Ellis looming as a potential danger man — given his exceptional 6/7 performance from beyond the arc during Saturday’s 106-99 win over the Joondalup Wolves. Goff’s mantra for his players ahead of the clash is to just make it as difficult for the Senators as possible. “The boys are aware of what they need to do as I’m sure they’ve thought really hard about it,” he said. Scouting report: (Men’s) Senators: League position: 6th. Last round: defeated Perth Redbacks 97-78, defeated Joondalup Wolves 106-99; top performer (v Wolves) - Cody Ellis (25 points - 2/5 field goal attempts, 6/7 three-point attempts, 3/3 free throw attempts, one rebound, three assists, one steal).
