Sunbury - Eltham W. 86-82

Everything went according to plan when first ranked Sunbury (16-4) beat at home 8th ranked Wildcats (9-11) 86-82 on Saturday.

Hume City B. - Diamond VE 88-75

There was no surprise in Tullamarine where 10th ranked Diamond Valley Eagles (2-18) were defeated by sixth ranked Hume City Broncos (11-9) 88-75 on Saturday.

QBL
SW Metro P. - Toowoomba M. 74-31

No shocking result in a game in Runcorn where eighth ranked Pirates (8-7) outleveled 13th ranked Mountaineers (2-15) 74-31 on Sunday.
