What is happening in Sunbury? The Jets hadn't lost a Big V fixture in a season and a half but now they have lost twice in a fortnight. To be precise they had won 35 consecutive games so to lose two on the trot is not something followers of the team expected.

However it's not all doom and gloom for the Kennedy Kereama coached Jets as they still sit top of the Big V table with an 11-2 record despite going down 71-61 at Ringwood Hawks

Tall Ferns centre Josie Stockill threatened a triple double for the Jets with 16 points, 10 rebounds and 7 blocks.

Also in Melbourne Jessica Bygate (186-F-92) secured a double double of 20 points and 13 rebounds for Sandringham but the Sabres went down 68-52 to Kilsyth Cobras. The Sabres are now 4-9 in the SEABL East competition.

On the Australian west coast Perry Lakes Hawks suffered a surprise first defeat of the season in the State League. Perry Lakes (14-1) went down 72-63 to Joondalup Wolves on Friday with Toni Farnworth contributing 8 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists for the Hawks.

Perth Redbacks lost 83-75 at Stirling Senators with Lisa Wallbutton adding 8 rebounds to 10 points for the Redbacks. The Redbacks slip to seventh on the twelve-team ladder with a 6-8 record.

It was a mixed weekend in Queensland Basketball League for Micaela Cocks and Chevannah Paalvast.
Their club Mackay Meteorettes scooted past Gold Coast Rollers 74-39 on Friday but met a storm at Logan on Saturday rolled 88-69 by the Thunder.

Cocks had 7 points and 9 rebounds on Friday and 11 points the following day. Paalvast scored 13 points against the Rollers and 9 points at Logan.

Mackay slip to third on the ladder with an 8-2 record.

Top of the table are unbeaten Brisbane Spartans (10-0) after wins against Ipswich and Toowoomba at the weekend.

Kalani Purcell nailed 18 points and 10 rebounds at Ipswich and followed up with 10 points against Toowoomba. Natalie Taylor scored 14 points in the second game of the weekend after going scoreless at Ipswich.
