Top of the ladder McKinnon host second last Corio Bay on Saturday night at GESAC. The Cougars enter the game as favourites having won 12 of their 13 games this season. Eric Williams scored 31 points for the Cougars in Round 10 and could play a key role this week. Corio Bay enter the game off the back of a seven-game losing run. Last week the Stingrays suffered defeats to Werribee and Blackburn and now sit only percentage above last place.

Jake Heath starred for the Vikings in their victory over the Stingrays with 35 points and eight rebounds. Their task will be difficult as they face the Broncos who are third and have won four of their last five games. Jordan Coleman has excelled this season, averaging 18.8 points per game.
Chelsea will hope to end their four-game losing streak against Werribee on Saturday night. The Gulls sit seventh on the ladder and had poor results against Casey and Keilor in round 10.

The Broncos return to the court on Sunday to host Keilor who have won their last two games. The Thunder sit fourth with an 8-5 record and are 3-3 on the road. Last week they beat Chelsea by six points, courtesy of 26 points from BJ Symons and Mike Anderson.
