The Stingrays host the Cavaliers to open the round at Geelong Basketball Netball Centre. Corio Bay only have two wins on the board this season and will need to bounce back from consecutive losses.  Meanwhile although Casey currently sit fourth on the ladder at 12-6, they have dropped their last three and are just 4-5 on the road this season. 

Hume City meet Keilor at Broadmeadows Basketball Stadium in a 2nd v 5th clash with plenty at stake. The Thunder face an uphill battle of climbing into the top four, but with Casey’s recent dip in form, remain an outside chance. The Broncos will be hard to take down, having won eight in a row as the form team of the competition. 

Blackburn host McKinnon at Mullum Mullum Stadium as the Cougars look to consolidate first place. McKinnon are coming off a loss to the Broncos last week, while the Vikings have dropped their last two to sit 3-15 for the season to date. 

Werribee and Chelsea do battle at Eagle Stadium in a 7th v 6th matchup. Both sides would need everything to go their way and then some to make the finals from here, but stranger things have happened. The Gulls are actually better on the road (4-5) than at home (2-7) this season. 

McKinnon host Corio Bay at GESAC to open the Sunday card. Both sides are coming off Saturday games and are positioned at either end of the ladder. You wouldn’t expect the Cougars to have any problems in this one. 

Chelsea and Hume City meet at Patterson River Stadium, again with both teams coming off Saturday games. The Broncos are on a fierce winning streak and showing no signs of slowing down, with the potential to extend that to 10 games if they can get past the Gulls. 

Casey and Hawthorn face off at Casey Stadium in a blockbuster top four clash. The Magic bring fresh legs into the match and are also one of the form teams of the league, having won their past four games. The Cavs have been in a slump and would want to pick it up for finals. 

Keilor and Blackburn round out the fixture at Keilor Basketball Stadium. The Thunder are coming off a tough away clash against Hume City on Saturday, while the Vikings could be staring down a fourth-straight loss here if they can’t get past McKinnon.

Championship Women

Hume City and Keilor kick off the round at the Broadmeadows Basketball Stadium on Saturday night. The Broncos enter the game on a five-game winning streak which has propelled them to second on the ladder. The Broncos continued their good form in round 14 with a 44-point win over Warrnambool. Nicole Zammit starred for the Broncos with 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Keilor will aim to return to the winners list after a 22-point loss to Werribee last round. The Thunder will look to their offence to fire them to victory as they have scored the most points of any team in the division this season. 

Southern Peninsula could close the gap to the top four with a win over Warrnambool on Saturday night. However the Sharks have won just two of their last five games to drop three wins below fourth-placed Keilor. They will not have a better opportunity to return to form as they host winless Warrnambool at Dromana Stadium. The Mermaids haven’t been able to break their winless drought so far this season and remain at the bottom of the ladder. Amy Wormald has been gallant for the Mermaids this year, averaging 14.9 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. 

First plays third when Werribee host Sunbury at Eagle Stadium on Saturday night. The Devils extended their record to 12-2 in Round 14 with a win over Keilor. Alisia Jenkins has been a stand out for the Devils this season, averaging 25.5 points, 13.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game, however Werribee will have a tough task overcoming the Jets who have won four of their last five games. Sunbury are potent at both ends of the court and have the division’s second-best offence (84.8 points per game) and concede the fewest points of any team (59.3 points per game). Expect an entertaining game when these two sides meet at 6:30pm on Saturday night. 

It’s a battle of the strugglers when Casey host Bulleen at Casey Stadium. The Cavs sit eighth on the ladder, following a nine-game losing run. They sit one position above the Boomers who have won two of their last five games to close the gap between the two sides. Casey Valenti-Paea could play a key role to the outcome of the game as she averages 19 points per game this season. 

The round concludes when McKinnon and Whittlesea do battle at GESAC. The Cougars have won three of their last four games to extend the gap between themselves and the Pacers who sit one position below them on the ladder. Whittlesea have won two of their last five games but had a shock loss to Bulleen in Round 14. Rachel Bell has starred for the Pacers this season, averaging 25.8 points per game.

Eltham host Warrandyte to continue the Saturday card at Eltham High School. The Wildcats have won two in a row and could yet push into the top six if they can continue their good form. The Venom will be no pushovers though, sitting fourth at 10-4. They have dropped three of their last five.

Warrandyte and Camberwell cap off Round 15 at Warrandyte Sports Complex in a blockbuster top four clash. The Dragons have dropped two of their last three but knocked off Corio Bay last week.
