After a short break for Christmas we can look forward to a tremendous struggle for the Division One Basketball premierships if recent results are any guide.

Last week in Division One Women Loxton with 9 points from Ellie Thomas and 8 from J Miller defeated Barmera (Lisa Millard, Annabel O`Dea 7) 45-27 while Berri and Renmark drew.

Berri led by five points with 90 seconds remaining in the game but could not hold the ladder leader at bay.

In Division One Men Renmark (Josh Warnock 11, B Tregeagle 7) defeated Berri (A Francis 17, L Francis6) 41-38. Renmark was 13 points to the good six minutes into the final quarter but Craig Seekamp was fouled out and Berri went on a 10 point scoring spree and in fact had the last 30 seconds to level the game but could not get the job done.

Loxton won a thriller against Barmera 35-34. Charlie Rogers 8 and Che Lange 6 led the Loxton scoring with Dillon Millard scoring 14 and Danny Millard 6 for Barmera.

In the other Divisions Allstars defeated Waikerie 43-24 and Loxton – Barmera 37-17 in Women`s Two and in Men`s Two Barmera and Loxton drew 33-33 and Supercats 36 defeated Waikerie 27.
