CBL tip off in Horsham and Ararat

Ararat and Horsham men’s teams will tip off their 2019-20 Country Basketball League campaigns with games against Millicent this weekend.

The Redbacks will host the Magic on Saturday at 7pm at Ararat Fitness Centre, with the Hornets taking on the South Australian outfit the next day at Horsham Basketball Stadium at 2pm.

The Magic should be an interesting test for both sides in its return to the competition after a season off from men’s competition.

Millicent’s women’s team captured last season’s south-west conference title, defeating Geelong in the grand final.

Ararat also enters the season with question marks surrounding it after losing star guard Zac Dunmore from last season.

The Redbacks were competitive in 2018-19 with five wins and 10 losses, but could find the going harder without Dunmore.

Horsham has retained all of last season’s players bar former coach Cam Bruce, who has retired.

The Hornets finished atop the ladder with a 14-1 record before falling to Bacchus Marsh in a semi-final, and should again be among the conference title contenders.

Stawell Wildcats kick off their campaign on October 19.
