The Ararat Redbacks will return to the court at the weekend with a road trip to Terang set to resume the Country Basketball League season.
The Redbacks have struggled at different times during the season but in the earlier season clash against the Tornadoes in round four, it was Ararat who got the win by 21 points in front of its home crowd.
The home team had three players who scored 10 points or more which played a big part in the result.
This time the Ararat team will have to do it away from home with the challenge to replicate the performance in an unfamiliar environment.

The team returned to training this week and coach Steve Cronin said he is confident the earlier season performance can be replicated.
“We had a good session on Monday night and everyone looked good,” he said.
“It is always different playing away from home but we have a couple of inclusions for this match that we didn’t have last time we played them which will help strengthen the squad.
“The return of Josh Feigert will be a big asset for us after missing the last few games due to being overseas and Jesse Poulton returns from an ankle injury.” Tip-off is at 8pm on Saturday.
