The Ararat Lady Redbacks will be hoping to get their second win of the Country Basketball League season when they travel to Terang for their round 12 game on Saturday.

The Ararat team lost to the Tornadoes earlier in the season on its home court and will no doubt be looking to reverse the result in the first match back after the Christmas break.

Coach Wayne Slack said he is confident the team can continue improving on the court.

“We have got a couple of players out injured, but we’ll have a squad of nine players to rotate,” he said.

“We are seeing elements every week of improvement, the challenge we have is to be more consistent.”

Slack said it will take the Lady Redbacks’ best to win.

“Terang play very good team basketball, so we need to play very good team basketball to beat them.

“I will be looking for a better result than last time, because we are more experienced this time around.

Tip-off is at 6pm.
