36ers Play For Pride This Sunday

Its a rematch for the Adelaide 36ers against the Cairns Taipans and for Adelaide, team pride is on the line.

The Adelaide 36ers re-match this Sunday against the Cairns Taipans is a matter of pride for the team.

Losing to Cairns in a thriller a fortnight ago, the Adelaide 36ers want to serve some sweet revenge and show the home crowd a good game.

Adelaide 36er Mitch Creek says that the team will be coming out for the win on Sunday.

“Cairns got our number last time and we fell off in the fourth quarter, we couldn’t control Warren and they made some lucky shots,”

“The team is going to be working hard, especially on the boards and boxing out, as statistics show that if we win the boards, we usually win the game, so that is something we will be focusing on.”

Game night captain Stephen Weigh says that the team needs to be prepared for a physical clash on Sunday.

“We have incorporated a few more physical drills into training to pick up our physicality and will bring it to the game,”

“The team will be cautious of Jamar Wilson and Alex Loughton and work on them to limit their contribution.”

Mitch Creek says that it will be good to play former Adelaide 36er and mate Jeff Dowdell.

“If Jeff is going to do any damage, he’s got to jump off the floor first, he’s not the most athletic of players.” he said tongue in cheek.

There will be a team signing directly after the game on Sunday for fans to bring in their memorabilia or get posters signed.

Children of all ages have the opportunity to get their faces painted in team colours between 3pm – 5pm at the Fan Zone area, located in the south east corner of the stadium.

Adelaide 36ers will be playing this Sunday 22 January at 4pm. Tickets are available for the clash through www.proticket.com.au and start from $20 for adults.
