The Adelaide 36ers will take on the Townsville Crocodiles at 4pm this Sunday at the Adelaide Arena and are looking to take the game to the Crocs, in their third hit-out with the Queensland team in 19 days.
The 36ers plan to use the crowd to get behind the team and to use the home court to their advantage.
Adelaide 36ers CEO, Leeanne Grantham, says that she hopes that Townsville are ready for a vocal crowd this weekend.
“We really want fans to get behind the team and show there support in our clash with the Townsville Crocodiles,” she said.
“Adelaide Arena can be an intimidating place for teams and this Sunday, we want to make it especially loud and daunting for Townsville.”
Nathan Herbert said that it is a tough time for the whole club, but the boys need the fans support and the team are doing everything possible to get the win this weekend.
“The whole team is positive, there are things that we did wrong in the final quarter and we are working on improving them in training,” he said.
“There were a lot of positives in our matches last weekend and we are looking to replicate them and increase the amount of positive things we do and come out with the win.”
Fans are encouraged to get down to the Adelaide Arena on Sunday for the 4pm tip off. There will be pre-match between the SA Police and the Sudanese community, beginning at 2.05pm, plus a police motorcycle located at FanZone that kids can have their photo taken on between 2pm and 3.15pm.
