The Hood Sweeney Adelaide 36ers will tonight take on the Townsville Crocodiles in Townsville. The 36ers will be playing for pride while the Crocs will be playing to jump into first position on the NBL ladder. The 36ers suffered a one point loss when the teams last met despite leading and controlling a majority of the game.
The 36ers are without their full roster as John Gilchrist replacement, Tom Garlepp, remained in Adelaide with a mysterious foot injury. Garlepp has been cleared of having any bone injury to his foot but is still suffering from swelling and is unable to place significant weight on his foot.
Jacob Holmes and David Cooper will also play tonight despite still suffering from foot injuries themselves.
Coach Scott Ninnis is keen for his team to get two wins in the remaining two games for the club. The 36ers have shown all year that on their night they can be one of the most feared teams in the league.
