The Singapore Indoor Stadium welcomes another challenger tonight (14 December 2010) in the form of Satria Muda Britama from Indonesia in the ASEAN Basketball League (ABL) regular season game. This will be the 3rd time both teams cross sword, with honours even after the last 2 encounters.
A win for the Slingers would see them rise up to the ladders and gain home court advantage in the Playoffs whilst the Indonesian-based team needs a win to qualify for the Playoffs. Marcus Morrison will lead the team once again but will face resilience in the form of Al-Vergara and Leo Avenido. Al-V would be hoping to use this game to find back the form that had deserted over the past few games whilst it remains a mystery as to Skinner (who have very good games against SM) or Leo or the both of them would be on fire tonight.
Desmond Oh, scoring 11 points in the last home game, would be hoping to maintain his streak and the writer had already challenged him to get 20 points tonight, in front of the home crowd. Steven Khoo, Wong Wei Long and Ng Han Bin would be expected to play a significant part in tonight’s game as well, with Wong probably staring at more minutes.
After the last game disappointment which culminated in a loss, the Slingers are poised to bounce back with a ‘W’ tonight. So wait no further, join the Slingers and cheer for your very own Singapore representative in the ABL.
