The red-hot Rockingham Flames will enter the NBL1 West post-season as championship favourites on the back of an 11-game winning streak. Their latest win was an easy triumph on the road over Warwick Senators, 110-87, to close out the regular season last Friday. An 11-0 run towards the end of the first quarter put the Flames in control of the match before their lead grew each quarter because of some seriously impressive outside shooting. The Flames shot 50 per cent from behind the arc, dropping a massive 19 three-pointers. Cody Hill (20 points) led the long-range snipers with six bombs and Marshall Nelson made 4/5 on his way to 22 points. Jeremy Combs and Devondrick Walker finished with 21 a piece. Midway through the fourth quarter, last season’s champions were up by as much as 29 points. Their 19-3 season record was two wins better than second-placed Geraldton Buccaneers and earns the Flames the right to home court advantage throughout the playoffs, beginning this Saturday against Perry Lakes. The Senators, who are also finals bound after finishing the year seventh, were led by captain Cody Ellis with 19 points. He too shot well from the outside, making 5/11 three-pointers. Ethan Elliott added 14 points, four assists and three rebounds, Caleb Davis 13 points, five boards, three assists and two steals, and George Pearl seven points, five rebounds, three steals and two assists. Victory over the Hawks in this Saturday’s qualifying final would propel Rockingham straight to a home preliminary final. The loser will get a second-change game in the semifinal round.
