Boroughmuir Blaze lost 67-60 at home to Troon Tornadoes at the Crags last Saturday but were hit by a virus and work commitments and had only six seniors plus two juniors available.
Coach Simon Turner believes they could still have won, picking out guard John Brown for his strong play despite two knocks: “He was excellent.”
Blaze are at Glasgow Storm tomorrow though Turner will miss the game and Lee ‘Chopper’ Pettett and Michael McGregor are fitness doubts.
Blaze juniors will be warming up for their Scottish Cup final against Tayside Musketeers with an away game to Glasgow tomorrow to play the Rens, who are no pushovers judging by their recent overtime game with Kings.
Blaze will have GB under-17 3x3 team player Malcolm Winning back after his triumphant trip to Australia where he and Gregor Gray (Kings) won bronze medals.
Kings are away to Perth Phoenix tomorrow.
Kool Kats junior women, who are also preparing for a Scottish Cup final against St Mirren, like the seniors play Rocks in Cumbernauld.
