Basketball: Huge weekend for Kool Kats

Have your say

Edinburgh Kool Kats still have a chance of winning two Scottish League titles and they can take two big steps towards that goal this weekend.

In the Scottish junior women’s league, they welcome St Mirren to Portobello High School tonight (7.50pm).

And then on Sunday, the Saints seniors travel to Portobello for a 12 noon showdown.

Tonight’s match sees the unbeaten Kats attempt to complete a season’s treble over their West rivals. And Sunday’s game is also a must-win for Kats as they chase Glasgow Rocks, who are back in Edinburgh to play Polonia Phoenix at the Crags (3.20pm).

Edinburgh Kings welcome back Garreth Lodge and Matt Kruczynski for their game with Troon Tornadoes at Portobello tomorrow (3pm), which is preceded by the cadets (11am) and juniors (1pm).

Elsewhere, Boroughmuir Blaze seniors travel to play Glasgow University at the Stevenson Building (3.35pm), while their juniors and cadets are away to Perth Phoenix.
