Edinburgh KINGS are hot favourites in their second outing at home to Dunfermline Reign at Portobello High School tomorrow (3pm).

The clash will be preceded by the cadets at 11am and juniors at 1pm, who are both also against the Fifers.

The senior side will have to get by without Simon Flockhart, who shot 28 points against the Blaze, as he is away on honeymoon in Florida. Returning to the line-up will be the versatile Latvian Edgars Rekis as well as young guard Lee Reilly, who both missed the Blaze clash. Reilly, back from his injury woes, is apparently undaunted from his unfortunate GB under-20 experience when he hardly touched the court in the summer’s Eurobasket campaign.

Kings’ Lithuanian forward Audrius Ciapas must learn to stay on the court if he is to be fully effective as he is undoubtedly an exciting 
player and will be needed to help plug the gap left by Flockhart.
