The fortnight drought of local basketball in Harvey has been broken with mixed results in the seniors competition.

Players returned to the courts at Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre on November 29 for the seventh round of the Harvey Basketball Association season.

In the men’s league, the second-placed Suns scored a close 43-40 victory against the Bulls to fix their spot on the ladder.

Marley Viser did a lot of the heavy lifting for his Suns teammates by scoring 20 points, easily making him the player of the match.

The Bulls’ Chase Reeves had a respectable result, shooting 12 points.

It was a similarly nail-biting match between Kaizen Elite Basketball and the Mavericks, with the former coming home with a 48-45 victory.

Jordan Cuxson (14 points) and Jaxon Cuxson (13 points) were unable to counter the lead created by Kryss Kiel Alinsonorin’s 17-point total.

Tarkyn Brown (24 points) proved his worth to the third-placed Cowboys, helping them in their 57-36 thumping of the Jumars.

There was no action from the ladder-leading Blazers, who will play for the first time in three weeks on Tuesday night following last week’s bye.

The women’s matches were one-sided affairs, with both games being won by more than 15 points.

It was a more painful repeat of Round 2 for the Djinda side, going down 57-27 to the still-undefeated Bulls.

Sarah Donovan (20 points) and Taneika Handley (14 points) both dominated the court.

The Fillies went down to a more resourced LBH team, who ultimately won 45-28.

Jamie-Lee Sherlock landed 10 points to be the highest scorer.

Players will hit the courts once again on Tuesday for the second-last round before another break for Christmas and New Years.
