The Sydney Flames went head to head against the Melbourne Boomers at the State Basketball Centre and held off a late comeback from the Boomers to finish with an important 80-71 victory!

Leilani Mitchell (25 points, four rebounds, five assists) and Jennifer Hamson (19 points, 11 rebounds) provided the offensive firepower for the Flames, while Lauren Nicholson’s near double-double (11 points, 8 rebounds) off the bench was extremely handy in keeping the Boomers at bay.

Leilani played for the Australian Opals, WNBA playoff games, in the recent Rio Olympics and with Washington Mystics.
