Bendigo Braves will host Waverley Falcons on Saturday night for round seven of the NBL1 season.
Braves women head into the clash after enduring their first loss of the season last week to the Geelong Supercats.
Braves women's coach Megan Moody said it was important not to "dwell on the loss".
"Every game is a new game and our focus is now on defeating Waverley," Moody said.
"We need to make sure we fix the little lapses we had last week and play every possession like it's the last one of the game."
Waverley women are currently 13th on the ladder with a 2-6 record in comparison to the Braves in 3rd with 7-1.
However, Moody said the Falcons had several strong players.
"They have great players in Carley Ernst - who has just signed with the Bendigo Spirit - in addition to Tegan Cunningham and Kelly Bowen," Moody said.
"During the match against Geelong we gave up 17 threes so we need to focus on not allowing so much penetration in the key.
"Our focus will be defensive intensity."
Braves women will have star import Becca Tobin on the team's roster for the clash.
Tobin is fresh off a finals series with German club Keltern, and is hungry to keep the momentum going in her debut NBL1 season.
In the lead up to the match, Tobin has been doing plenty of research on her new team.
"I've been watching a lot of the games online," Tobin said.
"From what I've seen the Braves are a really good team that play well together."
Braves men will go into the match in fourth position on the ladder with a 5-3 record, with Waverley trailing close behind in fifth position also with 5-3.
During pre-season matches the Braves defeated the Falcons by one point.
"Waverley are a well coached team which came up from the Big V last year," Hogan said.
"This will be the first time we see a lot of the team's players."
However, there are a couple of the squad's players that Hogan knows will be strong come game time.
"The two imports Dylan Travis and Deondre McWhorter are incredibly strong players and also Ben Lewis," Hogan said.
"Both Ray Turner and Deonte Burton will be key to matching their opposing players."
Bendigo Braves host the Waverley Falcons at the Bendigo Stadium ton Saturday night.
Women tip off at 5.30pm, followed by the men at 7.30pm.
