THE Bendigo Braves men's and women's teams are on the road for a pair of away games against Sandringham as their NBL1 seasons continue on Saturday night.
The men are still hunting their first win of the season having started their campaign 0-4, but opportunity is knocking with the Sabres having also been slow out of the blokes with only one win from their five games so far.
While the new-look men's side under new coach Stephen Black has found the going tough early, the women have started strongly to be 3-1, including a commanding 25-point win over Ballarat at home last week.
The Braves women are spreading the load offensively, with five players averaging in double figures - Tess Madgen (29.0), Megan McKay (20.7), Kelly Wilson (19.3), Abbey Wehrung (14.3) and Cassidy McLean (13.3).
