WNBL1 Preview: Week 7 (13/14 November 2021) - live streams, stats and more

It's a lightweight weekend in D1W, just four games make up week seven.

With 11 of the league's 12 teams all in action in the WNBL National Cup this weekend, there's still room for a quartet of D1W games tomorrow.

We take a look at all the action below, with links to live stats and live streams at the bottom of the page.

Team Solent Kestrels (3-1) v CoLA Southwark Pride (6-0)

Unbeaten CoLA Southwark Pride face a difficult test of their flawless record tomorrow as they head to Solent .

With only one loss to their name, which came against D1W's only other unbeaten side Loughborough, the Kestrels are once again putting together a competitive campaign.

With forward Molly Danielson bedding in well to her debut WNBL season and Faye Endean, Lauren Dabbs and Anna Nevison all impressing in the early going, last season's runners up will have their work cut out to seal a seventh straight win.

No doubt Southwark will lean on their ferocious defence if they are to find success. CoLA have remarkably kept two of their last three opponents below the 30-point mark, and no team is yet to score more than 57 against coach Gibbons' programme.

On the flip side, Solent average over 76ppg as one of the most free-scoring teams in the league. Will it be enough tomorrow?


Elsewhere this weekend

Cardiff Met Archers II (2-3) will look to bounce back from last weekend's 100-44 humbling by Ipswich, and a home tie against the league's basement side Nottingham Trent University (0-5) represents a solid opportunity to do just that.

Bristol Flyers (1-5) have won just one of their opening half dozen game, they're at home tomorrow against fellow strugglers London Lions II (1-5).

Despite their slow starts to the season, whichever team can take this one will still be within touching distance of the playoff spots. That should provide some added incentive for a positive result.

The week's only other game sees second place Loughborough Riders (5-0) trying to keep pace with leaders CoLA as they welcome Thames Valley Cavaliers (3-2).

TVC's captain Katherine Goldsby made the FocusHoops Team of the Week for her performance against Bristol last weekend. Her 18 points, eight rebounds and five steals showed she can be a factor at both ends of the court and Loughborough will need to find a way to slow her down tomorrow.
