In what was a critical weekend for Ballarat Basketball, the Miners have continued to look unstoppable while the Rush registered their first win of the season.
It was mixed results for the Miners and Rush in their Saturday night meetings on the road against Kilsyth.
The Rush struggled to hit shots and contain the Cobras dangerous scorers in the second half of the game, leading to an 88-66 loss.
For the Miners, the sheer size of Kilsyth's line-up caused some issues, especially when they went to a zone defence in the second half.
Ballarat were able to outlast the Cobras in the fourth quarter, outscoring Kilsyth 31-17 to seal the 87-71 win.
Sunday's slate of games brought nothing but success for both teams. First the Rush rode their hot three-point shooting and a 20-point effort from Chanise Jenkins to a victory over the Eltham Wildcats.
The Miners took the court next and showed why they're the only team left in the NBL1 men's competition without a loss against the Wildcats.
It was a terrific team effort as the Miners had seven players score in double figures in the 104-80 win. Zach Dunmore finished as the game's top scorer after hitting eight of his nine three-point attempts for 24 points.
The Miners and Rush will both return to Ballarat with momentum ahead of their next two games in front of their home crowd fans at the Minerdome. They will face the Basketball Australia Centre of Excellence in a double header next Saturday starting at 6pm.
