The West Coast Waves have continued their resurgence after moving into the WNBL top four with a thrilling 70-68 win over the University of Canberra at the WA Basketball Centre.

Lindsay Moore sank a clutch basket on the buzzer on Saturday night as the Waves advanced to 3-3 for the season and leapfrog the Capitals.

Their spot on the ladder would have previously been unthinkable following their disastrous 2013-14 campaign in which they slumped to the wooden spoon and finished 1-23.

However they have proved themselves competitive in 2014-15, having also scored wins over Adelaide and Bendigo in the first six rounds.

While Moore was the hero with the winning play, Cassie Harberts led the way with 16 points and seven rebounds and was crucial in keeping the home side in the game in the first half.

“Cassie held us above water in the first half … But we know there’s a long way to go and we can be so much better,” West Coast coach Kennedy Kereama said.

Jess Bilby was a standout in a losing side, collecting 15 points, while Abby Bishop and Abi Wehrung both chimed in with 13 points.

Sydney University continued their fantastic start to the season with two wins in as many days to jump to top of the table.

After beating the Melbourne Boomers 90-78 on Friday, they backed up with a 78-59 defeat of Adelaide on Saturday.

The Flames (5-1) were led by Leilani Mitchell – fresh off a 24 point effort against the Boomers – who finished with six assists and five rebounds. Katie Ebzery had 16 points, five rebounds and three assists.

They started the game with a bang, opening up a 21-7 lead at the first break and while Adelaide worked their way back into the match in the second term, they were left with too much to do.

The Townsville Fire rebounded from their first loss of the season the previous week to defeat the Melbourne Boomers 75-52 to sit in second spot.

Cayla Francis (17 points, 11 rebounds) and Suzy Batkovic (16 points, 8 rebounds) starred for the North Queenslanders who are 4-1.

Sara Blicavs (24 points and four rebounds) put in a starring display as the Bendigo Spirit downed Dandenong 89-75 on Sunday.

The third-placed Spirit (5-2) quelled the influence of Opal Penny Taylor (17 points, five rebounds and four assists) to score the victory which kept them in third.
