The Albury-Wodonga Bandits face a big challenge this weekend as another double header away looms.
Despite sitting on five wins and eight losses this season, Bandits guard Bailey Lloyd still has finals on his mind.
"It's definitely going to be two tough games, but we come with the mindset that we're going to win and it's a mentality that we have to have," Lloyd said.
"If we're still expecting to make finals we need to play as hard as we can and whatever happens, happens."
Both scoring and defence are areas the team will look to strengthen when they play the Southern Sabres and Ballarat this weekend.
"We need to find a happy medium at both ends," Lloyd said.
"We need to have urgency on the defensive end and look to attack and penetrate on the offensive end and put those two together.
"Hopefully we win some games from there.
"We're looking for all the guys to pitch in for a well rounded performance."
