The Launceston Lightning men's and women's squads started state league round two with mixed results in the North-West on Saturday.
The women's side continued to build their dominant form in their first game of the day against Ulverstone.
A top team effort saw the Lightning cruise to a 92-24 win against the Redhoppers.
Tornado Aishah Anis dominated downtown once again, sinking five threes and finishing with 17 points.
Women's coach, Basketball Launceston's Sarah Veale said the team played well against a depleted Ulverstone, with development players able to get decent court time.
Elsewhere in sport:
The next game saw the women's side drop a lead against the top-tier BTas High Performance team.
"That game was a hard pill to swallow," Veale said.
The Lightning women's now face a must-win game on Sunday against the Wynyard Wildcats should they want to keep their finals hopes alive. The men's squad continued to struggle in round two, falling to KHBA Kings 95-60 at Latrobe.
This was not helped by the fact that a couple of the men's key players, including Sejr Deans and Lachie Brewer, played for the BTas High Performance team against the Grenadiers.
However, the men's Lightning came through against the Grenadiers, winning 86-78. This was aided by a scoring assault from Moses Van Den Burg (27 points) and Henry Cox (24 points).
