Fatigue was not an issue whatsoever for an under-staffed Tornadoes squad, who crushed the Sandringham Sabres 100-67 on Sunday.
After losing their first match of the season against the Frankston Blues, the Torns bounced back with a vengeance less than 24 hours later against a Sabres side who seemed caught off guard.
The Torns remained without six of their players who are in Mackay, Queensland for the under-20 basketball nationals.
This left just seven Torns to take on a stacked Sandringham Sabres squad which included Olympian Rachel Jarry.
An 8-0 run right out of the gate had Sandringham reeling in the initial quarter of the match.
This was led by an early outburst from Tornado Mariah Payne, who got plenty of good looks at a distance, scoring off 50 per cent of her three point attempts. The 24-year-old finished with 20 points and 12 rebounds.
Another Torn to score 20 points and notch 12 rebounds was Kelsey Griffin, whose physical presence on the court appeared to be fitting in nicely with the rest of the Launceston squad.
On the defensive end, D'Asia Chambers made life difficult for the Sabres, disrupting their offence at every turn to further frustrate the side.
After a tough outing against the Blues the night before, Torns guard Teyla Evans scrapped together 13 points and made 50 per cent of her three point attempts.
But naturally it was Torns leader Keely Froling who shone in the bout, continuing to stand head and shoulders above the competition.
The 25-year-old captain looked determined to put Saturday's loss behind her, tallying 37 points and 13 rebounds.
From a distance, Froling sunk an awesome 80 per cent of her attempts - she leads the NBL1 South in scoring averaging just over 34 points per game.
Down 15 points at halftime, the Sabres thought things couldn't get any worse. But continued turnover issues, paired with scoring massacre from Froling, Payne and Griffin saw the visitors outscore Sandringham 54-36 in the second half.
