Lucas returns to the helm

Fire V Adelaide lightning 2015-1-57

The JCU Townsville Fire has confirmed that championship winning coach Chris Lucas will return to the helm for tonight’s round 18 Wattle Valley WNBL fixture in Perth.

Lucas missed last week’s record-breaking victory over Dandenong after returning to Adelaide for a non-basketball related matter.

Since joining the Fire in 2011/12, Lucas has steered the club to five successive post-season appearances including the past three Grand Finals and boasts a winning percentage of 65%.

The Fire can secure back-to-back minor premierships on the weekend with a win against Perth or Adelaide.
