CAL Bruton and Brendan Joyce on the same court was trouble. On the same bill as lunch speakers? Hold onto your party hats!
CJ BRUTON having his #23 retired by the NZ Breakers was an appropriate reward for a great career and a great start to Round 2 of the NBL season.
IT was hard not to notice the Fire drew 1,900-plus to their first WNBL home game after the Crocs drew 1,400-and-change to theirs, yet both played at the Townsville RSL Stadium.

DARRYL McDonald has the United coaching job and it is his to lose, every game he takes as "interim" part of his audition for the gig fulltime.
BRISBANE-based journo and hoops junkie BRAYDEN HESLEHURST joins B.O.T.I. and says the NBL is overdue showing its cards on the Brisbane bid in 2015-16.
