NBL Rd11: Who dares wins

In: NBL — Thursday, 10 Feb, 2022

WHO dares wins may be the motto of the Special Air Services but it also surely applies to predicting winners in NBL Round 11, another one chock-full of hazardous options and untrustworthy performers. Brisbane must be driving James Duncan crazy and Adelaide testing CJ Bruton's patience.

In: WNBL — Sunday, 6 Feb, 2022
