Taylor-made to phill in phor Phoenix

In: NBL, WNBL — Friday, 14 Jan, 2022

THEY'RE definitely NOT playing ring-a-ring-a-rosey at South East Melbourne but tomorrow against the Bullets in Brisbane, Steve Taylor Jr will suit up instead of Brandon Ashley, who the Phoenix signed to replace Devin "Who?" Thomas. COVID has opened the door for some much-needed NBL quick-signing player relief.

NBL takes a punt on 'Magnificent 7'

In: NBL — Thursday, 13 Jan, 2022

SEVEN NBL matches this round to re-energise a season floundering through COVID-related postponements, is another case of magnificent optimism which, hopefully for all of us, bears fruit. There would be little better than the 2021-22 season finally getting going again.

TOTW Rd6: What happened to 4 and 5?

In: NBL — Tuesday, 11 Jan, 2022

OK. No real surprises here. The NBL Round 6 "Team of the Week" was our easiest of the season to select. That tends to happen when COVID cuts the schedule to only one game. But with the coronavirus responsible for kicking out Rounds 4 and 5, we knew NBL fans would be chomping at the bit to hear the news.

Break through at last for the NBL

In: NBL — Monday, 10 Jan, 2022

IT didn't matter if you were not a Brisbane fan or not even a New Zealander. Just seeing the NBL back on air with a scheduled game actually able to go ahead was a treat for those of us starved of entertaining basketball. And for this to end on such a clutch note with Finn Delany free throws also made it special.

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Friday, 7 Jan, 2022

THE best Australian-born coach not currently involved in the NBL, Rob Beveridge, finally has been recognised (remembered?) by Basketball Australia as the right man to fill in and lead the Boomers during Brian Goorjian's absence for next month's FIBA World Cup qualifying window.
