CLOSING the WNBL's exciting regular season breaking from tradition with the final round's Player of the Week award.
ADELAIDE's upset 76-74 win over the Capitals in Canberra to open the final round of the WNBL's regular season quickly ended speculation as to which quartet would contest this season's new-format semi finals.
EXPECT Basketball Australia any day soon to announce Andrej Lemanis' reappointment as Boomers coach for the next four-year cycle.
YES, the NBL has made giant strides this season. Yes, it has been remarkable in bringing itself forcefully back into mainstream consciousness. Yes, the league is rolling forward. But...
IT'S time! We've arrived. Can the NBL's best ever regular season now springboard us into its finest finals series? Can Canberra sneak a WNBL Final Four spot?
IT finished in dramatic fashion for the NBL, as expected, the closeness strongly reflected in the final table, especially using the North American sports system of "games behind".
IT always strikes me as a little odd to have a Player of the Week in the NBL when we already have a league MVP.
CONGRATULATIONS to the NBL. They got all the awards right, Jerome Randle easily the most obvious favourite and clearly the year's stand-out player as MVP.
THAT'S a wrap! Cut. Print it. OK. Now it's Thursday before anyone shouts: "Action!" again, and what action it promises to be.
CANBERRA kept its flickering hopes of an eleventh hour arrival in the WNBL post-season alive when it eliminated Bendigo from the race in a telling Round 18.
I KNOW. I know. I was the one who wrote Brian Goorjian virtually was a "done deal" for Melbourne's NBL program next season but lately that has cooled appreciably and Dean Vickerman's name has surfaced.
IT’S over! Well, not completely over but virtually over with Adelaide, Illawarra, Cairns and Perth now almost guaranteed to be continuing their NBL Championship quests beyond the regular season.
IT'S been a week of working out permutations and likely scenarios but there's only three things we know about the NBL's last regular season round with absolute certainty.
BY now, you've probably read a few differing versions of the many scenarios which still could play out in the last round of the NBL regular season and over the WNBL's last two.
IT has been the most even NBL season on record - we all know that now, surely even those commentators still saying it is "one of the most even" get it too - but 14-14? That win-loss mark still could suck.
WELL this one was easy, wasn't it?
SUZY Batkovic has saved the WNBL season for defending champion Townsville with two outstanding road games in Victoria.
*FLASHBACKS, my irregular "lucky dip" where I just reach into my drawers of old Australian basketball stuff and transcribe or post whatever I find for you.*
WHAT a round this will be for the NBL with the fate of only two clubs determined and six chasing three playoff berths.
REALLY reaching the pointy end of both the NBL and WNBL seasons so here is what your team's chances look like, utilising the North American sports table system of "games behind".
