NBL TotW18: Finals hat-trick locked away

In: NBL — Monday, 5 Feb, 2024

ILLAWARRA, Tasmania, Melbourne and New Zealand enjoyed unblemished Round 18 NBL performances to set themselves up as the four-runners (see what I did there?) for our highly-coveted, often fought over, always cherished accolade as our Team of the Week.

Jackies jump 36ers, Breakers rolling: NBL

In: NBL — Sunday, 4 Feb, 2024

TASMANIA took a giant leap toward sealing third spot on the NBL ladder as Adelaide hit the wall in Hobart, and New Zealand's post-season picnic plans stayed alive with a Lamb-less win in Perth, the Breakers taking the edge off the post-game #53 uniform retirement party for Wildcats' legend Damian Martin.

Hawks fly into four, plucky Phoenix fleeced: NBL

In: NBL — Sunday, 4 Feb, 2024

ILLAWARRA levelled its record at 12-12 and threw Brisbane (now 12-14) under the bus when Gary Clark shone and the Hawks shut down Nathan Sobey, ahead of South East Melbourne again showing great pluck, only losing to NBL leader Melbourne by 16 in a Throwdown which had great potential for a blow-out. 


BOB'S CORNER: An individual NBA scoring spree

In: NBA — Saturday, 3 Feb, 2024

BOB'S CORNER: OUR man on the spot in the USA, BOB CRAVEN, has his weekly round-up of all (important) things NBA, not to mention what's happening in college basketball with the NCAA Men and NCAA Women. No, actually, he DOES more than just mention it and even our controversial Ben Simmons gets a shout out!

Sixers alive as Kings stumble again: NBL

In: NBL — Saturday, 3 Feb, 2024

UNIVERSALLY picked to finish dead last - a rung they sat comfortably on under previous coach CJ Bruton - Scott Ninnis' Adelaide 36ers today head to Tasmania starting the day in seventh position and with their long-shot dream of post-season action still alive, courtesy of former Kings Isaac Humphries and Dejan Vasiljevic sinking Sydney last night. 


McCall's rib tickler far from fine: NBL

In: NBL — Friday, 2 Feb, 2024

POPULAR Cairns Taipans import Tahjere McCall last night let himself down, let his club down, let the league down and let his legion of fans down with his vile and violent act against JackJumpers centre Will Magnay as Tasmania sent the Snakes' 2023-24 NBL season into mothballs with their 94-86 road win.

NBL Rankings, Tips 18: End of the road looms

In: NBL — Thursday, 1 Feb, 2024

THE top-six playoff/play-in quest could hit the end of the road for a couple of teams in NBL Round 18 with teams competing for post-season participation squaring off, Cairns-Tasmania tonight, Adelaide's two matches pivotal, Illawarra and Brisbane on the brink and New Zealand desperate for the head of NBL arch rival Perth.

WNBL Wrap 13: Top four race intensifies

In: WNBL — Wednesday, 31 Jan, 2024

BENDIGO kept alive its WNBL playoff hopes with twin wins in Round 13, Melbourne Boomers and Southside Flyers virtually put Perth out of contention, and 2022 FIBA World Cup All Star Five selection Stephanie Talbot made a triumphant return, igniting Lightning while a cyclone shut down another key fixture.

NBL, WNBL - Time for zero tolerance re referees

In: NBL, WNBL — Wednesday, 31 Jan, 2024

BOTH our elite men's and women's national leagues like to erroneously claim the mantle as the world's #2 competitions. What world is that? Uranus? Because that's such a load of crap and the biggest single reason now is because our officiating has not kept pace with our playing standards. And there is zero public accountability.

 


Brad & Boti: Opals, Paris, WNBL and NBL

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 30 Jan, 2024

IT WAS all largely quiet on the WNBL front this week past, cyclones notwithstanding, but Brad Rosen and I talked Opals and Paris Olympic qualification before we reviewed Round 17 of NBL action and looked forward to what the rest of the season promises.
