In: NBL — Thursday, 14 Apr, 2022

WILL 13 prove unlucky for Sydney but lucky for Illawarra? For the second round in a row, it tips off with a derby game which rates as arguably the most important of the week. The Kings have 12 wins on the trot and are looking at #13. The Hawks have flown to six in succession. These are the current form teams.

TOTW Rd19: No stand-outs but consistency pays

In: NBL — Wednesday, 13 Apr, 2022

CONSISTENCY generally pays off so even in some NBL Rounds such as #19 when there was no real stand-out team, the panel here at Basketball On The Internet pontificated for several days - well, hours - before concluding Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Illawarra and Tasmania were in the running for our Team of the Week.

NBL Rd19: Throwdown makes it official

In: NBL — Tuesday, 12 Apr, 2022

IT seems an eternity ago when Round 19 tipped off but it was on opening night with the Throwdown that defending NBL champion Melbourne sent crosstown rival South East Melbourne into post-season mothballs. United's victory brought up the Phoenix's 12th loss and formally ended their playoff hopes.

Boom times well overdue: WNBL Final

In: WNBL — Sunday, 10 Apr, 2022

THE 2022 WNBL season was a disaster from a management point-of-view, poorly run, erratic rulings, highly questionable integrity and all masked by the plaintive fallback that "it was a tough season with COVID". Even on Game Day for Game 3 of the Grand Final series, for a while the championship trophy and rings were lost, er, misplaced.

THE WNBL Grand Final Series goes to a deciding Game 3 tomorrow in Melbourne but Brad Rosen and I were lucky enough to have Perth Lynx superstar Sami Whitcomb as our guest for this week's Brad&Boti podcast. Sami has one of the most amazing stories you're ever going to hear.

NBL Rd.19: Rivalries reborn, well, sort of

In: NBL — Thursday, 7 Apr, 2022

THE NBL's "Throwdown" resembles the AFL's "Showdown" and is just one of three rivalries revisited in Round 19, a week of games where the last rites will surely and formally be declared on South East Melbourne's long-shot (no-shot?) playoff aspirations.

Miracle at Westworld - Boomers force Game 3

In: WNBL — Thursday, 7 Apr, 2022

IF Melbourne Boomers complete their amazing WNBL Grand Final Series comeback on Saturday against Perth with the club's second championship, coach Guy Molloy, import Lindsay Allen and captain Cayla George should take a bow.


Boomers facing a huge challenge in Perth

LOSING Game 1 of the best-of-three WNBL Grand Final Series has left Melbourne Boomers with a major uphill climb to avoid a "straight sets" elimination by the Lynx in Perth tonight. And it's not as if they just narrowly lost that series opener either, Darcee Garbin leading a 27-point rout.

With those magnificent seven words, Benny Mills, father of superstar Patty, summed up why this Easter, the Indigenous Basketball Australia (IBA) will launch its historic first National Indigenous Basketball Tournament, coronavirus having forced the cancellation of what would have been the inaugural series last year.
