Major point of difference: NBL

In: NBL — Saturday, 13 Jan, 2024

THE NBL last night threw up two exciting results with a major point of difference - Melbourne beat New Zealand 82-81 in regulation but Illawarra required two overtimes to stall Tasmania 108-107, two one-point thrillers where, unfortunately, some of the officiating was not commensurate with the level of play.

Loz winds back clock and Boomers bound: WNBL

In: WNBL — Saturday, 13 Jan, 2024

VICTORIAN clubs Southside Flyers and Melbourne Boomers have asserted themselves in no uncertain manner over preseason championship favourite Sydney and league-leading Townsville respectively, the "GOAT", Lauren Jackson running into the best shooting form of her WNBL return.  


Brad&Boti: Purple rain is falling finely

In: NBL, WNBL — Friday, 12 Jan, 2024

IT WAS mighty tough for former Sydney Kings captain and my Brad&Boti podcast colleague Brad Rosen last night, watching as 12 parachutists in purple uniforms bailed from the kamikaze plane being piloted in the cockpit by Mahmoud Abdelfattah somewhere over Adelaide.

Caps in hand, find the Lynx kinks: WNBL

In: WNBL — Friday, 12 Jan, 2024

UNI of CANBERRA did it again last night, this time collecting Perth's scalp and unsettling the Lynx's hopes of clinging onto a top four spot, Alex Sharp slicing the visitors to ribbons with a monster 25-point, 19-rebound tour de force. How she is absent from the 20-player Opals squad for next month's Olympic qualifiers in Brazil is a mystery.


Sydney now at Sixers and Sevens: NBL

In: NBL — Friday, 12 Jan, 2024

ADELAIDE, once more wearing its throwback 1999 NBL (back-to-back) champion uniforms last night took a big chunk out of current back-to-back champion Sydney Kings' dreams of going one better in 2024 with a convincing home win, Trey Kell and Isaac Humphries again at their best but Sunday Dech also sizzling.


Tasmania suddenly a sinking island: NBL

In: NBL — Thursday, 11 Jan, 2024

TASMANIA is bordering on becoming the NBL's "island of irrelevancy" after dropping its road game 77-80 to a Brisbane minus the drive of its scoring wizard Nathan Sobey, but with import Chris Smith reinforcing his bona fides as a player better than a "Sixth Man of the Year" candidate.

First quarters fire up spirits: WNBL

In: WNBL — Thursday, 11 Jan, 2024

HOW important are good starts in the first quarter? Last night's WNBL matches had openers which could not have been of greater contrast yet both determined exactly how those matches would play out. Abbey Wehrung paced Bendigo to a big win over Adelaide and Sami Whitcomb powered Townsville past Melbourne.


NBL Rankings, Tips 15: In Bryce We Trust

In: NBL — Wednesday, 10 Jan, 2024

THE NBL playoff/play-in aspirations of every club not named Melbourne or Perth will go under the microscope across the eight matches in Round 15, our rankings reflecting the wide form variations which have made tipping a nightmare, beyond the always reliable - expecting Bryce Cotton to shine.

WNBL Rankings, Tips 11: Deja vu? Nah. Same old, same old

In: WNBL — Wednesday, 10 Jan, 2024

DON'T be alarmed if you miss Melbourne hosting WNBL leader Townsville tonight to help tip off Round 11. They play again at the same venue on Saturday. Nothing new there. Townsville played Perth on December 31 in Townsville. Then again at the same venue on January 3. Yes, we believe we have located the culprit behind the scheduling.


NBL TotW14: Great Scott this is a tough one

In: NBL — Tuesday, 9 Jan, 2024

FIVE of the NBL's six winners out of Round 14 had their hands up to get our attention as candidates for our Team of the Week accolade, with only league-leading Melbourne - a strong winner in Sydney but then also a lonesome loser in Adelaide - not qualifying for consideration after splitting its matches.
