Flashback 65: Land of the GiantsTweet
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.
CAME across some old basketball magazines during my rummaging, circa 1989 when North Melbourne and Nunawading ruled the NBL and WNBL respectively.
Not all that long ago so some of these images - and players - still should be fresh in your minds.
NBL CHAMPIONS: North Melbourne Giants, 1989.
SORRY TIM DILLON: Willie Simmons says "no".
DANTE'S DAD: Cecil Exum gets this shot over Willie Simmons.
GONE FISHIN': Scott Fisher all over this rebound.
RAY RISES: Ray Borner could get up there, too.
ELSEWHERE IN 89: Tad Dufelmeier drives on Tim Morrissey.

FIRST BREAKERS: Jenny Beha fires for Perth Breakers.
LOOSE CANNON: Canberra's Les Hurst runs down a loose ball.
INTERNATIONAL OPPONENTS: North Rockets' Ann Somers wins this jump.
