FLASHBACK 79: WNBL is comingTweet
*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.*
THE WNBL season is looming, so this week, felt it time to take a look back into the league's more recent past.
Sadly, because the AFL hadn't invented women's sport yet, not as many pics exist of the WNBL in its formative years so had so slip in a few older Opals shots.
At least recognition for women's sport has improved since the 80s, right? Right?
