In: Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 12 Sep, 2023

NOW the dust has settled on the FIBA World Cup, it’s fair to say Australia delivered a small ‘F’ fail in Okinawa and Manila. You cannot fly out spouting “gold vibes only,” then not make it to the quarter-final round after promising a podium finish. Sorry. That’s a fail. It just isn’t a crisis.

Boomers get it right again

In: Boomers & Opals — Monday, 8 May, 2023

HOW reassuring is it these days to see an Australian men's squad announced, look at it and think only positive thoughts? Brian Goorjian's 18-man Boomers squad for the FIBA World Cup in August has three obvious omissions but is so rich in talent that medal salivations are warranted.
