One of a kind, Lorraine may also have been the GOAT

In: Boomers & Opals, SA, Misc — Tuesday, 14 Dec, 2021

In the meantime, great basketball stuff has been piling up but back on deck now and will start clearing those same decks shortly!

Time now for Opals to move forward

In: Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 7 Oct, 2021

WE watched together with some measure of sadness at the performance of the Opals at the Tokyo Olympic Games, then with some hope at what may be to come from the fresh faces at the Asia Cup. Ahead of next year's FIBA World Cup, it's time for Basketball Australia to be proactive.
