Boomers' legacy as Baltic giants pass on

In: Boomers & Opals, SA — Sunday, 5 Jun, 2022

SOUTH Australian basketball has lost four of its greats - three of its mightiest players of a bygone era and one of its most fabulous non-playing characters - in the past few months but their legacies live on, the game in the state heavily influenced by their presence and guidance over the long, long haul.

Japan clinches exhibition as Opals press claims

In: Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 31 May, 2022

YOU'VE got to love it when a rookie comes on for her first run as an Opal, lines up at the keyway, snatches an offensive rebound from a missed free throw, gathers herself with a dribble, scores and takes the foul before adding a bonus free throw. Welcome to international play Anneli Maley.

Opals nipped in the bud by Japan

In: Boomers & Opals — Monday, 30 May, 2022

JAPAN yesterday overhauled a 10-point deficit, held onto a three-point lead, then stood back to allow Maddi Rocci a two-point layup which preserved a 56-55 Game 2 win in their three-match exhibition series against Australia. Surely that wasn't the play acting-Opals coach Cheryl Chambers drew up.

A PAIR of Opals Boomers, a rookie and a veteran tonight laid waste to a bold Japan, winning the opening game of a three-match exhibition 72-66 at Sydney's Quaycentre. The Tokyo Olympics Silver Medallists seized control in the third, only to see Jade Melbourne and Sara Blicavs snatch it back.

B&B: The GOAT on Bronze, Hawks, Dragons and more

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Friday, 20 May, 2022

BRAD Rosen and I had the GOAT of Australian basketball (if not pro sports) coaching, Brian Goorjian, as our interviewee on our Brad&Boti podcast well before the Tokyo Olympics. There's been two seasons with Illawarra in the NBL since, a Bronze Medal and now the region's "Euroleague" - the East Asian Super League.

B&B: Blowing the whistle on Dream Team

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA — Friday, 15 Apr, 2022

BILL Mildenhall is one of Australian basketball's greatest referees and arguably the most respected in NBL history. He's done it all when it comes to officiating - including ref the Dream Team in Barcelona 1992 - so Brad Rosen and I were thrilled to get him revisiting Memory Lane for this Brad&Boti podcast.

Fingers crossed for a strong finish

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Friday, 1 Apr, 2022

IN a season when it was definitely possible - if not probable - to lose complete faith in women's basketball in Australia, at least the WNBL had its MVP Anneli Maley right and tomorrow's Grand Finalists also promising finishing a dreadful year on a strong note. It was more than what we could have hoped for.
