In: Boomers & Opals, NBA — Saturday, 20 Aug, 2022

BOB'S CORNER: Our US and Seattle-based - though hardly Seattle-biased (ahem...) correspondent BOB CRAVEN, a former ACT import himself, is tipping the Storm's Breanna Stewart will win the WNBA's MVP award. But he IS basing that on some solid evidence.

WE'RE back! Well, compatriot Brad Rosen is back from his overseas family holiday and we had so much to catch up on for our return Brad&Boti podcast.

In: Boomers & Opals — Sunday, 14 Aug, 2022

ONE of basketball's very few remaining dedicated journalists, the Daily Telegraph's Matt Logue, this week won the Peter Frilingos award for outstanding sports journalism at the Kennedy Awards. It was specifically for his gritty and gutsy coverage of the pre-Olympic events which led to the end of Liz Cambage's career as an Opal.

BRONZE-medal winning Boomers forward Nick Kay returns to the Australian men's lineup for yet another window - the fourth, so far - in the World Cup qualifiers later this month, taking on the might of FIBA's 106th-ranked Bahrain before hosting Iran (ranked 23) in Bendigo.

The G.O.A.T. is back and so are the Opals

In: Boomers & Opals — Wednesday, 10 Aug, 2022

ON the same day women's tennis' G.O.A.T. Serena Williams announced her retirement at 41, Australian basketball's G.O.A.T. Lauren Jackson at 41 was selected in the Opals team for the 2022 FIBA World Cup next month in Sydney. "Life begins at 40"? That may be an understatement.

Bob's Corner: The G.O.A.T. is in the house

BOB'S CORNER: Seattle-based US correspondent BOB CRAVEN could not have been happier to see the G.O.A.T. - Lauren Jackson - back "at home" for a big WNBA fixture in which her contemporary Sue Bird and LJ's playing clone Breanna Stewart both starred and featured prominently.

Get in early for dad's big day

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Tuesday, 26 Jul, 2022

THE NBL may be busy with its draw for the 2022-23 season, open roof game on December 23, Christmas Eve matches and even a breakthrough Christmas Day (Night?) fixture. But coming up much faster is Father's Day and maybe this year it's time to start thinking early to find dad the ideal gift.
