The perfect stocking stuffer

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, SA, Misc — Friday, 26 Nov, 2021

THANK you very much from the bottom of my heart to the people already purchasing copies of my basketball-based memoir "A Type of Life" which, I am reliably informed, has been flying off the shelves at Dymocks.

And yes, unfortunately we've stayed offline

APOLOGIES to regular readers and visitors here but as you will have noticed, your author has stayed out of commission for several weeks despite promising the website's imminent return. Sadly it's been the result of a series of back spasms that laid me out for several weeks and kept my chiropractor extremely busy.

Apologies for the temporary delay...

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Wednesday, 27 Oct, 2021

DEAR regulars, apologies for the recent lack of B.O.T.I. coverage but have had a lot on the old plate. One daughter's wedding and marriage, another one's birthday, the imminent release of my memoir. In the meantime, great basketball stuff has been piling up but back on deck now and will start clearing those same decks shortly!

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

Asia Cup: Just enough Kiwi polish

In: Boomers & Opals — Friday, 1 Oct, 2021

SAMI Whitcomb led the charge and Australia showed just enough polish to hold off New Zealand 72-61 in their Asia Cup qualification final to advance to a semi final showdown against nemesis Japan in Jordan tomorrow.

Asia Cup: China syndrome in Opals meltdown

In: Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 30 Sep, 2021

SHOOTING a lamentable 34 per cent from the floor and belted 47-30 on the boards, Australia suffered a second-half meltdown against China at the Asia Cup to lose 64-82 in Jordan to one of the genuine Gold Medal fancies.

Asia Cup: Opals flip the script

In: Boomers & Opals — Wednesday, 29 Sep, 2021

FROM the moment Opals captain Sami Whitcomb came down the floor and opened Australia's Asia Cup contest against Philippines with an all-swish 3-pointer, everyone in the venue in Jordan knew the script was about to be flipped by the Aussies.

Asia Cup: Opals make tapas of Taipei

In: Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 28 Sep, 2021

NO-ONE expected Chinese Taipeo to show the pluck it did, jumping Australia's reburbished Opals and forcing them into a much tougher fight than expected before they prevailed 76-65 overnight in Jordan to open their FIBA Asia Cup campaign.
