OPALS coach Brendan Joyce has today named a new 34-player squad ahead of Rio Olympic qualification (in August) to allow for expected absences and injuries.
MARIANNA Tolo - no surprise there - is the Opals' latest acquisition by the WNBA, secured by Staples Center-based Los Angeles Sparks. It is official.
EXPECT Marianna Tolo to be the next Opals star from last year's Bronze Medal FIBA World Championship campaign to be recruited into the WNBA.
LAUREN Jackson is the most successful women's player in Australia's basketball history but her latest injury setback must surely now send a message the end is very near.
HAD the pleasure yesterday of having lunch with new Basketball Australia CEO Anthony Moore, one of the stars of last week's Pete's Bar Lunch and a breath of hope for us long-suffering fans of the world's greatest game.
CAL Bruton and Brendan Joyce on the same court was trouble. On the same bill as lunch speakers? Hold onto your party hats!
THERE appears to have been a one-man campaign to spank Australia's media for its lack of presence at FIBA's recent World Cup and World Championship campaigns.
THEY were great, there’s no other word for it. These Opals did us proud winning Bronze at FIBA’s World Championship for Women, redefining the meaning of “team”.
WE had high hopes but I suspect most of us feared our gallant Opals might not have enough firepower to get over the line – this time – against the USA.
OUR mighty Aussie Opals - and I call them "mighty" because Naismith knows this performance in Turkey has been way above expectations - can add Canada's scalp tonight and march on to the semi finals.
AS grateful as I am - and I'm sure are many of you - at the ABC's coverage of our Boomers and Opals this year, I have to take exception at a couple of obvious improvements the network could have made.
NOW that’s the way to open a World Championship! No second-guessing, no self doubt, no let up defensively, the Opals opened in most impressive fashion tonight against Cuba.
IF I was a betting man, I’d be putting the house and land package on Brisbane and Tassie being NBL fixtures in 2015-16.
IF you have been wondering where the FIBA investigation into Australia's alleged tanking against Angola at the World Cup currently sits, well so has the rest of the world.
LET’S be truly clear on what Sandy Brondello achieved today.
THEY did it! Penny Taylor and Erin Phillips today joined Patty Mills, Aron Baynes and Joe Ingles as players to win Championships at the highest club levels in the world this year.
HALL of Famer KEN COLE writes for Basketball On The Internet with a further message for the Boomers: I'VE thought about this a lot prior to the World Cup and it's clarified my thinking.
IT IS a crying shame Anthony Moore doesn't take his seat as Basketball Australia CEO until October 13 because right now our federation should be showing some onions and seeking legal advice on Goran Dragic's defamatory tweet.
EXPECT the Opals to again shake the FIBA World Championship for Women to its foundations, despite the absence of many of its long-revered faces.
DEAR FIBA, You owe Basketball Australia, the Australian Boomers and the Australian public an apology.
