JackJumpers face a massive leap now

In: NBL — Monday, 9 May, 2022

DEJAN Vasiljevic's match-winning 3-pointer to give Sydney an unassailable 90-86 lead - and win - in Game 2 of the NBL Grand Final series now leaves the JackJumpers down 0-2 and facing a labourious uphill battle to even keep alive this best-of-five championship series. Frankly, it's now going to take a minor miracle.

Tasmania still needs three wins

In: NBL — Saturday, 7 May, 2022

SO what has changed? The Tasmania JackJumpers still need to win three games in the NBL Grand Final's best-of-seven series to claim the island's first championship since Launceston Casino City shocked the league in 1981. That was also exactly where the JJs stood BEFORE Game 1 against the Sydney Kings at Qudos Bank Arena.

THERE'S no question the Tasmania JackJumpers are the good news story of the week /month/year or maybe all-time for the NBL if not all pro sports in Oz! Brad Rosen and I reached out to David Bartlett - a.k.a. the Overlord of the Insects as the state's 43rd Premier - to bring us uptospeed on how this success has affected the island.

On the march! Ants ready to stand and deliver

In: NBL — Wednesday, 4 May, 2022

WHY not us? It is one of the catch-cries of this incredible Tasmania JackJumpers outfit which has stormed its way into the Grand Final Series against Sydney Kings in its debut NBL season. And while possibly everyone outside of Kings fans would love this Cinderella story to have a fairytale finish, it does have an X-factor.

The Greatest (NBL) Story Ever Told

In: NBL — Monday, 2 May, 2022

MAKE no mistake and have no illusions. The story of the Tasmania JackJumpers is one of the greatest Australian sporting stories ever told and certainly, unquestionably, the greatest NBL story ever told. It is the classic Cinderella tale and while we don't know if a fairytale finish is imminent, it already has the hallmarks of unparallelled greatness.

Kings on verge of final coronation

In: NBL — Sunday, 1 May, 2022

THE Sydney Kings will take some beating for the 2022 NBL crown after riding roughshod over a disappointing Illawarra Hawks team, coach Brian Goorjian calling the Game 1 semi final loss "embarrassing" before their Game 2 erasure led to rampant speculation he would be departing after two years at the helm.
