OK. Now the NBL is rolling

In: NBL — Saturday, 30 Sep, 2023

SENSATIONAL. It took until the third game of the NBL’s new season, but fans finally saw a cracker, Perth Wildcats staving off Tasmania JackJumpers 101-95, Jordan Usher delighting the 12,000-plus at RAC Arena with a club record 35-point debut at 65 per cent.

Great night. Pity about the basketball

In: NBL — Friday, 29 Sep, 2023

WHAT a ghastly tip-off to the NBL season. Melbourne United, shooting at a mind-numbing 35 per cent, saw off crosstown rival South East Melbourne 82-67, who, while managing to deliver a total only Aaron Fearne could love, shot the ball at an unconscionable 29 per cent. Magnificent opening night crowd, celebrity row fully in tow and Scottie Pippen along for the ride, it sure turned bumpy fast.

In: NBL — Monday, 29 May, 2023

HAVE you been following the NBL long enough to remember the "Mitsubishi Challenge"? It was some 23 years back when the motoring giant backed the game for almost a decade in Australia and - like Hungry Jack's - it is back on board as a major partner of our burgeoning league.

In: NBL, WNBL — Friday, 26 May, 2023

Starling a star signing for Sixers

In: NBL, SA — Wednesday, 24 May, 2023

WHEN the talk turns to "mature-age recruits", few will top the Adelaide 36ers recent signing of star American NBL1 Central forward Alex Starling, who as a recently naturalised Aussie, will make his long overdue NBL debut as a 34-year-old warrior in Season 2023-24.

In: NBL — Saturday, 6 May, 2023

SHOWING they were Tasmanians first and AFL footballers second, Richmond's Jack Riewoldt and Collingwood's Jeremy Howe defied the unspoken footy law to ignore the NBL and on Thursday night's AFL 360 Plus acknowledged the huge difference the JackJumpers made to sport on the Apple Isle.
