WNBL awards almost an SA clean sweep

In: WNBL, SA — Monday, 6 Mar, 2023

THERE's been more than a few lean years nationally for players and teams out of South Australia, so an almost clean sweep of the individual accolades in the WNBL - led by Cayla George's MVP victory - has gone some distance toward restoring some pride to a state struggling to vaguely resemble its former glories.

DEAR Reader. Here it is. Why the Basketball On The Internet website has been idle for more than two months. If you don’t really give a flying frapdoodle (thank you Bill Palmer), that’s easy, skip this link and just move on back to the stories as they tumble in over the coming days.

A FORMER captain of the Canberra Capitals, a WNBL championship winner in Adelaide Lightning's greatest ever team and one of our most unsung yet successful international coaches, Cherie Cordoba joins Brad Rosen and I for our Brad&Boti podcast.

THERE'S still time but do not delay! Father's Day is upon us once again on Sunday but it's not too late to rush to your local bookstore and buy dad the one gift he was too bashful to officially request!

Get in early for dad's big day

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

Taking a (short) break

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Misc — Friday, 15 Jul, 2022

JUST finished a terrific project for WILKINSON PUBLISHING so taking a few days off to recharge the batteries. Guessing you'll survive without the website's take on what should have been a Boomers' avalanche over Saudi Arabia. Looking forward to being back next week. Cheers all.

FINALLY and at long last! Adelaide has its first and only 24-hour basketball training facility at SHOOT HQ in suburban Beverley, all courtesy of "the Coach" Joey Wright.
