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.

By George! Cayla is killing it!

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Monday, 27 Feb, 2023

MELBOURNE Boomers and WNBL stalwart Cayla George is enjoying an MVP season and should join contemporaries such as Suzy Batkovic and Abby Bishop as a winner of the coveted individual award this season.

Temporarily Out of Order? No longer!

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals, NBA, SA, Flashbacks, Misc — Wednesday, 15 Feb, 2023

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. But if you enjoy true horror...

Rd4 WNBL: Spirit atop the tree alone

In: WNBL — Sunday, 4 Dec, 2022

BENDIGO in this new Kennedy Kereama era, remains the WNBL's only undefeated team as it sits atop the ladder after road wins in Townsville and Sydney, the Flames and Canberra yet to break through but set to do so in Round 5 where they will square off in Canberra.

B&B: We're overdue for our first super-hero(ine)

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 1 Dec, 2022

SHE's a six-time MVP of the WNBL, a five-time league champion, seven-time All Star, four-time leading scorer and played at three Olympic Games for Australia's Opals, returning home a medallist from Athens, Beijing and London. But despite Brad Rosen willing it, Suzy Batkovic was not born in Sydney.

Rd3 WNBL23: Home cooking a serious issue

In: WNBL — Sunday, 20 Nov, 2022

NO-ONE is likely to argue the peripherals of the WNBL have no correlation with the realities of the high standard ball we see on court. Not having a WNBL app, easily the worst TV production values ever seen on the 9NOW coverage and the long-term bug-bear of funding (or lack thereof) leaving many home-town officials calling games.
