McCall's rib tickler far from fine: NBL

In: NBL — Friday, 2 Feb, 2024

POPULAR Cairns Taipans import Tahjere McCall last night let himself down, let his club down, let the league down and let his legion of fans down with his vile and violent act against JackJumpers centre Will Magnay as Tasmania sent the Snakes' 2023-24 NBL season into mothballs with their 94-86 road win.

NBL Rankings, Tips 18: End of the road looms

In: NBL — Thursday, 1 Feb, 2024

THE top-six playoff/play-in quest could hit the end of the road for a couple of teams in NBL Round 18 with teams competing for post-season participation squaring off, Cairns-Tasmania tonight, Adelaide's two matches pivotal, Illawarra and Brisbane on the brink and New Zealand desperate for the head of NBL arch rival Perth.

WNBL Wrap 13: Top four race intensifies

In: WNBL — Wednesday, 31 Jan, 2024

BENDIGO kept alive its WNBL playoff hopes with twin wins in Round 13, Melbourne Boomers and Southside Flyers virtually put Perth out of contention, and 2022 FIBA World Cup All Star Five selection Stephanie Talbot made a triumphant return, igniting Lightning while a cyclone shut down another key fixture.

NBL, WNBL - Time for zero tolerance re referees

In: NBL, WNBL — Wednesday, 31 Jan, 2024

BOTH our elite men's and women's national leagues like to erroneously claim the mantle as the world's #2 competitions. What world is that? Uranus? Because that's such a load of crap and the biggest single reason now is because our officiating has not kept pace with our playing standards. And there is zero public accountability.

 


Brad & Boti: Opals, Paris, WNBL and NBL

In: NBL, WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Tuesday, 30 Jan, 2024

IT WAS all largely quiet on the WNBL front this week past, cyclones notwithstanding, but Brad Rosen and I talked Opals and Paris Olympic qualification before we reviewed Round 17 of NBL action and looked forward to what the rest of the season promises.

Ninnis ripe for fulltime NBL return. But where?

In: NBL — Tuesday, 30 Jan, 2024

 ADELAIDE's public inaction on retaining interim NBL coach Scott Ninnis looks set to backfire with at least two rival clubs ready to target him as part of their 2024-25 plans, the 36ers pontificating while waiting on the future of New Zealand Breakers head coach Mody Maor.  


Is it me or anyone else? NBL Rd17 Wrap in full

In: NBL — Monday, 29 Jan, 2024

THERE's a few questions and observations to lead off the overall Round 17 NBL Wrap before we provide you the convenience of reading (or ignoring) our match reviews, compiled here all in one place. But first, how boring is the match commentary on every game promoting the forthcoming "No Bull Tour"?

NBL TotW17: Obvious candidates fall away

In: NBL — Monday, 29 Jan, 2024

THE opening match of NBL Round 17 looked as if it comfortably gave us our Team of the Week - South East Melbourne Phoenix - and our Team of the Weak As Pi$$ in Sydney. Easy. Time to put our feet up and relax ... but then Illawarra beats Perth, then Perth beats SEM. Then Sydney beats Melbourne! How infuriating!  


NSW double closes big round: NBL

In: NBL — Sunday, 28 Jan, 2024

IT WAS a big day for NSW's two NBL clubs, both in the thick of the battle for top-six berths, Illawarra battling back from a double-digit deficit to hurt New Zealand's chances and Sydney burying the memory of its pathetic demise at South East by beating Victoria's higher-ranked outfit Melbourne, Makuach Maluach again to the rescue.

Sixers shine, Phoenix fight it out: NBL

In: NBL — Sunday, 28 Jan, 2024

ADELAIDE last night took its 2024 record to 5-1, to 6-5 under interim coach Scott Ninnis and to an NBL outside finals chance 10-14 overall when it finally skinned the Taipans, undermanned South East again heroic but going down fighting at home to Perth, Mitch Creek once more leading the way.
