Brad&Boti: Crocodile tears for Sydney

In: NBL, WNBL — Friday, 19 Jan, 2024

POOR Brad&Boti podcast colleague, past Kings captain Brad Rosen, had a mixed NBL round when he described Sydney's loss to Adelaide akin to watching paint dry, then was back in full fanboy mode as it smashed New Zealand. Fortunately Sydney's Flames saved their WNBL season after also going 1-1 over the round.

Lat for the win as Hawks fall: NBL

In: NBL — Friday, 19 Jan, 2024

THEY went into the match without Sam Waardenburg, Bobi Klintman and Jonah Antonio, then had Akoldah Gak, Taran Armstrong and Tajhere McCall foul out, Bul Kuol and Lat Mayen on four fouls in a 28-16 disparity, and Illawarra shooting 32 free throws to Cairns' 11. It may not be the Taipans' greatest victory in their NBL life, but it's surely up there.

In: NBL — Wednesday, 17 Jan, 2024

LAST round in the NBL easily could have been dubbed "Brain Fade Round". First Tassie didn't foul late against Brisbane. Then Sydney left its big boy pants on the plane in Adelaide. Zylan Cheatham tried to call an on-court time-out, Jordon Crawford took a three when his team had time to win with an easier basket.

WNBL Rankings, Tips 12: The Spirit is willing

In: WNBL — Wednesday, 17 Jan, 2024

CAN our Team of the Week, Bendigo, make a run at the WNBL playoffs? At 6-8 the Spirit have two games in hand on Sydney (8-8) and if pundits rate the Flames a top-four chance, then why not Bendigo? Southside and Perth are two teams in the hunt so this round is huge for Kennedy Kereama's crew.
