Brad&Boti: Southside are champs, Ants in danger

In: NBL, WNBL — Monday, 18 Mar, 2024

THE WNBL has crowned its 2023-24 champion and Melbourne has a 1-0 lead on Tasmania in the NBL Championship Series as former Sydney Kings assistant coach Brad Rosen and I thrash it all out in this week's Brad&Boti podcast, and we're not pulling any punches.

United stands and it's hit the road, Jackies

In: NBL — Sunday, 17 Mar, 2024

MELBOURNE flexed its NBL Championship muscles today, inflicting a virtual go-to-whoa tale of woe on Tasmania in Game 1 of the best-of-five Grand Final, Chris Goulding leading a long-range missile bombardment which sent the JackJumpers down into the bunker in a smouldering 104-81 heap.

Record rout as Southside wins in a flyer

In: WNBL — Sunday, 17 Mar, 2024

THEY had the Rolls Royce of Australian basketball, then watched a Mercedes drive off with the Rachael Sporn Medal as Southside left Perth choking on its fumes in Game 3 of the WNBL Grand Final Series, the Flyers' claiming their second crown but fifth overall including their history as Dandenong Rangers.


'Great escape' as Flyers send Final to a decider

In: WNBL — Friday, 15 Mar, 2024

A LITERAL last-gasp basket by Southside import Mercedes Russell last night forced the WNBL Grand Final Series to a deciding third game on Sunday in Melbourne as the Flyers flew the Perth coup 97-95 winners, barely escaping the desperate final minutes after leading all night.

Then there were two, United, Jackies for the crown

In: NBL — Thursday, 14 Mar, 2024

MELBOURNE versus Tasmania for the NBL crown. It's the best-of-five Grand Final Series most craved - other than the stampede of fans Illawarra corralled during its extraordinary season and post-season, or anyone living in Western Australia. Shea Ili and Jack McVeigh ensured we'd get it.

Brad&Boti: LJ to Olympics, WNBL Final, NBL Semis

In: NBL, WNBL — Wednesday, 13 Mar, 2024

THE WNBL already is into its Grand Final Series, Perth owning a 1-0 lead in the Best-of-3 Final. But the NBL settles its issues in a double-header basketball bonanza of Game 3 semi final deciders tonight, and Brad Rosen and I are down for it at our Brad&Boti podcast.

The odds don't look great for underdogs

In: NBL — Tuesday, 12 Mar, 2024

SHOULD it really be a surprise come NBL playoffs time that suddenly a number of factors fall the way of our Melbourne, Perth or Sydney-based clubs? They run marquee programs in our biggest cities, regularly drawing five-figure attendances. Places such as Hobart or Wollongong can't match that.

Milton 'the monster" as Jackies tame Wildcats

In: NBL — Monday, 11 Mar, 2024

DESPITE the outrageous intervention of the NBL's amorphous "Games Review Panel" which ridiculously and quite embarrassingly outed Tasmania centre Marcus Lee from its semi final Game 2 against Perth, Milton Doyle was an absolute monster as the JackJumpers levelled the series at 1-1 tonight in Hobart.

Hickey leaves a bruise as Hawks rally in G2

In: NBL — Sunday, 10 Mar, 2024

FOR the second time in their NBL best-of-three semi final series, Illawarra and Melbourne could not settle the issue in regulation but this time Will "Davo" Hickey, Gary Clark, Tyler Harvey and Sam Froling led their Hawks to a home 113-108 overtime win, sending it back to Melbourne for a decider on Wednesday.

That well? Yep. Atwell did that well and better!

In: WNBL — Sunday, 10 Mar, 2024

PERTH Lynx are one win away from claiming only the club's second WNBL championship and first since women's basketball legends Tom Maher, Michele Timms and Robyn Maher clinched the 1992 crown after Amy Atwell and crew today blew Southside off its home Melbourne floor 101-79.
