BOB'S CORNER: Our USA resident and regular correspondent BOB CRAVEN has all the big news this week, mainly about scoring! First it's Caitlin Clark raising the NCAA scoring bar for women AND men, then it is LeBron James going above and beyond the 40,000 NBA points mark. remarkable stuff.

Pinder tears up JJ's scouting report

In: NBL — Saturday, 9 Mar, 2024

KEANU Pinder last night ruined Tasmania's gameplan with a career-best outside-the-arc blitz JackJumpers coach Scott Roth - nor anyone else - saw coming and which ensured Perth would head to Hobart and Monday's Game 2 full of confidence nursing a 1-0 NBL Semi Final Series lead.


Choking happened before screwing for beaten Hawks

In: NBL — Friday, 8 Mar, 2024

YES, there is absolutely no question the referees last night screwed Illawarra down the stretch of regulation before Melbourne brushed the Hawks aside in overtime. But it's just as key how badly the Hawks choked, lacked on-court leadership and played with abject fear as Matthew Dellavedova led his crew to a 1-0 NBL semi final lead.

Action Jackson soars and Flyers feast

In: WNBL — Thursday, 7 Mar, 2024

SHE is Australian basketball's G.O.A.T. - Greatest Of All Time - and even at 42, you had to know those competitive instincts would kick in for a WNBL semi final Game 3 decider. With 38 points and 11 rebounds, she absolutely dominated proceedings as only she can, Southside beating Melbourne 93-77.

Time off or time now? Hawks face a challenge

In: NBL — Thursday, 7 Mar, 2024

HAS the FIBA break and wait on the "play-in tournament - a.k.a the top six eliminations - taken the edge off regular season champion Melbourne as it prepares for tonight's opening salvo of its semi final series against Justin Robinson and the surging Illawarra Hawks? 


Flyers can expect G.O.A.T. to bump Boomers to oblivion

In: WNBL — Wednesday, 6 Mar, 2024

MELBOURNE Boomers fans, be warned. If your team beats Southside tonight in Game 3 of the WNBL's semi final series, it will need to stop the G.O.A.T., Lauren Jackson to do it. Remember what happened at the FIBA World Cup in 2022 when, at 41, she thought she was playing her last international?

The Brave and the Bold - Hawks advance

In: NBL — Tuesday, 5 Mar, 2024

THE ILLAWARRA Hawks last night won an outstanding KO NBL playoff game over an incredibly durable and resilient NZ Breakers outfit to keep alive their fairytale-like story by advancing to the best-of-three semi final series against Melbourne, Justin Robinson perfect from the stripe.

   


Can Breakers pluck plucky Hawks? Questions, questions

In: NBL — Monday, 4 Mar, 2024

IS there enough petrol left in the NZ Breakers' tank to take down Illawarra tonight in Wollongong and then actually give regular season NBL champion Melbourne anything of a semi final series? The answer lies in two hyphenated names - Jackson-Cartwright and McDowell-White.
