ON the cusp of elimination, down Opals Olympian Sara Blicavs (leg) for the rest of the season and Tall Ferns centre Penina Davidson (calf), Melbourne not only dug deep but practically buried Southside 88-67 in Game 2 of their WNBL best-of-three semi final series, Naz Hillmon perfect from the floor.

Unbreakable, NZ the lionhearts and Ants on the march

In: NBL — Thursday, 29 Feb, 2024

NO Anthony Lamb. Will McDowell-White playing hurt and fouling out. Zylan Cheatham hurt, then rolling an ankle, then returning to play hurt, Mantas Rubstavicius tossed out of the game. Finn Delany a shadow of himself. Jaysus. What else did these careless Kings need to show heart? Didn't matter. Parker Jackson-Cartwright had all the answers.

SOUTHSIDE veteran and Australian basketball's G.O.A.T. Lauren Jackson turned back the clock to lead her team to a 1-0 best-of-three WNBL semi final series lead over Melbourne, but unsung import Jasmine Dickey was the X-factor the Boomers did not calculate, scoring 16 points.
