In: WNBL — Monday, 26 Feb, 2024

THE Perth Lynx deserve a great deal of credit for bursting back into the WNBL Final Four, right at the season's eleventh hour and in so doing, not only ensured 2023-24 would have the same semi finalists as 2022-23, but they would close the regular season as our final Team of the Week.

In: WNBL — Saturday, 24 Feb, 2024

THERE have been some extraordinary final regular season rounds in the WNBL's long history, but few would come close to this one, the return of import superstar Aari McDonald squeezing Perth Lynx back into the Final Four at big-spending Sydney's expense, and only after the final match was played.

Honeymoon period over for Ninnis at 36ers

In: NBL — Thursday, 22 Feb, 2024

SCOTT Ninnis at Adelaide 36ers has finally been allowed to shred the word "interim" from his extensive coaching resume, the Sixers this week confirming a new two-year deal for the only man to play an intimate role in all four of the club's NBL championships and much better equipped to improve on his previous stint as head coach.

In: WNBL — Wednesday, 21 Feb, 2024

OMGRarely if ever has a WNBL regular season come down to so many permutations, from which club will finish top, to which of four teams battling for two spots will make it into the post-season, to which player from MVP finalists Sami Whitcomb, Jordin Canada, Lauren Nicholson, Isobel Borlase or Jade Melbourne will claim the coveted award?

In: WNBL — Tuesday, 20 Feb, 2024

OUR WNBL Team of the Week for Round 14, which some might argue also could easily have been our TotW for Round 13, was the stand-out across a torrid and very meaningful series of matches, where, ultimately, some international preseason Spirit truly paid off as the fight for the Four intensified.

NBL TotW20: Coaches to the fore closing reg season

In: NBL — Tuesday, 20 Feb, 2024

THAT was one hell of a close to the NBL regular season, only Cairns, Tasmania, Sydney and Adelaide escaping Round 20 with a clean slate, while Melbourne, Illawarra and New Zealand contrasted great home wins with very interesting road defeats. Our Team of the Week was a tough call, last week's winner Perth this round going 0-2!
