WNBL Team of the Wk 13: Unlucky 13? No, focused 10

In: WNBL — Tuesday, 13 Feb, 2024

WE'RE departing from our customary and extremely popular WNBL Team of the Week format this round to branch out into new areas - international areas frankly. Because while they haven't had the opportunity to capture the mainstream public's imagination in the way the Matildas did, our Opals have certainly been the focus of women's basketball fans nationwide this week.

HERE it all is, wrapped up in one nice big bundle - all our NBL match summaries from Round 19. If you missed any of them, well they're all here in one place now. And perhaps it is time to pose the question, why do referees have such short fuses with polite gentlemen such as Mike Kelly?

Our Opals today launched a blitzkrieg from which Germany never recovered as the Australian women's team qualified for Paris, marching into their 8th straight Olympic Games and 10th in 40 years since debuting at Los Angeles 1984, Isobel Borlase headlining the "new kids".


Bryce is Right, Jackies bite: NBL

In: NBL — Sunday, 11 Feb, 2024

BRYCE Cotton put on a show in Perth as the Wildcats ultimately comfortably eliminated Cairns from the post-season and Tasmania flexed its muscles in front of a 10,000-plus crowd at John Cain Arena, formally consigning South East Melbourne to the club's historic first last-placed finish in its NBL life.

PARKER Jackson-Cartwright last night staked his case as the NBL's premier "Little Big Man", leading New Zealand to a huge home win over Illawarra, making tomorrow's Hawks' trip to Sydney massive and the Breakers' visit to Melbourne also critical. In Brisbane, the Bullets ended Adelaide's play-in bid.
