NBL Rankings, Tips 19: Time's up for pretenders

In: NBL — Thursday, 8 Feb, 2024

HOW massive is this penultimate round of the NBL regular season? The finals fates of Adelaide and Cairns, both on 15 losses, hang on away wins in Brisbane and Perth respectively. And this also could signal Sydney's official despatch from its historical second threepeat bid - and cut short coach Mahmoud Abdelfattah's two-year contract.

Brazilian close shave on cards for Opals

In: Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 8 Feb, 2024

OK, I admit it. I'm nervous about the Opals in Brazil facing the hosts, Germany and Serbia from tomorrow morning, an Olympic berth for the Paris Games at stake. Barring the unforeseen, the Australian women's team - 2022 FIBA World Cup Bronze Medallists - really only need win one game and should qualify.

IF you missed any of NBL Round 18's match summaries, here they are for you all in one place! How's that for convenience? And how's this for ridiculous? The NBL's Games Review Panel today gave Tasmania's Will Magnay a one-game suspension or a $1,550 fine for "unduly rough play" against Cairns.

NBL TotW18: Finals hat-trick locked away

In: NBL — Monday, 5 Feb, 2024

ILLAWARRA, Tasmania, Melbourne and New Zealand enjoyed unblemished Round 18 NBL performances to set themselves up as the four-runners (see what I did there?) for our highly-coveted, often fought over, always cherished accolade as our Team of the Week.

In: NBL — Sunday, 4 Feb, 2024

TASMANIA took a giant leap toward sealing third spot on the NBL ladder as Adelaide hit the wall in Hobart, and New Zealand's post-season picnic plans stayed alive with a Lamb-less win in Perth, the Breakers taking the edge off the post-game #53 uniform retirement party for Wildcats' legend Damian Martin.

Hawks fly into four, plucky Phoenix fleeced: NBL

In: NBL — Sunday, 4 Feb, 2024

ILLAWARRA levelled its record at 12-12 and threw Brisbane (now 12-14) under the bus when Gary Clark shone and the Hawks shut down Nathan Sobey, ahead of South East Melbourne again showing great pluck, only losing to NBL leader Melbourne by 16 in a Throwdown which had great potential for a blow-out.
