WNBL TotW14: Spirited revival continues unabated

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.

Yes, Adelaide Lightning beating Melbourne was a critical result for the Boomers' finals hopes, costing them a place in the Final Four for the first time in 2023-24.

Southside knocking off the Flames in Sydney to clinch their season-series in front of the season's largest crowd also was big.

And Perth, with Aari McDonald returning, breathing faint life back into its finals dreams by beating Canberra also was significant.

But wow, what about Bendigo?

First the Spirit hit Canberra and smack the Caps, Kelsey Griffin with a 24-point, 11-rebound double, Alicia Froling adding 23 points at 67 percent, Ally Wilson scoring 10, plus three rebounds, five assists, four steals, Kelly Wilson dishing nine assists to complement her 10 points.

On to Townsville and the Spirit used the master water hose to dampen the Fire to the tune of 33 points. That's the Fire, the league leader and defending champion. In Townsville.

Ally Wilson led the rout with 22 points, 10 boards, two assists and a steal. Griffin went off for 21 points, 14 rebounds, five assists as finally, the work coach Kennedy Kereama, particularly with an exotic preseason schedule, put in paid off extremely handsomely.

Bendigo our Team of the Week? Nothing surer.
