By George! Cayla is killing it!

In: WNBL, Boomers & Opals — Monday, 27 Feb, 2023

MELBOURNE Boomers and WNBL stalwart Cayla George is enjoying an MVP season and should join contemporaries such as Suzy Batkovic and Abby Bishop as a winner of the coveted individual award this season.

In: NBL, Boomers & Opals — Thursday, 23 Feb, 2023

OUR Australia E team tips off tonight now in its second-last FIBA World Cup qualifying game - the Boomers have already qualified by the way - against Bahrain but this disruption to the NBL Championship Series truly is unconscionable and just makes winning their fourth title that much tougher for Mody Maor's New Zealand.

DEAR Reader. Here it is. Why the Basketball On The Internet website has been idle for more than two months.
