Thirstday - JJs 'yay' to AFL, Euroleague and more

In: NBL, WNBL — Thursday, 4 May, 2023

CONSPICUOUS amid all the bellicose bliss of the AFL's announcement of a 19th club in Tasmania was the absence of any reference to the NBL's JackJumpers - the  success of which has sparked the unprecedented revival and interest in basketball on the island.

Flyers grounded as Fire wreaks havoc

In: WNBL — Sunday, 19 Mar, 2023

WNBL regular season champion Townsville, rolling into Game 1 of the Grand Final Series on a 14-win streak, last night humiliated Southside 94-63 - the biggest win in a championship game or series since the league launched in 1981. To say Flyers coach Cheryl Chambers has a job to salvage this series is a massive understatement.

Flyers-Fire Final after narrow escape

In: WNBL — Thursday, 16 Mar, 2023
