According to the tv feature about her that was aired before the game, she's 6'8 ("and rising"), but your point remains true. (look out for that video in the Wings thread later in the week)
George had a great game. That was the tv game and it was actually quite a low-standard anticlimax given that it was the 2 title favourites in battle, but Cayla was the exception.

The Courtney Williams show I attended this afternoon was all kinds of fun Smile (even though Sydney won the game quite comfortably)

Liz managed to stay in the game for 30 minutes. That is impressive though Laughing

Indeed! She wasn't exactly brimming with energy in those late minutes, but yes, she was out there.
(Seriously though, it has been a long time for her without playing matches. How she's going in the latter half of the season will be more relevant)

What's Tupaea'a injury? I was slightly intrigued on maybe seeing her in camp next year, but my guess is if it's serious, she will be delayed.

Did Hooper talk about her experience of probably (did pilight ever confirm?) being the first WNBA player to be on 4 teams in one season?

I don't want to get in trouble with the broadcaster, so I'm going to delay these by a week each time.

Here's the Round 1 game between Melbourne Boomers and Townsville Fire:

She has called the first two. As a commentator she really ... was a great player.

Based on what we've heard from LJ over the years, it must be really restrictive on her not to be able to swear while describing the game. Smile

She is indeed. And actually, after losing to Bendigo by 35, we played them at home on Thursday night and smashed them by 27 so it's all good now Very Happy
(... until this evening when our little team takes on Liz & the Boomers. That might not be pretty. Just hoping to "contain" her to < 50 Razz )

This weekend's TV game is Townsville Fire - now with added Sydney Wiese - @ Dandenong Rangers.

Round 3

Plenty of thrillers this weekend, with previously 0-2 Dandenong the big movers. Laia Palau suited up for the first time and made an immediate impact, solid in the first game, and hitting the game winner today.
Apparently Courtney Williams blocked Liz Cambage 3 times on Saturday night (would have loved to see that!), but the Boomers got it done in OT.
Sounds like a lot of injuries happening too, unfortunately. O'Hea with a calf strain, Duever an ACL tear, Ott a stress fracture - and that's just Melbourne. Hamblin a back injury, and still waiting on details of Laney's injury. Sad

Townsville 63 (Batkovic 22p 12r, Murray 11p, George 10p 15r, Wiese 7p)
Sydney 66 (Ebzery 22p, Taylor 19p 10r, Wilson 11p 5r, Hamson 5p 5r, Snell 3p 5r 6a)
Boxscore

Perth 106 (Kunek 23p, Ciabattoni 21p, Whitcomb 17p 5r 9a 4s, Standish 16p, Williams 14p 6r 5a, Burton 8p 6r)
Bendigo 79 (Griffin 22p 10r, Laney 15p, Payne 15p, Banham 11p)
Boxscore

Adelaide 79 (OT) (Planeta 21p 9r 4s, Novosel 19p 6a, Bishop 16p 11r, Seekamp 8p 5r 6a, Hamblin 2p 6r)
Bendigo 75 (Richards 22p 8r, Griffin 17p 16r, Banham 17p 5r, Payne 12p)
Boxscore

Dandenong 86 (Mijovic 28p 8r, St Blicavs 15p 5a, Sa Blicavs 12p 6r, Pedersen 10p 13r, Lavey 7p 7a, Palau 7p 4r 5a)
Townsville 69 (Batkovic 21p 10r 6a, Murray 13p 5r, Wilson 11p, George 8p 9r 5a, Wiese 5p)
Boxscore

Melbourne 79 (OT) (Cambage 23p 23r, Smart 16p 7r 5a, Garrick 15p 5r, Purcell 9p 6r, Cole 6p 8a)
Perth 77 (Williams 20p 7r 4s 4b, Whitcomb 18p 10r, 6s, Standish 18p, Burton 8p, Kunek 7p 5r)
Boxscore

Canberra 76 (Wehrung 19p 5r, Hurst 12p 4r 8a, Bass 12p, Scherf 9p 7r, Jarry 8p, Hooper 6p 5r)
Dandenong 77 (Sa Blicavs 24p 13r 5a, Pedersen 19p 11r, Roberts 10p, St Blicavs 9p 5r, Mijovic 8p 4r 4a)
Boxscore


Ladder:
Melbourne Boomers 4-1
Adelaide Lightning 3-1
Sydney Uni Flames 3-1
Townsville Fire 2-2
Dandenong Rangers 2-2

Glad to see Palau healthy enough to play and contribute. So often when a fading star goes to a new place at the tail end of their career, they end up breaking down too easily to show what they can do. But now she's playing hopefuly she can stay in one piece.

And Perth won a game! Wink

^ Definitely the most important part of the round! That was a fun one. A 62 point reversal from 5 days previous.

Palau is smart enough to contribute with her leadership and savyness even though she will always be one of the slowest on the court Laughing

Quote:
Down by one with 13 seconds to go, star forward Asia Taylor spurned a chance to regain the lead when she missed two free throws before turning the ball over on the next possession.

The WNBA import then committed an unsportsmanlike foul on the next play, allowing Rangers star Stephanie Blicavs to seal the win at the free throw line.

It was a disappointing end for Taylor, who has lit up the competition this year, but she still finished as Sydney's best with another impressive stat line of 24 points, six rebounds and three assists.

She isn't starting in the WNBL this season, which doesn't bode well for a WNBA career.

In the US, a Snickers without nuts is a Milky Way. Outside the US, it's a Mars bar. What's called a Milky Way in the rest of the world is a Three Musketeers bar in the US.

Round 4 game between Dandenong Rangers and Sydney Uni Flames, which went down to the wire. Asia Taylor & Kayla Pedersen (or Peddersen, according to the commentators) were influential for their respective teams.

Luuuc, did you get to see all of Zitina Aokuso's minutes the other day? Any thoughts? She might get a mention in an upcoming article that I am writing.

I did. I was at that game. In which Perth blitzed the Fire Smile
She didn't have much of an impact in that game but she's a good young player. A post player who plays with energy. I'm a fan. Hopefully she can expand her game, because while she's athletic she's not big enough to be a 5 at a higher level. Exciting prospect. And training all season against Batkovic & George is a good situation for her.
I've managed to see a bit of Magbegor recently too and she has been impressive. She'll be an Opal in no time.

Based on the volume of hype, wouldn't be surprised if she's in Spain next year, at least on the end of the bench. Might as well take her, even as one of the bench players who doesn't play, if she's clearly a big part of the future.

Only problem is that the 5 is a position that's a no-brainer to fill (Cambage + Tolo), whereas we might want to have options at other spots. But all else being equal, yeah I'd be trying to take her along.

In bad news though, Kelsey Griffin was badly injured in Bendigo's win over Melbourne, and will apparently need season-ending surgery on her hip. Massive loss for Bendigo. Hopefully it's something she can make a quick and full recovery from.

Round 5

Good news: Laney, Williams & Ebzery all returned from injury, and O'Hea is close
Bad news: Kelsey Griffin is out for the season as mentioned above. Early estimate is 3-4 months recovery time.
Sydney continued their good run of form, while Adelaide & Canberra went 0-2. Melbourne looked headed for a winless round too, but a 23-9 4th quarter (Cambage 13 of them) got them a gutsy win in this evening's Melbourne Derby.

Round 6

Jenna O'Hea returned to action and had an immediate impact, with Melbourne upsetting Sydney, and then the next day they defeated Adelaide on the back of a massive game by Liz Cambage.
Bendigo are understandably struggling without Kelsey Griffin. Bad time to visit Townsville, the league's toughest place to win.
Canberra pushed Perth for 3 quarters until Courtney Williams engaged beast mode in the final quarter. That was fun to watch.
Sara Blicavs suffered an ACL rupture vs Adelaide.

Bendigo 75 (Banham 21p, Payne 14p, Laney 13p 6r 8a, Oliver 8p 7r, Richards 6p 6r)

Update on Sara Blicavs:
Quote:
Sara Blicavs’ right knee injury that she suffered in last Friday’s loss to the Adelaide Lightning is worse than first thought.
While originally believing Blicavs had just torn the ACL, surgery has revealed she has also suffered a torn meniscus and fractured knee. Blicavs went under the knife on Monday night and will miss at least 12 months of basketball.
The setback means the 24-year-old will miss the rest of this WNBL season, along with the start of the next one. Furthermore, she will be unavailable for national selection for the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the 2018 FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup.
It also means Blicavs’ WNBA ambitions will be on hold for at least the next year.

I suspect that Cambage is no longer on Bass's Christmas Card list after today
