Miela Goodchild is going to Duke, so I am curious to see how Duke's second Australian WBB player performs. Goodchild played for Townsville last year.

As you may recall, the first Australian player who came to Duke (she came from AIS) did very, very well...

Pretty bad news for Luuuc's team... There just aren't Whitcomb-level Australians who are still free agents. It hurts because it seems like the inflow of players who were in Europe is pretty strong this year.

I thought Standish had signed a multiyear deal? Or was that just Steindl? Those import spots are going to have to be put to good use this season.

The Nia Coffey we're starting to see in Vegas this season could be very successful in the WNBL, along similar lines to Asia Taylor - the 3/4 combo who ends up too strong/too quick rather than too slow/too small when they drop down a level.

Melbourne might have enough scoring threats among their Aussies to make Lindsay Allen a useful pickup. Can be a problem when teams sign imports who aren't natural scorers, expecting them to carry the offense, but she shouldn't have to do that on that team.

Amusing to see Mitchell and Griffin on the same team - when the national team is forced to choose one or the other.

What are the salaries like in the WNBL? The comfort factor of playing there would attract some players for sure -- and it seems like the rosters are a little deeper/stronger than in the past.

But really, what do I know? (A rhetorical question that does not require an answer so save your bullets ...)

Salaries vary widely from close to nothing up to 5-figures ($AUD) for the very top local players (eg. Lauren Jackson's last contract was $1 mil for 3 seasons, local stars like Taylor & Cambage would be on 100+). But in general, import players aren't choosing Australia for the money, they're choosing it for the lifestyle (English-speaking, summer season, light schedule), and it's a pretty decent standard league compared to the European alternatives. Starting with last season it is also a very compact season (last season was 3 months + 1 month of playoffs), which would be attractive for players wanting to give their bodies some relief.

Last season was probably as talent-laden as we've ever had. This coming season isn't looking quite as strong.

Interesting ... both Nurse and Davis apparently turned down more money to play in Australia, if I understand things correctly. Or maybe the market for those two wasn't that great ...

Nonetheless, should make the WNBL a little better.

Not WNBL, but it can't say much for the standard of basketball in the Adelaide era if 45 year old Jo Hill was the leader in scoring in the Grand Final to get her team the championship. Also, even if she claims she's retiring again, I am not going to believe her.

Haha, I was going to mention that here as well. No one epitomises "ball is life" better than Jo! She's amazing.

Her sporting career isn't quite over yet though. It turns out that she has been playing aussie rules football as well, and that team made the grand final too! To be played this weekend.

The real news here is that Kaela Davis is still not healthy.

So are the Opals playing any warmup games before the tourney on Sat? Their roster looks like very few guards and lots of SF, PF, C.

A Liz Cambage-less Opals lost to Spain 65-62 today, you can find it over in the Opals thread. I think they only have a closed door scrimmage with the United States remaining, but I could be wrong.

They've played a bunch of them in various bits of Europe over the last couple of weeks (albeit with Cambage sitting several out). The US thing is the only one left at this point, as far as I know.

New season tips off 4 days from now.
The regular season schedule is still just 21 games per team, but it has been relaxed a little to span 15 weeks (last season was 13).

The league is also back on free-to-air TV for the first time in a few years, with 9 games to be shown on SBS. 6 others will be on pay TV.

A good summary of the full rosters is here, with "*" denoting the import players, which this season are:
Adelaide: Kayla Alexander, Nia Coffey
Bendigo: Becca Tobin, Jamie Scott
Canberra: Kia Nurse, Kaili McLaren
Dandenong: Betnijah Laney, Kayla Pedersen
Melbourne: Lindsay Allen, Sarah Boothe
Perth: Asia Taylor, Brittany McPhee
Sydney: Amanda Johnson
Townsville: Ally Malott, Laurin Mincy

Star power is down on last season with no Cambage or Courtney Williams.
Ledge power is also down with Sami Whitcomb playing in France.
Kia Nurse looks like the most qualified addition.

The Perth Lynx are looking like following their Minnesota counterparts on a slide down the standings this season Sad We've taken last season's smallball team and somehow managed to subtract a significant amount of height from it.

So I guess Pederson just retired from the WNBA, not basketball entirely?

We`re underway!


Round 1
Just 1 game per team to start off the season, but already some interesting results.
On opening night Canberra - who are still without Leilani Mitchell & Marianna Tolo - destroyed Sydney.
In the televised game yesterday (which I will put on Youtube in a couple of days) Perth fell to Adelaide. Last night the title favourites Melbourne had a shock loss to wooden spoon favourites Bendigo in a game that the bookies had Melbourne at $1.01 and Bendigo $12.00 for the win.
Today the reigning champs, Townsville, were beaten in their own building by Dandenong - another result not many would have tipped. (Certainly not the great Michele Timms, who is on a WNBL podcast this season and managed to predict all 4 results incorrectly)
Big performers included Kia Nurse, Alex Bunton, Nia Coffey, Marena Whittle, Betnijah Laney and Suzy Batkovic.

Sydney 78 (Bunton 27p 7r, Smart 16p 5r, Tupaea 12p, A.Wilson 10p 4a, Snell 7p 5r 5a)
Canberra 97 (Nurse 26p, Scherf 22p 5r 4a, McLaren 14p 3b, Rocci 11p, K.Wilson 9p 8r 11a, Griffin 8p 7r 4a)
Boxscore

Perth 66 (Taylor 16p 6r, Schwagmeyer 15p, Steindl 14p 5r, McPhee 11p 5r)
Adelaide 78 (Coffey 19p 15r, Planeta 16p 7r, Nicholson 15p 5r, Seekamp 10p 4a, Blicavs 9p)
Boxscore
YouTube

Melbourne 72 (Talbot 20p, Allen 18p 5a, O`Hea 14p 6r, George 10p 11r, Magbegor 4p 6r)
Bendigo 82 (Whittle 21p 4s, Payne 16p 5r, Tobin 15p 9r 5s 3b, Hurst 12p)
Boxscore

Townsville 68 (Batkovic 20p 16r, Samuels 16p 7r, Cocks 6p 8r, Madgen 6p 6r)
Dandenong 73 (Cole 18p 7r, Laney 16p 12r 5a, Lavey 13p 5a, Jarry 11p 7r, Pedersen 2p 11r)
Boxscore

Once again, marginal players at the WNBA level feel like superstars in the WNBL.



I’m curious if Magbegor got into early foul trouble. Only 23 min total game time.

This might not be the best team for her to showcase herself for the WNBA draft. All the other starters took at least 12 shots, leaving Magbegor with only 4 shots taken. Even “pass first” PG Lindsay Allen took 12 shots. Hopefully they’ll be better matchups down the road for her.

Four road wins has to be pretty unusual.

Sadly, geniussports seems to have gone backwards from where it was last year, when it was halfway decent. Sportingpulse isn't perfect either, but at least it's something that I am used to.

Some do; others come down here and still don't look that good.
For the ones that elevate their games it's a good thing for their WNBA teams IMO.

It seems that no other league has supplied as many players to the WNBA than the WNBL (I know of no way to check this though. Cambage, O'hea, Whitcomb, Talbot come to mind) Also the WNBA supplies a lot of players to the WNBL as well. WNBA players like Sancho Lyttle seemed to be much brighter stars in the Euro zone leagues as well. Even Roshonda Gray and Ciera Burdick put up some pretty big numbers in Italy as I recall. So it seems like the WNBL may be one of the strongest leagues around.

The WNBL compares pretty well with the European domestic leagues, but the Euroleague is still where it's at for most of the best WNBA players (plus the best European players who could be WNBA players but choose not to be). There's still not that much money in the WNBL.

Also:

* Barbara Turner joins the Bendigo Spirit, replacing the injured Jamie Scott

* Here's the Perth Lynx vs Adelaide Lightning game from Round 1. (YouTube link)

Round 2

A couple of injured Opals point guards returned to action today, with Leilani Mitchell and Lauren Mansfield both coming off their respective benches.
Canberra continued their winning start, and so did surprise packets Bendigo. 32 from Brittany McPhee and 4 triples from Asia Taylor helped Perth get their first win.
On the negative side of things, Snell copped an injury that probably cost her team its first win, and Jarry had a fall in her game and missed the rest of the weekend - hopefully just as a precaution.

Adelaide 65 (Seekamp 17p 5r 4a 6s, Nicholson 14p 4s, Planeta 14p, Coffey 9p 12r)
Townsville 75 (Garbin 20p 7r, Batkovic 19p 12r 5a 3b, Aokuso 14p 7r, Cocks 10p 6r)
Boxscore

Dandenong 66 (Cole 21p, Laney 17p 12r 6a, Lavey 13p)
Sydney 62 (Bunton 16p 15r, Wilson 12p 7a, Snell 11p)
Boxscore

Melbourne 65 (Magbegor 19p 5r, George 13p 6r, Allen 9p 8a)
Canberra 72 (Griffin 23p 14r 5s, Scherf 14p 6r, Nurse 12p 5r, Wilson 10p 5r 8a)
Boxscore

Bendigo 87 (Tobin 21p 11r, Hurst 18p, Payne 15p 7r 4a, Whittle 10p 6r 4a, Tomlinson 10p)
Dandenong 65 (Pedersen 13p 15r, Mijovic 10p, Cole 9p, Laney 8p 5a, Rowe 8p)
Boxscore

Sydney 75 (Tupaea 21p 4a, Bunton 19p 11r, Smart 17p 10r, Wilson 9p, Johnson 5p 9r)
Melbourne 87 (Allen 23p 6a, O'Hea 19p 4a, Garrick 13p, Magbegor 10p, Boothe 10p, George 9p 9r 10a)
Boxscore
YouTube

Canberra 79 (Griffin 21p 8r 4a, Nurse 14p 10r, Scherf 12p 10r, McLaren 9p, Wilson 8p 7r 4a)

Boxscore

Perth 98 (McPhee 32p 7r, Taylor 21p 7r, Farnworth 13p 6a, Schwagmeyer 12p Ebzery 8p, Steindl 5p 8r 4a)
Townsville 88 (Batkovic 23p 6r, Madgen 12p 7a, Garbin 11p, Malott 9p, Mincy 8p 6r 4a, Samuels 8p 5r, Donnelly 8p)
Boxscore

---
The televised game was Melbourne getting their first win of the season over an injury-depleted Sydney Uni, which I will link in a couple of days. Good chance to see Magbegor, Bunton, and Tupaea in action. Or watch Lindsay Allen score 23, O'Hea finding her range from the perimeter, or Cayla George getting a near-triple-double (including 4/17 shooting)

There were also a few live streamed games this round (2 of which suffered catastrophic technical failures). They are streamed at http://www.foxsports.com.au/live and are not geo-blocked this season, which would be cool for international fans, other than the fact that they're not available to view once the game is finished. You can only see them live, which seems like quite a waste. And a pain for USA viewers in particular due to the time difference.

I thought the WNBA and WCBB had become a slaves to mammon with all the commercial signs in the gyms and the logos on uniforms.

But the WNBL has giant signs in that gym advertising personal injury LAWYERS!!! Ewww! "No win, no fees" -- it says. Well, looking on the positive side, perhaps basketball teams should adopt that policy.

Round 3

Melbourne shifted into high gear and became the first team to beat Canberra, despite Kia Nurse's best efforts, Bendigo's winning streak also came to screeching halt on the Perth-Adelaide road double, Townsville barely avoided being trap game victims against Sydney, who were without 3 injured starters (Bunton, Snell & Tupaea) in the TV game, and after barely hanging on to beat the Spirit after leading 61-34 at half time, Perth today crushed the Rangers to join Canberra at the top of the standings, while Adelaide gave Bendigo a serious beatdown too, including a 20/20 from Nia Coffey. Kayla Alexander saw her first WNBL action in this game too.

Round 4

6 games spanned 5 days this round.
Melbourne were without Ezi Magbegor (broken bone in her hand) but still easily beat Dandenong, but then they lost Garrick as well and couldn't get past Bendigo today.
Another good week for Perth - beating a depleted Sydney team, and then getting an overtime win in Townsville.
Canberra continued their winning form, and also celebrated Kia Nurse winning Player of the Month, and Paul Goriss winning Coach of the Month.
Next weekend's TV game could be a good one: Canberra @ Perth

Not a UK-friendly time unfortunately.
Saturday at 12:00 Perth time = 04:00 UTC = Friday 23:00 US ET Live Streaming Site Link
Not too bad for any west coast McPhee fans, or Kia Nurse fans who are up late though.

It looks like SBS are now archiving the TV games for the whole season at http://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/search/wnbl but I'm pretty sure that whole site is geoblocked.

That's now-ish, right? Because all I see is a countdown to tomorrow's Bendigo-Sydney game.

Oh damn. Sad It was indeed then-ish, but not live streamed, and that's my bad for screwing that up because the TV game is not streamed on that website, only other random games (like tomorrow's) are shown there.
Sorry about that … don't know what I was thinking posting that link for that game.

Round 5

A good weekend for Melbourne with 2 wins, and in particular for Lindsay Allen, who is scoring well in addition to distributing and is a good shot at POTW this week.
Kelsey Griffin's huge game of 30 & 18 would have put her in contention, but not enough help saw her team go down in Perth.
Sydney & Dandenong continued their losing form, and perennial playoff participants Townsville are struggling too right now. Batkovic with a very rare quiet game.

Melbourne 96 (George 27p 8r 3s 3b, Talbot 20p 7r 4a, Allen 16p 5a, O'Hea 14p 4a, Garrick 9p)

So how long is Magbegor expected to be out? A broken bone in her hand sounds serious.

If Magbegor is out for most of the season, how far does her draft stock drop? Second rounder?

It might help. Then she remains the athletic youngster with lots of potential, rather than the girl averaging 4 points and 5 rebounds in a league where an 85-year old Suzy Batkovic is still an MVP candidate.
