Marino loses it for Lightning

Daddy's little girl with 1 from 7, 0 boards and 3 turn overs in 25:21 was too much for the rest of the team to make up - even with Erin scoring 19 at 75%, 5 boards and 2 assists in 24:28 and Jenny Wittle 22 points at 9 from 11 shooting couldn't make up for Angela.

Lightning down to Flames 105-88

It is not so much her offence, she played far to much for someone that cant defend anybody.

Yes you are right Isaac, it was a pretty harsh comment, but there was so much gap between her and Erin (a girl who has just come back from a knee) that it was like watching a div 3 girl getting a run in div 1. Both ends of the floor, she was lacking. No intensity, no leadership, no defence and tonight, no offence either. Can get some numbers at the ABL level, but not consistent enough as a starter in WNBL. - IMO

Your a dickhead spinner. Get a life and move on from what has happened. Didn't see you come on here the last few weeks and say how great she was. Typical knob that justs sits in the corner and waits for the people you hate to fail and then get on here and bag them. A very sad live you must life.

What about Foley's stats spinner?

0 from 4 fg, 1 reb, 0 ass and 3 tunrovers. And it's not like she is a good defender either. If she plays another 10 minuites, she misses another 2 shots, gets another turnover and maybe gets a rebound.

Sounds like somebody has an axe to grind. And doesn't want to accept the team has been playing better.

Get a life!

I thought Vicki was following orders and giving every player court time.

think she could have brought in her best players when sydney started their run.

You guys are idiots. Spinner, you are right. Marino was absolutley terrible and doesnt deserve her place in the team. Her defence was a disgrace. She lost them the game herself.

get used to it because she isnt going anywhere but from what i hear at the end of this season the rest of the team will be! Marino may have to do it all on her own. Im sure she will enjoy that

Yeah Marino's 2 late 3's got us over the line last week...NOT
Where you even at the game... Foley and Phillips got us over the line. Foley with 30pts and Phillips with 9pt last quarter.
You gotta be kidding Marino was throwing bricks!

Spinner thanks for being a tool and posting the game result in the title.

Marino's stats look worse because she jacked up some long 3's in the last minute to try and get them back into the game.

Adelaide shot the lights out for 3 quarters in a very high standard game.

But still lost and will continue to lose because they are not a team. Too many egos, and Marino has the biggest one. She is full of herself but has to realise one thing, and so does her rude father. She is a good player but not great and never will be. I dont think the restof the girlsa are going to forget how he spoke to them and he is going to be minus a few players at the end of the season

How did he speak to the girls and when did he speak to the girls?

It may explain their current form?

I would like to thank Marino for last nite as a Rangers supporter - she was BOG for us in the last quarter!

I think eveybody is forgetting that one game doesn't make a season for a player or team. Plenty of top sides/players can have a bad day out.
What's done is done so how about removing undue pressure off of angela and the team and let them play out the season as a team with the goal of the premiership.

It's a shame for all basketball loving people that as long as you have enough money you can buy your daugther a team to play in close to home, even if she is good enough to play in other teams inter state.

Watched the game on Friday night. How did the Lightning lose? Looked like poor coaching. Even the commentators stated that Marino "was out of control" at times. NO defence and poor stats. When it came down to the crunch in the last quarter (and the game was still there to be won) Sam Woosnam and Jess Foley were on the bench (and this was also noted by the commentators). Did Vicki think that the 'princess' was going to win the game or is she under instructions from "daddy". These are the same circumstances (although they had only lost one game then) which saw Chris Lucas 'back stabbed' - will "daddy" now look for another coach or does the 'princess' like this one.
