Cambage - game MVP on the TV game today, 33points.
Later, she told ABC TV that she was feeling sick , at half time.

Still, so big , so strong, too good.

Lightning have another go at Townsville, tonite.

The coach had to put her on a little bit, in the second half, short spells, just enough to keep the margin.
Tom Maher -A bit of common sense, clear instructions, respect from players.
Some coaches are confusing.

Good thing it wasn't closer. The players were laughing and the commentators gave up, trying to follow what was going to be called a charge or a defensive foul.

Adelaide were determined not to go bottom, after AIS won. Led 10 to 6 , half way thru the first qtr
but the lights went out , in Townsville.
Have to try agen, tomorrow.

Seems there was a fuse blown out, that left nothing but darkness.
The game starts agen , today, from scratch. ( not at 10 to 6 , half way thru the first qtr.)

Maybe stop playing marino full minutes every game and see if the other guards have got a team game

As a team the lightning only had 6 assists against Townsville. Kristen Veal averages that amount on her own. Maybe we should try and bring her home!

Get real guys, the team exists so that Marino can play.

I don't think the players are the problem - It is the coaches or lack of coaching. Listern to what the Commentators said last Saturday. It is a pity such a young side with talent to grow has wasted the whole year. Three Coaches and not one is any good. Steve the whole last quarter no sub - who lost the game?

Marino gets tired playing a full game , without a stop

While, Nagy often wrote that AIS shouldn't be in the League.
The Lightning have never been in such poor shape.

Marino is a bench player at best and a 3 mins a quarter 3 shooter with very average skills in every dept bar 3's. For her to play full games just prevents better players getting worthwhile time and is the key reason no one, and I mean no one wants to play for them and why talent leaves. To coach Lightning for any time would mean selling your soul to the devil and it's a hefty price.

Marino is not a bench player. She is an excellent shooter , who if played properly coming of screens and turn out cuts would embarrass other teams, and tear them apart. Putting her in 1, whilst what the family wants , is not what is best for her or any team she is in.



so ends the scripture

Yeah, I think that her situation personally/politically is clouding people's judgements of her as a player.
Ang can play. She may get a few more minutes than she deserves, and I can't speak on her attitude, but out on the court she is no chump. (and I'm far from her biggest fan)

December emphasized something we already knew well.
Cambage and Maher - WNBL Player and Coach of the month
for 2 consecutive months.

Dan, she hasn't got the game that most of her younger peers have and she doesn't deserve to head the minutes per game every week. The fact that she does goes a long way to explaining bottom position.

That is crap 5607.
She was the 4th highest scorer at the Olympics and has been one of the highest free throw % players in the WNBL for years.
She knows how to draw a foul.
I am with DD on this one.

If you play for NZ you will get the opportunity and most abl players would get a role in NZ so I don't rate that highly. She has a shot but I don't rate her game at all, petulant, big headed and protected are not qualities that endear to team mates.
There is an army of better talent that could and should take her role and improve the team. There is a host of quality players who would still be playing if the team wasn't revolving around the sun
