Best WNBL Coaching Excuse

Coach: Karen Dalton
It was a good result to be back in the finals after missing out last season, but it was a bit disappointing to finish fifth.

I was hoping we would finish a bit higher, but the season-ending injury to Eva Afeaki in December really hurt us.

We had started very strongly, but with Eva going we lost our key post player and if the injury had have come in any other role we would have been able to cover it.

We were near the top of the table at the time, but we weren't able to stay there.
Getting injuries at bad times didn't help us, but that happens to every team.

It was great to make the finals, but I think we need to improve.

FACT: Dalton can't coach.

True - she's almost as bad as Graf - who can coach - but only with very loaded veteran sides who need no instruction, strategies or game plans other than the same ones she has used for the last 7 years - just checkout her time-out in last year's GF.
