WNBL Round 5

Just 4 games this round. All potentially good ones, although backing up the next day against the Rangers is a big ask for the Caps.

Sat Townsville Fire v Sydney Uni Flames 19:00
Sat Bendigo Spirit v UC Capitals 19:30
Sun Dandenong Rangers v UC Capitals 14:00
Sun Perth Lynx v Melbourne Boomers 14:00

Both Sunday games should be live streamed on the Rangers & Lynx Youtube channels

No game for the Lightning this round. After playing 5 of their first 6 games on the road, they need a rest!

Going to be a battle for the Lynx to defend home court against the Boomers on Sunday. Still no word on a Monica Wright replacement, though it's good to hear that the search is definitely on, and now Tenaya Phillips has been ruled out for ~ a month due to her shin issue. Haven't heard an update on Lee but she could be doubtful too as it looked a nasty knock that she copped last game.
Lavey, Whitcomb & Edmondson will be heavily relied upon. I could picture Mijovic having to play a bit of SF this week.

Meanwhile, Melbourne go deep, with quality players like Cole, Cunningham, Bygate & Bowen coming off the bench.

Could be some value to be had on the Boomers I think (odds not published on Sportsbet yet)

2 angles of the backwards-while-falling-down shot Batkovic hit on the final buzzer to force OT:
