Boomers vs Flames, 8 Dec 2018 (live on SBS & Foxtel)

The 9-4 Boomers (4-1 last five) take on 1-10 Sydney Uni (1-4 last five, after getting their first win last round). Anyone like the Flames' chances, given they'll be playing their second game for the week?

Being their 2nd game of the round doesn't matter so much given it's a Wednesday-Saturday double but I still rate the Flames' chances of victory as near-Buckley's. Though not absolute zero. Sydney's playoff hopes are over but they do play with heart and seem to have a nothing-to-lose mentality rather than a we suck mentality, and despite being absolutely stacked the Boomers have somehow managed 4 losses already including 2 to Bendigo.
Hoping we don't get a blowout on TV. Go Flames!

Hard to see the Flames get this one, Boomers to drop it back to 3rd gear early and cruise

So far so good, but can Sydney's short rotation keep this up?

Conti slidin so fast. Has beeen terrible all season.
Molloy ending careers.

im glad young players like pollerd and Melbourne are moving away.
That team will destroy you're development.

Meanwhile Lara McSpadden looking significantly better than the last time she played significant minutes in the tv game. Really impressed with her today against this Opals front court.

Snelly playing a handy one as well.

Not sure it was Molloy who created this hype around Conti in the first place. On the other hand his coaching has been exposed once again.

And Foxtel couldn't stand the defeat of their favorite team by the bottom dwellers :)

At what point does it get acknowledged that Cheryl Chambers is the best coach in the wnbl? Should be coaching Boomers or Rangers, in fact they should be fighting over her. Instead she's commuting to Sydney. She takes her absolutely decimated team and beats the star studded line up of the Boomers. Incredible! Imagine the gulf in terms of budget between those two teams.

She's a fantastic coach I agree.
Not that I blame the Rangers for bringing one of their own up through the system. That's a good club mentality.

I'm stoked for Cheryl & the team for pulling that off today. That was a big win for basketball in general and the power of heart & teamwork.
And Melbourne's was a big loss for arrogance/apathy.
