BA site short of info on Opals comp

Go to check basketball Australia's website to see the times fir the opals games, unbelievable, their most successful senior program has zilc on the comp that starts early hours tomorrow
And they wonder why the women’s wnbl can’t get ahead, instead it’s all about un20s and 3x3 community and everything other than the Opals.
Last news article they have is Jenna Oheas injury

When will the get rid of these idiots at the helm

"The three Opals games will be shown live on FIBA's YouTube channel with Opals v France on February 7 at 4am, Opals v Puerto Rico on February 9 at 6.30am and Opals v Brazil on February 10 at midnight."

The fiba site says 6:30am tomorrow for France though... enjoy!

Opals lost to France (!!!) in opening game of qualifying games. BIG yikes there.

never underestimate the advantage of a home crowd / court it adds so much. My observations over the last few years in womens basketball is the home teams seem to achieve so much more. Look at the Turkish womens team a few years ago in 2014. Spain 2018. I'm sure Japan has had a couple of significant wins in games at home the last few years. IMO - home court in International womens basketball = anything from an 10-20 point advantage.

The true definition of stupid is doing the exact same thing and expecting a different result
