Which National Team has the better head coach:

The Maple Leafers [Victor Lapena] or The Opals [Sandy Brondello]

How come Basketball Australia did not at least TRY to hire Victor

Lapena or another coach of his stature??? Money is not the reason.

I know for a fact that Canada Basketball is POOR!

Lose to Team Canada tonight and the Opals will not retain their

number three world ranking. The Opals have now DROPPED two games

to lesser ranked National Teams at HOME! The Opals CANNOT afford

to DROP three games to lesser ranked National Teams at HOME!

I'm not a huge Brondello fan, but my only real issue with this campaign was the lack of an extra guard, and that's been well discussed. Apart from that this campaign has been a very good one. Hopefully they can finish it off
with a medal, but it will be a huge ask after last night's exertion.

-------------------------------

Luuuc was VERY surprised and CONCERNED that the Opals only had three guards

on the roster. And virtually ALL of his concerns manifested themselves in

this tournament. ANY National Team Program worthy of the name should finish

AT or ABOVE their World Ranking in all major tournaments. And when that does

not happen, someone needs to lose their job. Brondello cough Brondello.


Canada Basketball had Lisa Thomaidis as head coach of Team Canada women's

national basketball team from 2014 to September, 2021. She did not produce

the desired results and as a consequence, the Maple Leafers hired Victor

Lapena in January 2022. From January 2022 to May 30, 2022, Victor Lapena

continued as head coach of Fenerbache. On June 1, 2022 he become Team Canada's

full time Women's Nation Team Basketball coach. He was available for at least

three months Sep 2021-Dec 2021 and his Team Canada contract runs through the

2024 Paris Olympics. How come Basketball Australia did not at least TRY to

hire Victor Lapena or another coach of his stature??? Money is not the reason.

I know for a fact that Canada Basketball is POOR! IF Team Canada wins tonight,

he WILL be given at least partial credit. If Canada lands a Bronze in Paris,

he WILL receive a contract extension.

Once again not enough rest for Talbot & Whitcomb that half. A lot of tired decisions already being made at both ends.

China were pretty solid for most of the first half except for a 2-3 minute sequence in the second quarter where they had turnovers and the US transition game ran riot.

Great to see Talbot get the recognition she deserves. She did everything she was asked to do while playing out of position (including being the point guard on offence at times), always took the toughest defensive perimeter assignment and maintained a high level of play in spite of her workload and the tough tournament schedule. Hopefully her workload will be less ridiculous in the future (more guards, Opals selectors).

It was impressive how the Aussies did it by committee. The highest scorer was Whitcomb who was 19th highest scorer in the cup

Jackson in hindsight clearly deserved more minutes, but the other 3 big girls were also huge throughout the tournament.

Talbot does everything. She was consistently good, as was Tolo and Whitcomb, with Jackson, Magbegor and George all having huge games at different points

Without a clear goto scorer (except LJs epic performance for the ages last night), it was great to see them sharing the ball, using back cuts and motion, a bit reminiscent of Boomers under Lemanis with Whitcomb 3 point shooting the closest comparison to Patty, although she's more a shoot off the dribble type rather than off screens

Aussie women's basketball really punches above it's weight, like men's cricket. Awesome tournament. Well done

I don't think you're understanding how it is calculated.
Points don't accumulate indefinitely. Old points are discarded after 8 years.
A team can catch up to another team even if they finish lower in a recent tournament, if they finished lower by a greater margin in the same tournament 8 years prior.

I've read the new system, the truth is although it says updated february 15th in the previous update to October, not all the points were added from the previous years results.
I had China between 650-660 after the WC and sitting in 5th and was surprised when the update was 676-2nd. Maybe I miscalculated but 'update’ and ‘current’ don’t seem to match.
