Purcell and Cocks shine in WNBL

Tall Ferns Micaela Cocks and Kalani Purcell made telling contributions for their respective clubs in the Australian WNBL last weekend.

Melbourne Boomers have bounced back to form with a couple of victories defeating top of the table Sydney University Flames 88-65 and Adelaide Lightning 77-74.

Once again Kalani Purcell was at the heart of the Boomers effort claiming 10 rebounds in each of the Melbourne wins. She added 6 points, 6 assists and 2 steals in Sydney and 4 points and 2 assists against Adelaide.

Incidentally Australian centre Liz Cambage knocked down a career high 44 points for Melbourne against Adelaide

The pair of wins lifts the Boomers to 7-4 for the season and third place on the WNBL ladder.

Sydney remains in top spot but Townsville Fire are second after Micaela Cocks helped the 2016 champions to a comprehensive 94-59 victory against Bendigo Spirit.

Cocks landed 16 points for the Fire including a more than useful four out of six from beyond the three-point arc.

Chevannah Paalvast played 10 minutes – although didn’t trouble the scorers – as Canberra Capitals were defeated 85-67 in Perth.

Jillian Harmon wasn’t in action at the weekend as the Italian League is taking a break whilst the European Championship Qualifying Tournament is taking place.
