It’s not just the Men’s Australian NBL that is underway this week but the Australian Women’s National Basketball League (WNBL) also tips-off.
Beginning Friday there are four first round games with three featuring New Zealand Tall Ferns players.
The Sydney against Canberra clash on Friday has no Kiwi presence but on Saturday Perth Lynx featuring Toni Farnworth entertain Penina Davidson and Adelaide Lightning.
Also on Saturday Kalani Purcell and Josie Stockill will be suiting up for the Melbourne Bomers at home against Bendigo Spirit.
The first round concludes on Sunday with champions Townsville Fire hosting Dandenong Rangers. Veteran Micaela Cocks will once again be in the Fire lineup but unfortunately injury has ruled our Stella Beck.
