- Sydney Spirit get the franchise its first win at home (if you call Canberra home!), while Brett Maher is denied victory in game 500.

- Gold Coast Blaze coach unleashes on Western Australian journo.

- Shane Heal is ready to take on old team, the South Dragons. He comments on the Dragons spending and how he did not get to reap the benefits of playing the youth during last season last year. This game should make for interesting viewing this Thursday on the Coast.

- 36ers import Mark Tyndale's poke to the eye hurts Adelaide's winning streak. A crowd of 1322 showed up in Canberra to watch home team Sydney Spirit get their first win. I think they just used my stat line against Cairns to come up with this figure, 1-3 fgs, 2 assists, 2 steals?

- Breakers are ready for 36ers clash this Thursday.

- Paul Henare's son in horrific accident.

- ASternWarning gives us his Round 2 review. I love the Homicide reference.
