Around The NBL On A Saturday Night

Best photo I could find of Adam Ballinger. On the up side, Perth Wildcats Head Coach Rob Beveridge loves the thought of two redheads banging down low.

Just catching up on the news that is relevant to the NBL this evening.

- Ty McKee and Cameron Tragardh lead the Wollongong Hawks to a decisive 93-69 win over the Townsville Crocodiles.

Although McKee and Tragardh were dominate in the scoring column, I'm on the Larry Davidson bandwagon. He is the do-it-all guy for the Hawks right now. Whether it is stretching the defense with his three point range or blocking shots at the defensive end, Davidson is giving the Hawks a dimension that aids the team in so many areas.

There is no doubting McKee's ability, but the thing that impresses me the most about the kid is his decision making. He sees the floor as well as anyone that I have seen in the NBL in the last five years. Whether he is knifing to the hoop and dishing off to a big man in the paint or finding a perimeter player from range, McKee's feel for the game is great to watch.

- Adam Ballinger has been woken.

The Adelaide 36ers score a 80-77 home win over the Gold Coast Blaze tonight.

I would say Ballinger has been off to a slow start this year but tonight he erupted for 36 points.

It must have been hard to go past this performance, but the Adelaide media are giving David Cooper some serious credit for his 10 minutes of playing time.
