Batkovic-Brown
There will be only one (last) round of the Regular Season in WNBL.

The most important game in the last round took place in Townsville between third ranked Dandenong Rangers (14-9) and fourth ranked Townsville Fire (14-9) on Friday night. Dandenong Rangers were defeated by Townsville Fire on the road 83-66. The game was mostly controlled by Townsville Fire. Dandenong Rangers managed to win fourth quarter 22-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Townsville Fire dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Dandenong Rangers' 26. The best player for the winners was the former international center Suzy Batkovic-Brown (195-80) who had a double-double by scoring 15 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists. American forward Kayla Standish (187-89, college: Gonzaga) chipped in 22 points and 9 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was international forward Sara Blicavs (188-93) who recorded a double-double by scoring 12 points and 11 rebounds. Dandenong Rangers' coach rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win. Townsville Fire have a solid three-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to third place, which they share with Dandenong. Dandenong Rangers lost fourth consecutive game. Townsville Fire is looking forward to face Canberra Capitals (#5) at home in the next round. Dandenong Rangers will play against the league's second-placed Perth Lynx and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Sydney. First ranked Sydney Uni Flames faced 3rd ranked Dandenong Rangers. Host Sydney Uni Flames (17-6) defeated guests from Dandenong (14-9) 81-77. It was a good game for American center Jennifer Hamson (201-92, college: BYU, agency: LBM Management) who led her team to a victory with a double-double by scoring 16 points and 14 rebounds. Belinda Snell contributed with 17 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists and 4 steals (perfect from downtown making all five shots) for the winners. The former international guard Stephanie Cumming (178-90) replied with 25 points and 5 assists for Dandenong Rangers. Sydney Uni Flames have an impressive seven-game winning streak. They maintain first position with 17-6 record. Dandenong Rangers lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the third place with nine games lost. They share the position with Townsville.

The game in Canberra supposed to be also quite interesting. 5th ranked Bendigo Spirit (11-11) played at the court of sixth ranked Canberra Capitals (12-10).

The game in Adelaide was also worth to mention about. Seventh ranked Boomers (5-18) played at the court of 8th ranked Adelaide Lightning (2-20). Boomers defeated Adelaide Lightning 85-72.
