Purcell
Having, for now at least, missed out on a shot at the WNBA after being released by the Dallas Wings Kalani Purcell (188-F-95) has linked up with her sister Natalie Taylor in Brisbane to play in the Queensland Basketball League (QBL). Purcell played just 10 minutes for Brisbane Spartans hoovering up 9 rebounds in that time to go with 4 assists and 4 points. The Spartans beat Cairns Dolphins 80-58 with Natalie Taylor contributing 5 points and 6 rebounds.

Also in the QBL Micaela Cocks (12pts/7rebs/5assists) and Chevannah Paalvast (8pts/5rebs) made significant contributions as Mackay Meteorettes beat Townsville Flames 84-68 to move to 3-0 for the season.

Perry Lakes Hawks recorded a commanding 82-62 victory against Mandurah Magic in the Western Australia State League (SBL). The two teams were the only unbeaten teams in the SBL heading into Friday's encounter but the Hawks were in control throughout.

Toni Edmondson only put up four shots in the game converting tice to finish with 5 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists.

Twenty four hours later the Hawks recorded a 10th straight win thumping East Perth Eagles 80-45 with Edmondson making 3 points and adding 4 rebounds.

Another team with a 10-0 record are the Kennedy Kereama coached Sunbury Jets.
In the latest round of Big V action Sunbury beat Eltham Wildcats 81-65. Josie Stockill got her claws into the wildcats to the tune of 16 points (7/11FG) and 4 rebounds.

Also in Melbourne Jess Bygate had 8 points and 4 rebounds but Sandringham Sabres were well beaten 74-53 at home against Kilsyth Cobras in the SEABL competition.
