Morrison challenges Wildcats culture

Perth Wildcats coach Scott Morrison has challenged his players to start living up to the culture and standards the club has established over the past 35 years.

“We spoke about how we make a big deal about the culture here and the history here and it’s kind of time to start living up to it – everyone,” Morrison said via the West Australian.

Magnay out for season 

Tasmania JackJumpers star Will Magnay has been ruled out for the season due to a lingering knee issue.

“It’s really disappointing for Will and for the team, but our highest priority is his health and welfare. He will continue to work closely with our medical staff and we will support him fully in his recovery,” JackJumpers CEO Simon Brookhouse said.

Adams open to Tassie return

JackJumpers import Josh Adams says he would be open to returning to the club next season.

“I love it here, I love what is being built here, I love Tasmania, I love the fans, I love being able to interact with companies I enjoy and have a belief in. If that's open I am more than happy to come back but like I said that's completely up to the team...if I have the chance I'll jump at it,” Adams said via The Advocate.

United happy with Delly, Ili shooting

Melbourne United has “great confidence” in the three-point shooting abilities of Matthew Dellavedova and Shea Ili, as teams dare them to shoot.

“We have great confidence in both of them. I think Delly is up to 37 per cent from three and Ili is 40.7 per cent. They are pretty high in our three-point percentages,” coach Dean Vickerman said via The Age.

Taipans 700th special for Jawai

Cairns veteran Nate Jawai has expressed how much the Taipans mean to him, as the club prepares for their 700th NBL game on Sunday.

“It means a lot – if not for the Cairns Taipans, I wouldn’t be where I’m at right now,” Jawai said via the Cairns Post.
