    Ozhoops Radio #18-10: Something Something Smashmouth Reference

    The show that isn’t afraid to pose the big questions. Such as, who has two thumbs and went 11/11 in last week’s tipping? This week we review week 7 in the NBL and WNBL, I pick my mid-season WNBL All-Star teams, and we look ahead to the World Cup qualifiers this weekend across Asia.

    Ozhoops Radio #18-09: Making Statements

Everyone continues to make changes just after my show gets published; the Melbourne Boomers and Townsville Fire make statements; New Zealand extends its winning streak to 8; and I still suck at fantasy sports. It’s been such a big week it took me a day longer to sort myself out, but I’m here […]

    …But Some Are More Equal Than Others

    It’s a Yes! Australia has spoken, and the majority has voiced its support for marriage equality. Now all we have to do is get Parliament to agree on it.

    NBA 2K18 thoughts (Nintendo Switch)

    These are my thoughts as per Ozhoops Radio this week; as I get more game time I’ll expand on them here. I bought the Nintendo Switch version of NBA 2K18 rather than going for a version on one of the ‘bigger’ consoles. I think it’s interesting given it’s the first NBA 2K game I’ve bought […]

    Ozhoops Radio 18-07: Taking My Talents To South Yarra

    Derek spent a whole week geeking it up at a video game convention, so this week we’re going to talk a bit about video games in addition to the usual NBL/WNBL game previews and tips. Did he mention he went 7/7 in WNBL tipping last week? Because he’s going to. Repeatedly. New episodes will be […]

    Ozhoops Radio #18-06: Travelling Violation

    This week, we went to the fights and some basketball broke out, the Dandenong Rangers find their groove and upset the WNBL ladder, and my prediction game is whatever the opposite of “on point” is. New episodes will be available Wednesday mornings. Subscription link for upcoming episodes: Or search for “Ozhoops” in iTunes or […]
