    Surely Bakewell-Doran earned the start next week even in the short time she’s been on court. Far more effective than Jenner in GD in way less time on court.

    Just like that, a 7-1 run start to the Firebirds in the last quarter. Bakewell-Doran making an impact at GD and Jenner moving back to GK. Wallam and Dunkley back on.

    Vixens should bring Mannix back.

    Poor Austin. Definitely not the come-back game you’d be hoping for.

    Vixens looking a lot stronger than I was expecting after seeing their roster announcement last year…

    Seriously, Samason is just so calm and unflappable. She just goes out there and does her job brilliantly with little or no fuss. Currently 14/14, 8 assists, just 1 turnover. Vixens lead 66-61 with 4 minutes left.

    Okay, a drastic thought but if they don’t announce the Diamonds’ final team until later in the season, and depending on Gabrin and Wallam’s respective seasons… could we see Wallam sneak that 4th spot? I know it’s dependent on a lot of factors but really, I already like the look of Wallam. Offers a really strong holding shooter option.

    I know we’ve had issues with the male commentators over the past few seasons, but whoever this is, is actually doing a half-decent job. On the other hand, I kind of find that Geitz usually can’t offer a very balanced overview of the game when the Firebirds are involved. Will be interesting to see how she goes this year.

    I think Wallam could be a dark horse for sure but she will need to be near flawless in every outing and show that she can handle the speed and physicality of the league. We also need to see her up against Sterling, Bruce, Klau, Mentor and even the range of Dehaney.

    And as Tully mentioned, the footwork needs work. She has a very flat position due to her basketball background and she will need to watch the accidental lift of the grounded foot.

    But if it isn’t the CWG, if she continues on this trajectory, could be a decent chance for the World Cup.

    That was frustrating but an exciting game. Samason and Wallam both stars. Great games by Watson and Rav. Firebirds are going to struggle with their defensive circle this season (which given the list is probably to be expected).

    Full time: Vixens 70-65

    Firebirds won the last Q by 8 and the lineup they had on court might have given Coach Anderson some answers. But Vixens put the game almost beyond doubt in that 3rd Q.

    Wallam 43/48 (90%)
    Bueta 15/20 (75%)
    Stower 1/2 (50%)
    TOTAL 59/70 (84%)

    Kumwenda 44/49 (90%)
    Samason 15/15 (100%)
    Austin 8/13 (62%)
    TOTAL 67/77 (87%)

    Assists: Watson 22, Dunkley 18
    Gains: Weston 5

    POTM: Mawi Kumwenda (Vixens) 44/49, 4 assists, 5 rebounds
