Goulding on Perth coach Start me up, familiar court had Bogut-ful says McKay
MELBOURNE United captain Chris Goulding is rejuvenated and ready to roll ahead of his NBL homecoming against the Bullets at the Brisbane Convention Centre today.
Goulding, who made his NBL debut with the Bullets at the Southbank venue 12 years ago, made the hard call to withdraw from the Australian squad for the most recent round of World Cup qualifiers.
Goulding needed to get over the knee injury that sidelined him for three NBL games.
BASKETBALL PERTH Wildcats coach Trevor Gleeson has been fined $500 by the NBL for pushing Sydney Kings centre Andrew Bogut in a heated exchange.
Gleeson pushed Bogut away twice as the former NBA star tried to eavesdrop on an impromptu Wildcats huddle in the dying stages of the Kings’ 77-72 win in Sydney on Thursday.
Bogut grabbed Gleeson’s wrist during the incident, but was cleared of any wrongdoing. Because it was not an official time-out, Bogut was allowed to stand where he did.
FOOTBALL BRISBANE Roar captain Matt McKay prides himself on leading by example.
That’s why he’s not about to spit the dummy over uncertainty surrounding his position in the Roar’s best 11.
Having missed selection in the starting side for the opening two rounds of the season, McKay has since started four matches on the trot and is likely to again play from the opening whistle when the Newcastle Jets host the Roar tomorrow.
