Great news for women’s basketball in Australia with the news that Lauren Jackson has been named MVP of the WNBA in the USA. The 22 year-old Opal star lead the league in scoring, and field-goals made, and finished fourth in rebounds per game.

If you watch the tackle on a reply, it’s just sickening. Neill says it wasn’t malicious, but he was not even close to playing the ball.
