Men’s SBL Shootaround - Episode 15

August 27, 2020

We are up to Episode 15 on Men's SBL Shootaround and we aren't slowing down as we bring you all the latest on the West Coast Classic while talking to one of Australia's greatest ever basketball players.

It's Episode 15 of SBL Shootaround with Chris Pike and Ben Ettridge opening up with a look at three teams putting together some particularly exciting form right now in the West Coast Classic - the Willetton Tigers, Warwick Senators and Goldfields Giants.

We then take a look at the key players across a host of teams and discuss whether we will see any more of them in the West Coast Classic over the next month or not.

It's then time for a full breakdown on the Round 5 action in the West Coast Classic as we take a look at the results, the standout performers and how the finals race is shaping up.

It's then on to our guest for this week and it doesn't get any better than Mark Worthington. We discuss plenty about his glittering playing career that included playing 335 games in the NBL along with winning a championship as he did in Germany and indeed back before his college days with the South West Slammers in the SBL.

He's also a dual Olympian and now has made his move into coaching and is back home in Bunbury and ready to put in the hard work to build up the South West Slammers from a youthful group right now hopefully into the powerhouse they were back in the 1990s.

Wortho shares with us plenty of thoughts about his coaching philosophies along with some fascinating stories reflecting on his playing days including a 60-point SBL game, why it was only Trevor Gleeson that stopped him playing at the Perth Wildcats and so much more as he was tremendously generous with his time for us on SBL Shootaround.

There's also a discussion about why he is so happy with life in Bunbury thanks to his new partner - who just happens to be her own sporting star!

And then we wrap things up on SBL Shootaround with a preview of this weekend's action in the West Coast Classic.
