Getting towards the business end now of the SBL replacement West Coast Classic and we are kicking it up a notch on SBL Shootaround by analysing it all along with announcing our All-Star Teams and speaking with a current player who is already an all-time great.
We open up Episode 17 of SBL Shootaround by taking a look at a fascinating Round 7 in the West Coast Classic where the Warwick Senators and Perth Redbacks kept on winning while the Willetton Tigers and Lakeside Lightning suffered tough Friday night losses, and the Goldfields Giants took their winning form on the road.
It was then time for our co-hosts to put on their coaching hats and select their All-Star Teams from the West Coast Classic. Chris Pike is coach of the South team and Ben Ettridge of the North so they picked their teams of 12 and we'll come back next week to determine a winner!
We then have a chat with Cockburn Cougars captain and all-time great Gavin Field. He has now played 250 SBL games with the Cougars, has been part of two championships and is universally as one of the best pure scorers and all-round players to ever lace up a pair of boots in WA basketball.
But we chat to him about plenty including what Cockburn means to he and his family, and what it always has, talk about the type of player he is and the NBA legend he might remind us of and also reflect back on the highs and lows of his career to date.
We also chat about his college career at West Georgia and then turn our attention to his life as a husband, father and teacher along with plenty more. He even passed on something to Ben Ettridge he is going to use in his coaching moving forward.
We then keep moving on SBL Shootaround by providing a full preview of Round 8 in the West Coast Classic.
