We are really excited to bring you this episode of SBL Shootaround which includes a full preview of Round 1 of the West Coast Classic and a very special guest who will be taking part and has been a stalwart of the league with a great story to share.
First up on the latest SBL Shootaround, co-hosts Chris Pike and Randy Miegel have a chat about the latest basketball news and also have a discussion about what it's like coaching your children and dealing with good and bad parents as a coach.
It's then time for our special guest and it's 165-game SBL veteran Amber Land. We talk about starting her career in WA with the Warwick Senators, the move to the Joondalup Wolves and why Perth is now home for her after a basketball journey that saw her play all round the world before arriving at the Senators.
We don't just discuss her SBL journey though. We talk about Amber growing up in Kulm, North Dakota and then attending Eastern Michigan University and also about the Land Performance Centre that she has now helped make a reality this year in Balcatta.
Randy also discusses with Amber the time he tried to recruit her to the Mandurah Magic, and they share journeys of their teams doing battle over the years as she reflects on a career in the SBL where she has been a remarkably consistent big averaging 14 points and 11 rebounds a game.
We then provide a full preview of the Round 1 fixtures in the West Coast Classic getting under way on Friday night.
