    It’s the FIBA Women's World Cup and in this episode - technically our 99th including special and bonuse episodes, we feature former Opal and FIBA Women's World Cup ESPN commentator Jenni Screen.

    Jenni talks us through her coaching with the NBA Basketball without Borders for Asia, recently held at the AIS in Canberra, with baby Edith strapped in for the ride and no one who has seen that inspirational image and it’s symbolism will forget it.

    She provides amazing insights into her transition to commentary, encompassing the women's game as well as the NBL and how that rounds out her coaching and intel of the game. 

    As a regular guest speaker on the basketball circuit she imparts a lot of wisdom for younger players as well as giving us an honest look into that famous 2006 World Cup Gold Medal.

    As part of the ESPN Broadcast World Cup crew Screeni will sit courtisde, mic in hand as her Opals sisters battle it out with the worlds best. 

    Catch the FIBA Women’s World Cup on ESPN, Kayo Freebies and Courtside 1891 depending on where you are in the world.

    In this powerhouse episode we're talking with Adam McKay - producer & director of Sidelined, a 4 part documentary series lifting the curtain of the WNBL Melbourne Boomers 2022 Championship quest and spotlighting the struggles for our elite female athletes in the Fight for Equality in a challenging, post lockdown sporting landscape.

    Ep84: Michele Timms - slicing and dicing the FIBA Women's World Cup

    Opals Legend Michele Timms joins us to dissect the current state of play for the FIBA Women's World Cup. 

    It's the final countdown with less than 2 weeks until the biggest #womenshoops event on the planet.

    As always there’s some shrewd observations as the world’s eyes focus on Sydney and witness the remarkable return of one of the best, Lauren Jackson, in her fifth Women's World Cup.

    Timmsy will join the ESPN commenatry line up and in the most socially connected era ever our hope is this FIBAWWC generates a deeper appreciation of women's hoops and ignites a renewal that ripples far and wide from our shores!

    Ep83: Liz and Vik Mills Connecting Coaches Globally

    Ep83: Liz and Vik Mills Connecting Coaches Globally

    In an Australian podcast first - Shooting The Breeze regular Coach Liz Mills joins us with her twin sister Vik Mills as they launch their Global Women In Basketball Coaching Network this week.

    Liz is renowned for making hoops history as the first woman Head Coach of a men's national team at an African continental championship and co-founder Vik Mills is an accomplished leader in the global consulting services industry.

    We explore the universal challenges for women in basketball coaching and from different walks of life, and get a glimpse into the amazing female Coaches that form the Leadership group including previous pod guest Sydney Kings assistant Coach Fleur McIntyre.

    Other mentors include: Spain's Coach Anna Montanana, Senegal's Coach Khady Diop, Cape Verde's Coach Mery Andrade, USA/Canada's Coach Brittni Donaldson, France's Coach Lauriane Dolt and Belgium's Gaelle Bouzin.

    It’s a remarkable close up view of two trailblazers with a shared history of coaching basketball in their youth - on their vision for positive change and a lasting legacy, and the enormous opportunity to connect women all over the world with different perspectives in order to support, mentor and network for better opportunities.

    In Liz’s own words “it’s our role to change that narrative. We rise by lifting others, and that's what we should be doing with this network.”

    Enjoy!

    Ep81: Lena Wallin-Kantzy Women In Basketball is the next frontier

    Ep81: Lena Wallin-Kantzy Women In Basketball is the next frontier

    We’re incredibly honoured to host a female advocate for women’s basketball from the highest levels of FIBA, Lena Wallin-Kantzy, the first woman elected to the FIBA Executive Committee and currently the Deputy Chair of the Competitions Commission, encompassing Women in Basketball.

    A trailblazer within the global federation model of basketball, Lena provides us with a unique perspective of the vision to create more opportunities for women through six key objectives identified as part of FIBA Strategic Priority for Women In Basketball.

    With the FIBA Women's World Cup being staged in Australia, a hoops nation that Lena describes as “...one of the leading countries in women's basketball ", she shares great insight into the evolution of both the event, our region as well as the powerhouse of the EuroLeague as evidenced by the steady migration of our local talent that is only set to grow.

    It’s not often we get a truly international perspective of the women's game, and an understanding of FIBA's vision from one of its most influential advocates. 

    Lena shares her wishes for the women’s game as both mother and fan about the importance of growing the game collectively and positioning it as a global sport with the power to not only inspire, but as a powerful and accessible movement that does not discriminate as to socio-economic status, disability, gender and location. 

    Some wonderful insights, and a common purpose has us singing from the same song sheet.
