  • No. 172: Remember the London Lions with Cazzy B

    26 APR 2024 · We’re grateful to have STB pod regular Cazzy B return to the pod, she’s recently been awarded for her volunteer efforts for WBBL team Manchester Giants, in her role as a commentator & livestreamer for womens British basketball.  In this episode, Caz takes us court-side from her trip to London’s Copperbox, in this evocative re-telling of a fairytale ending for the London Lions in their EuroCup victory. A historic victory that in her words ’…is the biggest thing that's ever happened in British basketball, women's or men's, full stop…’  It’s an incredible moment for womens basketball, with packed stadiums and global viewership like never before, but it’s bittersweet for some teams that continue to grapple with the necessary level of investment required to match the appetite of fans. We talk about that paradox, as currently, the Lions, will not play in the European League next year to defend their title.  We certainly know that for many hoops fans, they will remember the London Lions EuroCup victory in 2024!  Enjoy!  Don’t forget to like, share and leave a review so we can get more Hoops content to you!  Join us on our socials - Twitter: @TheBreezePod and IG: @shootingthebreezepod and LinkedIn

  • No. 167: James Janssen on Davidson & College Hoops

    15 MAR 2024 · We’re grateful to have James Janssen return to the pod, after joining us briefly for our 150th episode, we wanted to hear more from the Aussie Assistant Coach of the Davidson ‘Wildcats’ Women’s team from North Carolina.  He takes us deep into their program, including the pipeline of exceptional Aussie female hooper's that are becoming hallmarks of the Wildcats.  It’s a fascinating look into the significant progress of Davidsons women’s basketball program over the last decade, one which James has been integral to, but especially against the unprecedented rise of Women's College Hoops.  In a difficult development since this podcast was taped earlier in February, Davidson has announced their withdrawal from the season to provide optimal care and support to their players and staff in what’s been a season of devastating loss from injuries… notwithstanding their impressive game results.  Highlighting the incredible high and lows that athletes face, it’s clear that Davidson has prioritised the well-being of its student athletes and as James prophetically talks about in this episode - the importance for organisations and athletes to be intentional in self-care and the need sometimes to step back and evaluate.  Enjoy!  Don’t forget to like, share and leave a review so we can get more Hoops content to you!  Join us on our socials - Twitter: @TheBreezePod and IG: @shootingthebreezepod and LinkedIn
