March 11, 2024 | Sydney Flames news

With both the WNBL and NBL seasons now wrapped up, all of the Sydney Flames and Kings players are shifting their focus to the off-season with their new teams – all around Australia and the world.

As a way to keep up with what all of them are doing, each Monday Hoops Capital will publish a weekly wrap of how their players are performing in their respective competitions.

In this week’s edition, we will start with Flames guard Lauren Nicholson.

During the past week, Flame #132 made her debut for Spar Girona in Spain, tallying two points, three rebounds, three blocks and one assist during her side’s 74-54 loss to Spain in the Liga Femenina Endesa.

A few days later, Nicholson – playing 32 minutes – added 13 points, three boards, two dimes and one block in her side’s tight 66-62 loss to Avenida Perfumerias.

Next up for Nicholson is a clash with IDK Gipuzkoa on March 16.


To the Kings side of Hoops Capital and Jordi Hunter made his Rigas Zelli debut over the weekend.

In their Paf Latvian-Estonian Basketball League fixture with Rapla, Hunter started and produced nine points, seven rebounds and two assists – during his 25:49 minutes on the court – in his side’s one-point (78-77) defeat.

Hunter’s outfit, who sit in sixth on the ladder with a 16-12 record, next take on Tartu Ülikool Maks&Moorits at Daugavas sporta nams.
