WNBL REPLAY: Sydney Uni Flames v Southside Flyers

Southside Flyers cemented their spot at the top of the WNBL table with a comeback win against the Sydney Uni Flames on Thursday night.

The Flyers went in as heavy favourites but had to produce a last-quarter burst to run down the Flames to win 81-77.

Southside will finish the final regular season with a clash against the reigning champions, the Canberra Capitals on Sunday at 3pm.

Meantime, Australian basketball legend Shane Heal believes it is a foregone conclusion that Southside Flyers superstar Liz Cambage will win this season's WNBL MVP.

Cambage has been outstanding for the table-topping Flyers in her first Australian campaign since also starring for the Melbourne Boomers in 2017/2018.

As the Flyers standout player, she leads the league in points scored (24.1) and blocks (2.0) while she is ranked fifth in total rebounds (8.2).

The Opals centre has previously claimed the WNBL MVP award playing with the Bulleen Boomers back in 2011. And according to Heal, Cambage is charging towards the award again in 2020.

"You can't go past Liz," Heal said on the Basketball Show.

"She is averaging 22 points a game and nine rebounds in 22 minutes.

"You multiply that out and she is averaging like 40 and 18 almost.

"It is unbelievable stats, and she is doing it however she wants."
