WNBA superstar Liz Cambage hopes to lead the Flyers – formerly the Dandenong Rangers – to their first WNBL title when they meet with the fire at Townsville Stadium that opens at 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon ( AEDT) begins.
In their first season in the league in two years, Cambage was colossal for the Flyers, averaging 24. 4 points per game – almost six more than the next best player – and a league-high 1. 7 blocks.

But Cambage and the fliers are about to face a hot-dip Townsville outfit heading for its fourth WNBL championship in seven seasons.
The unlikely rise of the fire to the grand finale was recently spearheaded by child prodigy Shyla Heal – the 19-year-old daughter of four-time Australian Olympian Shane Heal – who scored a 28-point win over Melbourne in the semifinals ahead of a 30-point win against the Flyers Boomers in a preliminary final.
The Fire will rely heavily on Heal, as well as the much improved Lauren Nicholson and rising star Zitina Aokuso, to lead the team to victory under coach Shannon Seebohm.
The Flyers, however, have the strongest starting line-up in the league, including Cambage, Opals captain Jenna O’Hea, 3×3 star Bec Cole, Opal Sara Blicavs and WNBA cannon Leilani Mitchell.
There were some doubts whether O’Hea would play in the grand final due to an injury, but she confirmed on Sunday morning that she would qualify for the Flyers.
The WNBL 2020 campaign was crammed into a chaotic seven week schedule. All eight clubs are moving to Queensland to end the season.
On Sunday everything culminates in an exciting finale between Cambage’s Flyers and Heal’s Fire, which ends around 3 p.m..
