    BASK: Melbourne United outlast Hawks in thriller

    BASK: Melbourne United outlast Hawks in thriller


    NBL Hawks (WOLLONGONG)
    It took four overtime periods but a leg-weary Melbourne United have out-lasted the Illawarra Hawks in a remarkable NBL season-opener to claim a nailbiting 123-122 win on Friday night in Wollongong.
    Melbourne led by nine with seven minutes remaining in regulation before the Hawks bravely fought back to force overtime.
    But it took a further three extra periods before a result was finally determined.
    It was just the second time in NBL history that a game required four overtimes to determine a result.
    Illawarra's Todd Blanchfield poured in a game-high 26 points in his first game with the club since leaving Sydney in the off-season, while American centre Josh Boone led Melbourne with 24.
    AJ Ogilvy tallied 15 points and 21 rebounds for the Hawks and Chris Goulding added 23 for Melbourne.
