    The New Zealand Breakers have held on to beat the Illawarra Hawks in their Australian Basketball League match in Auckland.

    The margin was narrowed to two with seven minutes still on the clock before the rot was stopped, almost single-handedly, by veteran Breakers import Sek Henry.

    The Breakers ended their five-game losing streak by beating the Hawks 91-78.

    Next up the Breakers meet the Taipans on Friday at 9.30 our time.



    Latrell Mitchell has made contact with Rugby Australia about a potential switch to the 15-man code.

    The Australian rugby league representative has been searching for some long-term security within the NRL, but the Roosters and Wests Tigers pulled such offers.

    The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting Mitchell's advisors have contacted Rugby Australia to determine if he would be a genuine Wallabies candidate.

    Mitchell was the NRL's top points scorer in 2019, en route to helping them win a second consecutive title.
