NBL: Melbourne United defeat Illawarra Hawks in all-time NBL classic


WELL, that seemed like it would never end.

When we thought the game was won, an incredible shot would give us more free basketball, making for what will likely end up as an NBL classic.

It took four overtimes, but the defending champions managed to start their season with a bang; Melbourne United defeating the Illawarra Hawks 123-122 in nearly three hours of action.

Casper Ware played just under 56 minutes, but came up with the game-winning rotation and verticality to give United the stop that won them the game. he had 15 points, six rebounds, and seven assists, while Josh Boone led the way for United with 24 points and 13 rebounds.

“It felt like we won the game two or three times,” United head coach, Dean Vickerman, said postgame. ”But they were good enough to make great shots, and Blanchfield makes big shots, and that thing just kept ticking over.”
