MOTR: SEM v ILL Feb 7

The Undefeated Hawks fly down to Melbourne to take on SE Melbourne Phoenix. The battle of the birds and people will flock to this game.

Phoenix are running LWLWL so all the mathematicians are predicted that the pattern will go W next. The Creeksters have their first home game and were unlucky to go down to their cross town rivals last game. Still that was then, this is now and Chairman Dan says it's time to play ball.

But the Hawks are slippery little suckers and seem to be flying high this season. Surely we can't have United as the only undefeated team this far into this season? I've been impressed by The Hawks this season, but what of this Andrew Ogilvy? Does he know AJ Ogilvy?

Gee... this game has OT and double OT written all over it. Hawks and Phoenix are both determined and I can see this being a bit of a high scoring game. Call Chuck Yeager, the 200 point barrier is going to be broken.

My kiss of death goes to Phoenix to win this on the last possession, by 1

Hawks got to many shooters, very deep squad which is amazing compared to last season rabble.

Phoenix will really compete but just aren't deep enough, they are well coached and it’ll be good watching Mitchell match wits with Goorj.

Hawks by seven.

Deng, turnover, turnover gives up a 2 and Deng makes a 2. Terrible. Drag him BG.

Hawks have been officially given the name Illawarra back by the NBL after their major sponsor purchased the remaining memberships needed to achieve the goal that the NBL required.

M.C.R refused to put any sponsorship money in unless Illawarra was returned to the name. The American owner agreed as no one else was putting in.

Mitchell is a very good coach, I cannot comment on him as I don't know him but to call him a flog is cheap rubbish.

Playing Cairns and Brisbane twice made the Hawks look good.

Is this game being played in the heartland of basketball? Thought I'd ask here as I haven't heard it mentioned on the broadcast yet.

Not sure, as I haven't seen it plastered all over the sideline either.

Well said anon #242, having an opinion does not mean you have knowledge.


Mitchell's coaching has been impressive, seems to have the players onside as well.
