The Illawarra Hawks won’t have to rack their brains for a winning game plan when they host the Sydney Comets in this weekend’s sudden-death play-off at the Snakepit.
Title-holders Illawarra came from behind to beat the Comets 71-61 in Saturday night’s season-ending clash in Sydney, securing fourth spot with a 13-9 record and pushing Sydney to fifth.
Had the Hawks lost their final game, they would’ve had to return to Sydney for the elimination showdown with the Comets.
“We wouldn’t have been fazed about playing them again on their home court, but it’s good to secure a home final at the Pit and all the boys are looking forward to the play-offs,” Hawks guard Tyson Demos said. “It’s funny the way it’s worked out that we’re playing them again a week later. We beat them a month ago at home and now we’ve beaten them on their court, so we like the way we match up with them.”
Illawarra trailed by nine at half-time on Saturday before over-running the Comets with a devastating 44-25 second half.
Dan Jackson tallied a team-high 19 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, Phil Jordan had 14 points and 10 rebounds and Luke Dowson added 13 points.
