In case you missed it, the Wollongong Hawks took down the Townsville Crocodiles on Saturday night in their NBL semi-final match-up, putting the Steel City team through to the NBL Grand Final series against the Perth Wildcats. The Hawks defeated Croc Nation 88-76, with a strong all-around display by the team as five players scored between 12 and 16 points (boxscore). Corey Williams’ huge 27 points, seven rebounds and five assists was not enough for the visitors.
Dave Gruber was one such Hawks catalyst, scoring 15 points to go along with five rebounds and a dunk over Rolan Roberts that got the local crowd excited in the ‘Gong. You can check out the dunk in isolation on the quality dunks site, Get Banged On, as well as watching on below. The guys at the Hawks have put together a compilation of Gruber’s highlights from the game along with the post-game press conference.
Game one of the Grand Final series will be played 5 March in Perth, with Game two on 9 March in Wollongong and the final game (if required) back in Perth on 12 March.
