The Illawarra Hawks shot the ball at just 19% from the 3 point line in their loss to the Wildcats, but did protect the ball and only had four turnovers.

In a short period of time, they turned around the poor shooting form and went 15/30 from the three-point line in their 100-89 win over the 36ers. Harry Froling went 8/10 from the three in an impressive display.

The NBL continues to be hard to predict at the moment, but the Hawks found some form a couple of days back and will fancy themselves in this one.
