12:53 pm on 31 May 2009

Hawkes Bay have set themselves up to grab the sixth and last position in the National Basketball League play-offs after beating the Stars 84-80 in Auckland.

The Hawks almost conspired to throw the game away after being up by as many as 17 early in the fourth quarter.

Chuck Bailey top scored for the Hawks with 25 points.

There are two weekends remaining in the regular season.
