NBL 3x3 Big Hustle - The Undeafted and The Fairytale

Hustle to the Win

The Women’s Team go undefeated from start to finish and the Men win in an overtime two point fairy tale moment.  

The TV Jets Women teaming up Tani Dhu, Danielle Totham, Frances Friel and their captain Keisha Tinley went undefeated through the competition to take the Women's Open Crown. Winning by four points to defeat their Lady Kites opponents 8 - 4, the athletes took to their media responsibilities after the match like veterans.  

In the Game immediately following the Women’s Grand Final, the Men’s competition saw the Oreos comprising only three players in Willie Shackleford, Lucas Duncan and Robbie Skinner take the court against the team “The King and The Duck” – in a low scoring hard defensive game, the score drew at the end on 4 all, going into overtime where the first team to two points would win the match. A frenzied minute followed before Duncan, 15, took the ball and then took the shot from outside to make the necessary two points. The crowd roared.

NBL Organiser Jaele Patrick said “the event was an incredible day, with good quality competition, a great crowd turn out that made for an excellent atmosphere. She looks forward to seeing the teams play at the next level, Pro Hustle.
