Happy new NBL season everyone! Hope you’ve been watching the OneHD delayed games *cough* or been naughty like us & watched the live pirated web stream of the Tigers & Kings game the other night.
Tonight the Wollongong Hawks will be playing the NZ Breakers at the Sand Pit in Wollongong. We will be attending the game & bringing you some of the live action via a live blog via THIS page.
What’s a live blog? It is a blog that is updated frequently or live/on the go. We are doing this because it’s a Sunday game and even though One are showing a reply of the game at around 10:30pm, it IS a Sunday and we understand a lot of people need to go to work on Monday or to school so they can’t stay up to watch the reply.
Live blog gives you something a little different to watching the live score updates. We won’t be posting play by play, but we will be posting game updates every 2-3 minutes or so. Noteable plays, what the atmosphere is like, players playing well, team moral etc. All the things you can’t pick up on a live box score score feed.
Will also post pics from the game!
You can also watch the game live over the net (don’t try if you have a wireless NextG internet connection)
Time: 7:00pm (eastern time), 7:30pm tip off
