Dramatic win sees Nottingham Hoods beat the drop in EBL

Basketball: Danny Wong’s lay-up with four seconds left meant Nottingham Hoods beat the drop as they took their win or bust game against Derby Trailblazers 60-58.

Hoods knew they would be relegated from EBL Division 3 if they lost, after Tees Valley had won the night before.

At the end of a tight first quarter Derby led 16-14.

Derby just kept their noses ahead as they continued to hit some big threes in the second. Sarunas Dargis and Wong were hitting everything, but they still trailed 30-26.

The third quarter saw the whole team step up a gear. Hoods tied the game with 30 seconds left before a steal by Apostolis Apostolidis and a pin-point pass to Wong saw him win it dramatically.
