Taipans defeat Tigers

CAIRNS Taipans defeated the Melbourne Tigers, 79-77, in overtime on Saturday night.

While Ayinde Ubaka's last ditch shot hit the target, a video replay confirmed it was made after time expired and the former Taipan was denied the points.

Ubaka, who scored 18 points, Ron Dorsey and Daniel Dillon shocked Cairns last year by moving to Melbourne. Ubaka's replacement, Jamar Wilson, scored 27 points for the Taipans.

Today, Adelaide plays New Zealand. The game can be streamed from 4.15pm (AEDST) via www.nbl.com.au.
