Hull Wasps narrowly defeated DABA Pawprint All-Stars 74-72 after a nail biting overtime period.

Hull leaped out to a 15-2 lead against a team made up of the best players from the Doncaster Area Basketball League. But the visitors clawed their way back to 17-17, before the end of the first quarter, which established the tit-for-tat nature of the rest of the game.

The two sides could not be separated in 40 minutes and huffed and puffed their way into a five-minute overtime period.

In a game that could have gone either way, the Wasps managed to pip their opponents, who’s Hull connection included former Wasps head coach Jimmy
Coulson, former Stingers forward Graham Smurthwaite and ex-Icebergs centre Phil Gaughan.
