The Hunters (2-5) showed some promising early signs and led 25-18 at quarter-time and 37-32 at the long break, but the Bears bared their claws when it mattered and held the Hunters to just 26 second-half points.

Swingman Ryan Beisty scored a game-high 21 points and was well supported by forward Matt Holmes (13), but the rest of the Hunters shot a combined 11 of 45 (24.4 per cent) from the floor.

“We started well, but our scoring productivity was inadequate in the second, third and fourth quarters,” Hunters coach Larry Davidson said.

“We kept Norths to a final score that was within our reach, but unfortunately we didn’t have enough players score in double figures.”

Norths (5-1) leap-frogged Newcastle (6-2) into top spot with a 73-64 victory in the WBL women’s game at Broadmeadow on Saturday. It was the Bears’ second win against Newcastle this season.

Guard Sophie Kleeman scored a game-high 21 points for the Hunters, Jasmine Forcadilla chipped in with 12 points, Amanda Bendeich had 11 points and seven rebounds, and “bigs” Sophie Parente and Charlotte Bull pulled down 11 and 10 rebounds respectively.

The Hunters held Norths’ top scorers Renae Camino (17 points) and Mikaela Dombkins (11) below their season averages, but Maddison Penn (16 points) and Kristen Barnes (13) picked up the scoring slack for the visitors.

Former Newcastle and Maitland guard Dombkins also tallied 11 rebounds and six assists, and Kate Cranney contributed eight points, 17 rebounds, four steals and three blocks.

Meanwhile, men’s leaders Manly (6-2) registered a 76-62 victory over Maitland Mustangs (3-5) at Maitland Federation Centre on Saturday night.

American imports Mitchell Rueter (16 points, nine rebounds) and Terrell Turner (16 points, eight rebounds) led the way for Maitland, and Goran Veg had 10 points and five rebounds in his first game for the Mustangs this season.

● The NBA Players Association and reportedly the league itself are looking into the arrest of Atlanta Hawks forward Thabo Sefolosha in New York.

Swiss-born Sefolosha and Hawks teammate Pero Antic were charged with resisting arrest at a nightclub in the pre-dawn hours on Wednesday.

Both have said they will contest the charges.

Sefolosha suffered a season-ending broken right leg and ligament damage somewhere in the process.

Videos posted on website TMZ showed police aggressively trying to restrain him and taking him to the ground. One video shows an officer wielding a baton, but it was unclear if Sefolosha was hit.

Police say Sefolosha refused multiple orders to disperse and charged an officer. AFP
