Coffs Harbour’s best basketball teams have booked their places in this season’s grand finals during a big night of semi-final action at Sportz Central.
The Coffs Harbour Basketball Association’s A-grade semi-final between Artisti and Hardknockz came right down to the wire, with Artisti holding a three-point lead with five minutes to go.
Artisti held a two-point lead with a minute and a half left in the contest, before holding their nerve and finishing with a 6-1 run to win 51-44.
Artisti will now play the minor premiers Grafton Vikings in next week’s grand final, after the Vikings progressed to the season decider due to a forfeit.
