Hobart have got its SEABL men’s season back on track after a convincing 88-65 win over the North-West Thunder in Ulverstone on Saturday night.
The Thunder were looking for redemption on their home court following a 57-point thrashing from the Chargers in the opening round.
But apart from a brief period in the first quarter, they were never in the game as the visitors dominated on both offence and defence and extended their margin from nine points at the first break to 21 points at half time and 25 points at the final change.
Mathiang Muo led Hobart with a game-high 30 points in his last game with the club before heading to China for a trial with the Sydney Kings, with Rob Heyer adding 18 points and point guard Chris Whitehead 14 points.
Import Jeremiah Ingram was the only shining light for the Thunder with 24 points, with Daniel Sepokas next best with 11 points.
Both teams host Canberra next week.
