KNOX Raiders women secured a nail-biting win over Hobart Chargers at the State Basketball Centre on Sunday .
Some last-quarter heroics by Kelly Wilson and Amy Denson were the difference in a see-sawing South East Australian Basketball League affair, with a staggering 18 lead changes throughout the game.
Hobart came into the contest fifth on the ladder but its position was no reflection of how the first half took place.
The Chargers led at the half 39-37, with Caila DesRoches and Kylie McCauley limiting the Raiders' impact on the glass.
It looked like a different Raiders outfit came out in the third quarter, as they skipped to a seven-point lead, only for Hobart's Lindsay Laur and Alexandra Finlayson to stem the flow with two late three-pointers to cut it back to a two-point ball game at three-quarter-time.
Five quick points to Myra Donkin at the start of the final term saw the Chargers back in front, but the Raiders clawed their way back with
Wilson's seven points in the final term, including clutch free throws with nine seconds left, helping guide the Raiders to a scratchy 71-68 victory.
Denson finished with 22 points and seven rebounds while Wilson had 18 points including four three-pointers, six rebounds and five assists.
The Raiders face the winless Albury-Wodonga Bandits in Albury on Saturday night.
