Crocs rise to fourth straight ANBL win

8:30 am on 26 January 2012

The Townsville Crocs registered their fourth straight Australian National Basketball League win by defeating the Adelaide 36ers 79-69 in a dour affair at The Swamp.

The Crocs did only what was needed to hold on after jumping to a double-figure lead midway through the second quarter, where three consecutive triples from Peter Crawford broke the game open.

The 36ers failed to mount a genuine challenge, having one brief moment of hope early in the second quarter when emerging superstar Daniel Johnson unleashed a nine-point scoring spree.

The home side are now third on the ANBL ladder while the 36ers remain second to last.
