10.15pm That is that. The Sixers move to second on the BBL standings and seal their spot in the semis. Rain kept interrupting their chase, but Vince and Hughes coolly finished off the game in the #Sydneysmash. Hughes is the Player of the Match. That's all we have for you from this game. Goodbye and good night
