Full coverage of the Hawks While the Hawks would not reveal the 180cm New Yorker’s identity, the club is expected to have its official 10-man team at training next week.The new player will make his Wollongong debut against the Sydney Kings in a September 3 trial at the Snakepit.Meanwhile, Hawks fans will get their first peek at off-season recruit Oscar Forman when Wollongong battles Hartford University on Friday night at the Snakepit.Forman and the incoming import are the club’s only new faces on the playing roster for next season.”Oscar’s been training well and shooting the ball well. He gives us another guy who can stick the perimeter shot and looks like he’ll fit in well with what we do,” Hawks assistant coach Eric Cooks said.Former Illawarra junior rep and Gold Coast Blaze guard Tyson Demos will line up for the Hawks against the touring Americans.Missing from the home team will be Tim Coenraad and Rhys Martin, who will be playing for the Mackay Meteors in the Queensland semi-finals.Pint-sized point guard Zac Delaney will suit up for the Hawks, but they will be light on backcourt generals.”Last year we had a similar situation against Vanderbilt where we started (shooting guard) Mat (Campbell) at the point guard, and there’s a good chance Tyson will get some minutes at point guard on Friday,” Cooks said.With Hawks coach Gordie McLeod still undergoing treatment in hospital for blood clots, Cooks and fellow assistant coach Matt Flinn will guide the team on Friday.A Hawks Legends game featuring several of the club’s all-time greats will follow the main match.
