Worcester Wolves outlasted Surrey Scorchers 152-150 after four periods of overtime to create the highest scoring game in BBL history.

It surpassed Thames Valley Tigers’ 145-144 quadruple overtime win over Derby Storm in 1997.

And an epic game had an astonishing finish with Morakinyo Williams missing two free throws which would have levelled – and forced only the second quintuple OT clash ever in the league – with 0.2 secs left.

Both teams now rank first and second in game tallies in the BBL and they shot ferociously.

Worcester, who had head coach Tony Garbelotto ejected in the fourth quarter, went 57/109 from the field and Surrey 54/116 with the Scorchers attempting 41 free throws.

Robert Crawford scored 33 to lead the Wolves with Quincy Taylor matching that for Surrey in what proved to be an unforgettable contest between the BBL’s bottom two this season.
