The NBL has locked in its schedule for Round 4, which includes Brian Goorjian's much-anticipated return to Melbourne.
Goorjian's undefeated Hawks will face the South East Melbourne Phoenix on Feb. 7 in what is a coming home of sorts for the veteran coach, given he was in charge of the now defunct South East Melbourne Magic between 1992 and 1998.
Round 4 also sees the second "Sunshine Stoush" between the Cairns Taipans and Brisbane Bullets while Melbourne United host the reigning premiers Perth Wildcats at Bendigo Stadium.
