Breakers and Wildcats kick off ANBL season - Sep 29, 2012

Alex Pledger
It is fitting that the two best teams from last season kick start the 2012-2013 iiNet ANBL season. Just 164 days after the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers won their second iiNet Championship on a memorable night at Vector Arena, the Perth Wildcats are back in Auckland. Games between the Breakers and the Wildcats are always hard fought, intense affairs as we witnessed in the Finals series in April.
The opening game of the season always holds extra interest for the fans as they get to view new additions to the team for the first time, Will Hudson arrives at the Breakers from the recently disbanded Gold Coast Blaze. The 23 years old power forward was a standout at Oakland University before helping the Blaze to the semi-finals of the ANBL last season. He averaged 9.5ppg and 6.0 rebounds expect similar productivity from the American this season as he joins Alex Pledger (213-C-87, college: Belm.Abbey), Dillon Boucher and Mika Vukona in a powerful front court.

Corey Webster returns to the club after a twelve months break. He is a product of the Breakers development programme has played 41 games for the Breakers over three seasons, scoring 129 points at 3.1 points per game. Much will be expected of Webster this season as he provides valuable cover at the point and shooting guard spots.
Also look out for the captain of the 2012 Junior Tall Blacks, Reuben Te Rangi who was voted New Zealand National Basketball League Rookie of the Year after an eye catching season with the Harbour Heat. Not expected to play many minutes, the 17 year old, in his first season as a Development Player is viewed by the coaching staff as a player of the future.

Like the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers the Perth Wildcats have a very similar line up to last season. They have parted company with giant centre Luke Nevill and guard Drew Williamson but added Hawkes Bay favourite Everard Bartlett who debuted for the Tall Blacks in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament earlier in the year. Like team mates Jeremiah Trueman and Shawn Redhage, Bartlett had a spell with the Breakers a few seasons back.

The two teams played each other six times last season with two of the games going to overtime and three of the other encounters decided by six points or less. The Wildcats have had the more solid pre-season winning seven games on the trot and also won the recent National Basketball preseason tournament, at which the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers finished fourth. Not sure any of this will count for much when the two teams cross the white line onto the court but television and live fans can expect another intense affair between the two top teams in Australasia.
