Cedric
Jackson

It wasnt pretty at times last week but the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers, on the back of some sterling defensive work eventually overcame the Adelaide 36ers 73-59 in front of a crowd of 6,625 at Vector Arena. Remarkably it was the clubs 12th straight victory over their South Australian rivals. The game was still in the balance at three quarter time, the 36ers 47-46 in the ascendancy. However, led by Cedric Jackson (191-G-86, college: Cleveland St.) (17 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists and 5 steals) the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers dominated the final period 27-12 and eased to the win. Challenged by head coach Andrej Lemanis to improve their performances Alex Pledger and Will Hudson gave a dominant display. Pledger had a double double of 15 points and 10 rebounds plus 3 blocks and Hudsonwas almost as impressive pulling down 9 boards to go with 9 points and a block a mighty display by the two Bigs.

The last time the Breakers played the Townsville Crocodiles was at Vector Arena last April in the third and decisive semi final clash and they will be keen to avenge the loss they suffered at the hands of the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers that night.
It is great to see Russell Hinder back on court; Hinder missed the whole of last season after breaking a leg in the pre season tournament. He will be joined in the front court by rebounding tyro Jacob Holmes the rejuvenated Ben Allen and Larry Abney who recently enjoyed a season with the Southland Sharks in the New Zealand National League. The signing of 2011 League MVP Gary Ervin is a major coup for the Crocs and his match up with our own Cedric Jackson should be fascinating to watch. Ervin will be joined in the back court by 2012 Olympian Peter Crawford. Crawford has of course gained notoriety in Auckland having committed that hard foul on Tom Abercrombie in the closing stages of the afore mentioned semi final.
The Crocodiles have lost their opening two games so they will be hungry for a victory. The 150th SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers game played in New Zealand should be a cracker.
The Breakers have called 7 venues home in their first 149 games with North Shore Events Centre hosting 109 of those (74 wins/35 losses). There were also 24 games at Trusts (9/15), 8 games at Vector Arena (7/1), 3 at Pacific Events Centre (0/3), 3 at Christchurch (2/1) and single visits to Wellington and Mystery Creek (both 0/1).
