Mika Vukona
A stand-out double-double' performance by New Zealand Breakers veteran Mika Vukona (198-F-82) has seen him capture the National Basketball League's Player of the Week award for Round Three of the iiNet NBL Championship.

Vukona recorded double-figures in two key statistical categories in his team's 73-71 home win over the Townsville Crocodiles on Friday. The Fijian-born star scored 15 points and amassed 15 rebounds, as well as adding three assists and three steals. He made 6-of-11 field goal attempts, shooting at an accurate 55%.

The 198cm athletic forward fired his team up early in the game with some strong words in a team time-out and then led by example, making two key defensive plays down the stretch to seal the narrow win.

Vukona took out the Round Three honours from Adelaide's Adam Gibson. The 2012 Olympian had a game-high 21 points as well as five rebounds, two assists and two steals as the 36ers defeated the Cairns Taipans 85-81 at the Adelaide Arena on Saturday.

Cairns Taipans import Jamar Wilson was also a strong candidate for the weekly honour after helping his team to a split of their road-double in Round Three.

Wilson had 22 points, four rebounds and four assists as the Snakes opened the round with an 88-68 win over Sydney on Friday. The lightning quick guard then backed up with 16 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in the Taipans' 85-81 loss to Adelaide the next night.

Other leading contenders for Player of the Week in Round Three included Adris Deleon (Wollongong), Luke Schenscher (Adelaide), Kevin Lisch (Perth), Matt Knight (Perth), Gary Ervin (Townsville), Oscar Forman (Wollongong), Ben Madgen (Sydney), Seth Scott (Melbourne) and Kevin Braswell (Melbourne).

Tall Blacks finish third in Atlas Challenge after beating hosts China - 4 days ago

The Tall Blacks have finished third at the Atlas Challenge in China, after a fiercely fought and often controversial playoff match against the host nation on Sunday night, winning 90-84. Rebounding after what was by their own admission a disappointing semifinal performance, the Tall Blacks responded to the urging of their coach to "overcome adversity" and ground out a win, despite losing three players to five fouls and ending the game with a further three on the brink of fouling out.

Tall Blacks run ends in semifinals - 5 days ago

The Tall Blacks run at the Atlas Challenge in China has come to an end in the semifinals, beaten 80-65 by a fired up Lithuania team, leaving the New Zealanders to play in the third place playoff on the final day against either China or Iran. After marching through group play unbeaten and showing great hustle on defence and sharing the load offensively, tonight was a flat performance in which the Tall Blacks were always behind. The New Zealanders lost the rebound count (31-35) and shot poo...   [read more]

Tall Blacks crush China - 7 days ago

The Tall Blacks have made it three from three on their overseas tour, crushing hosts China 98-74 overnight. The visitors were in command the whole encounter in a promising all-around display, booking a semifinal spot at the Atlas International Basketball Challenge. Following victories over Belarus and Japan, the romp against the more favoured China was the most commanding of the lot, and will continue to boost the confidence within the camp. Aside from an early 7-5 lead, China barely thre...   [read more]
