Back to back double doubles by Cedric Jackson propelled the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers to a successful Sunshine Swing road trip, as the defending champions overcame the Townsville Crocodiles 81-72 and the Cairns Taipans 73-54. The wins, even more meritorious when considered they were played on consecutive nights, took the club back to the top of the iiNet ANBL championship ladder. Once again Cedric Jackson was outstanding. Across the two games he averaged 17 points, 12 assists, 4 rebounds and 2 steals to underline his status as the number one point guard in the competition. Against the Crocs on Friday he was credited with 2 steals but I think the stats team in Townsville were mesmerised by Cedrics performance as I am sure I witnessed at least four on the TV coverage. The slippery floor at The Swamp contributed to a couple of highlight reel moments. Mika Vukona grabbed a steal (also missed by the statistician) off Gary Ervin and then made a fake and pass whilst still on the ground. This was followed in the second half by Daryl Corletto nutmeging an opponent with a pass after he also had slid to the floor. Daryl had his best outing of the season scoring a game high 19 points.


Normal court conditions resumed in Cairns where the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers pretty much led from start to finish. 26-14 ahead after the first quarter the SKY CITY Breakers continued to put the clamps on the Cairns offence and held them to just 54 points, the lowest score ever by an opposition team in a regular season game. Alex Pledger was on the receiving end of a couple of mystifying foul calls resulting in Will Hudson getting extended court time. The big man from Wisconsin responded admirably knocking down 14 points, to go with 9 rebounds and 2 blocks.

The peculiarity of the draw sees us play the Townsville Crocodiles for the third time in four weeks. The SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers are 11-7 at home against the Townsville Crocodiles who may still be without starting centre Ben Allen who missed last Fridays game due to illness. Ahead of the acid test a visit to Perth and a further tangle with rivals the Wildcats, the team will be keen to continue their winning ways.


What a few months it has been for young Rueben Te Rangi. A product of the Counties Manukau Junior representative programme Reuben has made the leap from junior representative and school basketball to the Breakers senior squad in a little over 12 months.

Te Rangi has been a member of the Breakers Academy programme for a few years but he really sprung to prominence in September 2011 when he was a member of the New Zealand 3x3 team at the World Youth Championships held in Rimini, Italy.
New Zealand fielded a team that comprised of James Ashby, Isaac Fotu and Tai Webster as well as Rueben. Although talented and athletic it was still a surprise that the team took out the gold medal becoming the first New Zealand team to win a FIBA World Championship event.

This year Rueben played for the Harbour Heat in the Bartercard New Zealand National Basketball League and acquitted himself really well. His consistent play (averaging 9 points per game) resulted in him receiving the NBL Rookie of the Year Award and he impressed the SKY CITY New Zealand Breakers coaching staff enough to be awarded one of three Development Player contracts for this season. Te Rangi enjoyed significant court time in the pre season outings against Wollongong Hawks but had to wait until last Friday to get the call from Andrej Lemanis to taste the real thing.

Captain of the 2012 Junior Tall Blacks the talented 18 year old has a bright basketball future if he continues his current rate of progress and it wont be a surprise if coach Lemanis gives him a few more opportunities as the season progresses.
