Cedric
Jackson
The New Zealand Breakers have made a clean sweep of the National Basketball Leagues awards for November, with Andrej Lemanis winning Coach of the Month and import guard Cedric 'Action' Jackson (191-G-86, college: Cleveland St.) taking out Player of the Month.

Jackson was simply superb in the iiNet NBL Championship in November, twice winning Player of the Week honours in the period (in Rounds Six and Nine). In six games Jackson averaged 18.2 points, 9.2 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 steals.

Jackson, who was recently named as a starter for the South team in the 2012 NBL All-Star Game to be held in Adelaide on Saturday, made 45-of-88 shots from the field in November at a 51% accuracy rate.

He highlighted his multi-faceted game by recording a rare triple-double in Round Nine with 28 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in a 94-64 victory over the Melbourne Tigers.

Jackson took out the monthly award after polling 61 votes, finishing comfortably ahead of Octobers Player of the Month Ben Madgen (Sydney Kings) on 29 and Wollongong import Adris '2Hard2Guard' Deleon on 23.

Jacksons coach Andrej Lemanis was also honoured for his efforts in November by being named the Coach of the Month.

Lemanis led the Breakers to a league-best 5-1 record for the period, as he showed that the reigning back-to-back iiNet NBL Champions were on track in their campaign to record a three-peat.

New Zealand started the month with four straight wins, downing Sydney, Cairns and Townsville (twice). After suffering their only stumble of the period with a road loss to Perth, the Breakers then bounced back with a strong victory over the Melbourne Tigers.

Lemanis was a comfortable winner of the November award after polling 55 votes to finish ahead of last months honouree Gordie McLeod of Wollongong on 38 and Sydneys Shane Heal (32 votes).

The NBL's Player and Coach of the Month for November took into account Rounds Five through Nine of the iiNet NBL Championship inclusive. All NBL Head Coaches and accredited media were eligible to vote for the awards.
