Hudson shines in Breakers win - Dec 28, 2012

Mike's Articles

Will Hudson (206-F/C-89, college: Oakland) led the Sky City Breakers to a remarkable come from behind victory, 71-66 over the Adelaide 36ers at Adelaide Arena on Friday night. The win strengthened the Breakers (10-3) position at the top of the table but consigned the 36ers (5-8) to a fifth consecutive defeat and a remarkable 13th consecutive loss to the New Zealand club.

The Breakers trailed by 21 points at half time, 49-21 as they showed an inability to contain the threat of the Adelaide Twin Towers, Luke Schenscher and Daniel Johnson. The two seven footers scored at will in the first half combining for 34 points, completely dominating Alex Pledger and his fellow forwards.

The second half was a different story as the Breakers lifted the intensity of their defence and also employed full court pressure as often as possible. Power forward Mika Vukona set the tone, always threatening the inbounds pass or attempting to trap the point guard before sprinting back to resume normal duties marking the dangerous Johnson who he kept to zero points in the second period. Cedric Jackson was his normal all action self, contributing 17 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists but it was back up centre Will Hudson who stole the show on his way to a career high 23 points. The performance of Hudson was even more meritorious considering he had hardly played or trained in four weeks having incurred concussion in the defeat at Sydney earlier in the month and missed the last game against Cairns as a result of the head injury. The 69 forward from Wisconsin has had a quiet start to his Breakers career since being added to the Breakers squad at the start of the season but in this game he showed the qualities that he was signed for. He was tough on defence a constant threat on the boards, garnering seven offensive rebounds and converted a high percentage of his shots; 10 from 15 from the field.
The Breakers remain in Australia to take on the Cairns Taipans on New Years Eve while the Adelaide 36ers must regroup quickly as they face three games in the next eight days. Three games that may determine the future of 36ers coach Marty Clarke.
