Terrico
White
The Regular Season in NBL just started. Here is the last round review presented by ESL.

Perth Wildcats smashed Illawarra Hawks at home 101-61. They outrebounded Illawarra Hawks 37-26 including 27 on the defensive glass. Perth Wildcats looked well-organized offensively handing out 25 assists. Worth to mention a great performance of American guard Terrico White (196-90, college: Mississippi) who helped to win the game recording 20 points. International power forward Nick Kay (206-92, college: Metro St.) contributed with 14 points for the winners. American forward Brian Conklin (201-89, college: St.Louis) answered with 17 points for Illawarra Hawks. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Illawarra Hawks will play next round against strong Cairns Taipans trying to get back on the winning streak. Perth Wildcats will try to continue on its current victory against Bullets in Brisbane.
New Zealand Breakers (1-1) recorded a loss in Auckland. Hosts were defeated by Bullets (1-1) 86-73. International swingman Cameron Gliddon (197-89, college: Concordia Irvine) stepped up and scored 29 points and 6 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws) for the winners and Alonzo Gee chipped in 13 points and 6 rebounds. At the losing side New Zealand guard Corey Webster (188-88, college: Lambuth) responded with 23 points. New Zealand Breakers' coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Bullets will play against Perth Wildcats on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. New Zealand Breakers will play against Kings to get more than just one victory in their record.
An interesting game was also home defeat of Illawarra Hawks in a game in Gwynneville versus United (#2) 123-122. Illawarra Hawks were very close to get their first win. But it seems they have to wait a little bit longer. Josh Boone nailed a double-double by scoring 24 points, 13 rebounds and 5 blocks for the winning side. Andrew-James Ogilvy came up with a double-double by scoring 15 points and 21 rebounds for Illawarra Hawks in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. United will meet at home Adelaide 36ers (#4) in the next round. Illawarra Hawks will play against Cairns Taipans (#2) and hope to win that game.
We should not miss anothera road victory of Perth Wildcats (2-0) over Adelaide 36ers (1-1) 99-91. Bryce Cotton fired 22 points and 5 assists for the winners. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Perth Wildcats' next round opponent will be Bullets (#3) in Brisbane, which may be the game of the day. Adelaide 36ers will play on the road against United in Melbourne and hope to win that game.
Very important is a home loss of United (1-1) against New Zealand Breakers (1-1) on Sunday night. Host United was defeated by New Zealand Breakers in a tough game in Melbourne 81-88. It was a very good performance for Tai Wesley who helped to win the game recording 25 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. New Zealand Breakers will face Kings (#7) in Sydney in the next round. United will play at home against Adelaide 36ers (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last two games of round 1 Taipans beat Bullets on the road 88-70. Winless Kings lost to 36ers on its own court 83-94.
The most impressive performance of 1st round was 22 points and 10 rebounds by Daniel Johnson of 36ers.



Breakers - Bullets 73-86

New Zealand Breakers (1-1) recorded a loss in Auckland. Hosts were defeated by Bullets (1-1) 86-73.
