Round 11 of the Australian National Basketball League concluded on New Years Eve. As the curtain fell on 2012, a similar sight emerged as the New Zealand Breakers and Perth Wildcats again, as in 2011, emerged as the teams to beat.
The Breakers rounded out their two game road trip with a win in Cairns, 66-61, to take hold of top spot on the ladder with an 11-3 record. A couple of days earlier Perth Wildcats (9-4) had demolished the Kings (9-6) in Sydney 95-61. Wollongong Hawks (8-5), third on the table surprisingly lost at home to Melbourne Tigers 80-72 in overtime.
These four teams with 9 wins already under their belts have opened up a significant gap on the chasing four, Adelaide 36ers (5-9), Cairns Taipans (4-9), Melbourne Tigers (4-8) and Townsville Crocodiles (4-10).
In 2011 the Breakers and Wildcats also led the pack but were being challenged by Townsville, Cairns and the now defunct Gold Coast Blaze. This season the chasers are Wollongong who after a very strong start has lost four of their last five and the surprise package the Sydney Kings. The Shane Heal coached Kings have, up until their towelling against Perth played with real poise and confidence despite losing their senior guard James Harvey to a serious injury. Shooting guard Ben Madgen has been a revelation, leading the league in scoring at 18.6 ppg but the lack of a reliable scoring weapon in the post may ultimately hurt their title hopes.
The Hawks, Wildcats and Breakers have similar traits. All three teams have a solid group of experienced players who have been together for a number of seasons and know what championship winning basketball is about. All three clubs have stability on and off court and have stood behind their coaching teams even when they have not been as successful as they are currently. Andrej Lemanis at the Breakers and Rob Beveridge at the Wildcats have between them won the last three championships and despite the good showing of the Heal coached Kings and Gordie McLeod coached Hawks it is hard to bet against a repeat of last years final; Perth Wildcats versus New Zealand Breakers.

Kelman-Poto's double-double lands him Player of the Week award - 10 days ago
Forward Dominique Kelman-Poto (201-F) put on an amazing game in the last round for SC Rangers and receives a Interperformances Player of the Week award for round 7. He had a double-double of 26 points and 15 rebounds, while his team beat Taranaki MA (#6, 2-7) 93-86. SC Rangers maintains the 8th position in New Zealand league.
