Breakers complete a successful Sunshine Swing

Against Cairns Taipans on Friday night Ekene Ibekwe had a stand out game securing his second double double of the season – 20 points/14 rebounds. The 14 rebounds equaled the record for the most boards by a Breakers player against Cairns.

Two weeks after Alex Pledger passed 1,000 points for the club Cedric Jackson became the 14th Breaker to join the list. Jackson reached the mark in the same number of games (73) as former Breakers favourite Phill Jones.

The full list of leading scorers for the club:

2517 Kirk Penney

2049 C J Bruton

2005 Tom Abercrombie

1831 Mika Vukona

1800 Aaron Olson

1451 Ben Pepper

1423 Gary Wilkinson

1372 Phill Jones

1320 Paul Henare

1265 Oscar Forman

1037 Tony Ronaldson

1034 Alex Pledger

1034 Mike Chappell

1021 Cedric Jackson


Against the Townsville Crocodiles the Breakers shot a very efficient 55% (32 from 58 shots) from the field including 53% (8 from 15) threes. Both efforts were the best by the team, statistically speaking this season. For once the free throw shooting was reasonable, 75% a huge improvement on the horror effort in Cairns – 5 from 15.

Tom Abercrombie led the Breakers scoring with 19 points at the same time becoming just the third Breakers player to score 2,000 points – see list above. His shooting on the night was hugely influential, missing just one shot as he knocked down three triples and four three throws amongst others.

The two road wins in Cairns and Townsville were the SKY CITY Breakers third and fourth road victories of the season in six excursions. This already exceeds the total of three away wins achieved in the whole of last season.
