Cedric Jackson wins NBL Round 9 POTW

New Zealand Breakers star import Cedric 'Action' Jackson has been named the National Basketball League’s Player of the Week for Round Nine of the iiNet NBL Championship after registering a rare ‘triple-double’ in his side’s rollicking win over the Melbourne Tigers.

Jackson picked up his second Player of the Week award - he also won in Round Six - after an amazing 28-point, 10-rebound, 10-assist performance as the Breakers scored an easy 94-64 victory over the Tigers on Friday in Auckland.

In the process, Jackson became the first ever Breakers player to have a triple-double (double-figures in three major statistical categories) and did it in just 25:45 of playing time.

Jackson also added four steals for good measure and dominated his highly anticipated match-up with former number six NBA Draft pick Jonny Flynn of the Tigers.

Jackson shot 71% from the field (12-of-15) including 50% from the perimeter (2-of-4) and made both his free-throw attempts.
Runners up were Redhage (24/9/2 in a home win) and Ervin (22/6/5 in a home win also).
Other contenders for Player of the Week in Round Nine included Kevin Lisch (Perth), Aaron Bruce (Sydney), Adam Gibson (Adelaide), Rhys Martin (Wollongong), Jonny Flynn (Melbourne), Luke Schenscher (Adelaide), Jamar Wilson (Cairns) and Jacob Holmes (Townsville).

Easy choice this week. Give him two awards even.

Pretty close to the perfect game possible in 25 minutes of court time.

he even managed to argue his way back on to the court after Lemmanis subbed him off 1 assist short. Cedric straight dominated that game. He was everywhere and seemed to do everything for NZ. hell of a player is that Cedric Johnson lol
