Perfect off-season for Corey Webster

New Perth Wildcat Corey Webster’s Wellington Saints have made history in the New Zealand National Basketball League.

The Saints have torn apart the league and enter the Final Four with a prefect regular season record of 18 wins and zero losses.

They’re the first team to ever complete the NZNBL season undefeated.

Wildcats fans should be excited about how Webster is playing as well.

The guard leads the competition with 26.0 points per game, while shooting at 49%, with a season-high of 37 last month.

He’s also dropping 4.9 assists and grabbing 4.0 rebounds per game.

While the league is considered a tier below the NBL, it is still dotted with top-level talent.

Webster’s teammates at Wellington includes recent NBL talent in Josh Duinker, Leon Henry, Shea Ili and Tai Wesley.

His Wildcats teammate Jarrod Kenny also plays in the competition.

Wellington face Canterbury in Friday’s semi-final.

In a boost for the favourites, Oklahoma City centre Steven Adams made an appearance at team training earlier in the week.

The Saints coach said his presence helped take practice to a new level ahead of the all-important weekend.

Should they win the semi, they’ll go into Saturday night’s championship-decider.

Corey Webster will then look to show NBA scouts what he can do when he heads to Dallas for a mini-camp with the Mavericks.
