Wildcats Off-Season Wrap – 12 June 2017

Corey Webster and the Wellington Saints have made New Zealand NBL history, completing the 2017 year with a perfect 18-0 record.

Their nearest rivals sit six games behind them in the standings.

Webster has by far been the most prolific player on the roster, averaging a league-leading 26 points per game, finishing the season with 25 against Nelson.

Jarrod Kenny finished his NZ NBL campaign with impressive 17 and 25-point performances, though his Taylor Hawks did not qualify for the post-season.

The Final Four (semi-finals and final) takes place this weekend in Tauranga.

 

Back home, Corban Wroe had a 16-point and seven-assist outing for the Stirling Senators, while Mason Bragg was one point shy of a double-double for East Perth with nine points and ten assists.

 

In the QBL, Lucas Walker once again stuffed the stat sheet with 24 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and a steal.

His Mackay Meteors racked up 130 points in a demolition of the Brisbane Spartans.

 

In off-season signing news, Wildcats 2017 championship-winning big man Jameel McKay has signed with top-tier Spanish side Bilbao for the 2017/18 Liga ACB season.

The club wishes him the very best!
