Breakers win minor premiership

THE New Zealand Breakers clinched the minor premiership with a hard-fought 91-76 road victory over the Adelaide 36ers on Saturday.

The plucky Sixers remained in striking distance for much of the contest but couldn't sustain the pressure long enough to seriously challenge the top side.

New Zealand sealed each of the first three quarters with last-gasp buckets and their composure was the difference between the two sides.

The visitors had too many offensive weapons as Thomas Abercrombie collected 10 of his 22 points in the final quarter, Gary Wilkinson nailed 21 and Cedric Jackson struck early to finish with 17 points and seven assists.

Daniel Johnson continued his consistent season with 21 points and nine rebounds for Adelaide, import Diamond Simpson collected 19 points and 11 rebounds with his mum watching on from the stands.
