This was news to me. Apparently Andrew Gaze said something during the commentary of our win over Sydney. Gaze is a legend, one of the best the Aussies have produced and has some contacts -- one of his mates is a scout for Houston and he sug- gested they might be keen on me. All of this is quite flattering I have to say but also nothing more than that. I have made no secret of my desire to one day play in the big leagues, either in Europe or ultimately in the NBA. ButfornowIam proudly a Burger King Breaker with this year and one more on my con- tract. I do have an option should something come up in Europe or the NBA next season but until there is something con- crete to deal with, I will keep my head down and continue to grow and learn in the Breakers' environment. That means working hard on and off court, learning from the likes of Andrej, Kirk, CJ, Gary -- you name a player or coach and I can learn something from them. It also means working hard in the gym to get stronger and bigger to cope with the physical side of the game not just now but in the future in whatever league I end up playing in. Right now though the focus is on our next Breakers game and that is tonight against the high-flying Cairns Tai- pans. Phill Jones' side is on a five-game winning streak and sits just one game back from us on the table -- a win would see them draw level with us and the Hawks. They play an up-tempo style of game so it should be a thriller. We are playing with plenty of confidence at the moment after the road win over Sydney but know that one lapse, one poor game can be costly at the end of the season. Tonight is also our Christmas party for the fans so come along dressed accordingly and bring the family for the visit of the man in the red suit. Northcote step up to the plate for win Those who thought Northcote were built on the talents of star Brad Rona were proven wrong on Saturday. The depleted squad took on Auckland cham- pions Waitakere Bears in the softball fastpitch championship and won. It was expected to be a Bears' victory, even if they had lost inter- national twins Paddy and Heinie Shannon. But Northcote ram- med home eight runs in the second inning, with few hits but some fierce shots which forced errors, plus three walks, andwentontowinbyan 11-3 margin with only a big Bears' home run late in the game to prevent major blushes. The early hero was national squad member Pita Rona, Brad's 17-year-old son. They are one of the few father-son combinations in any national squad and Pita showed his class with a fine pitching display when he took over his father's club position. The tall young man has exciting potential and playing in the same squads as his father presents few problems. Part-way through he was replaced by Hone Mark-Sinnott who pitch- ed to the end, proving the pair can replace big Brad, the top pitcher and batter in the city. Northcote should carry on the charge to the title against Eden-Roskill and Howick at Rosedale Park this weekend. The Roosters -- so good for so long -- dropped form to lose 6-0 to Marist away from home. Next up for the Roosters are the Ramblers at Rose- dale Park.
