NZ Breakers announce Preseason games (THE BREAKERS ARE COMING TO THE TRON!!!!!)

Reigning ANBL Champions (it still feels good saying that), the New Zealand Breakers, have announced three preseason games. One of them in Tauranga against the Wollongong Hawks, another at the North Shore Events Centre, a repeat of last year, with a game against the NZNBL All Stars. However, it’s the first game that’s being played that has got me all excited.

The Breakers are coming down to Hamilton! As a Breakers fan who spends most of the year in Hamilton, that makes me quite happy. They will be playing the Wollongong Hawks at the brand new Claudelands Event Centre on September 15th, about three weeks out from the start of the 2011/12 season. It’s quite fitting that the first two preseason games are against the Wollongong Hawks, as the Breakers play Wollongong in the first round of the new season.
