Bad Day On The Gold Coast For Crocs

Read below how Pat Mills successful Olympic campaign has impacted St Mary's College.

When people head to the Gold Coast they go there thinking of sun, surf and women in bikinis.

When the Crocs got to town it was all about rain, clouds and allowing their NBL team their first win of the season. That's right the Blaze have finally joined the winners list eleven games into the season.

They absolutely dominated us in the first half. We limped into the lockerroom down by 27 at the half. The second half was much better from our point of view but the mountain was too great for us to climb. I think the closest we got to them was 7 in the second half.

The final score was 115-106.

This was Greg Vanderjagt's last game for the Blaze tonight. He will be dropped from the roster to make room for their new import signing, Justin Bowen.

This comes as a little surprising because Vanderjagt has been one of the best for the Blaze so far this season.

The question I have for you the readers, will some other team sign Vaderjagt for the rest of the season? He has season's averages of 10ppg and a team leading 6.5 rebounds/game.

This is just another example of how the rules the NBL has in place can really hurt a players livelihood.

Can Vander sign elsewhere? Or NBL rules prohibit him signing anywhere but Tigers?
