Parents inspire Jackson to score triple double

THE New Zealand Breakers will hope import Cedric Jackson's American parents return for the NBL playoffs.

Their presence at the game against Melbourne United inspired him to produce a triple double in an 88-75 win that kept the Kiwis on top of the ladder.

Jackson's parents, who have not seen him play this season, will be in New Zealand for two games and coach Dean Vickerman joked before tip off he should honour their presence with a triple double in each game.

"That's one down, one to go," Vickerman said after the former league MVP finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds 11 assists.

"He had a little extra bounce in his step and he was excited to play in front of his parents again."

In yesterday's other game, the Adelaide 36ers pulled off a weekend double, beating Wollongong 83-78 after upsetting an injury-weakened Perth 106-102 on Friday.
