Webster's defining win

BREAKERS game-buster Corey Webster found his shot last night in Changzhou, scoring 19 to halftime, en route to a game-high 23 points as NBL Select won the dead rubber 86-74 over China.

Having lost Game 1 in Qingdao 77-89 and Game 2 in Nantong 98-101, Game 3 was about salvaging something from the three-match series, now in its fourth year.

Still looking for a 2019-20 contract, power forward Majok Majok advanced his case with a 13-point, 13-rebound double-double in the absence of Josh Boone, out with a foot injury.

Adelaide's Daniel Johnson continued his good shooting form across the three games, with a further 12 points to lead NBL Select through the series with an average of 16.3 ppg.

The 36ers today formally announced Eric Griffin would replace Jacob Wiley in their 2019-20 NBL team after the latter signed with Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos, exercising his European out clause.

Of course, you already knew that ...

Griffin, 29 and 203cm, is an athletic forward who Adelaide coach Joey Wright described as a "Chris Williams type."

(Import Williams swept every major award while leading Sydney Kings to their first championship in 2003.)

“Eric is along the same lines as Jake; a very athletic player," Wright said of Griffin.

"He plays above the rim and he has a lot more experience than Jake in playing international ball, as well as playing in the NBA Summer League and some pre-season games as well."

Griffin has played professionally in Italy, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, the United Arab Emirates, Dominican Republic, Israel and Poland, as well as the NBA G-League and Summer League.

GOODBYE JAKE: Adelaide 36ers fans will be seeing Eric Griffin, not Jacob Wiley next season.
