Recent West Sydney Razorbacks recruit TROY DE VRIES has been rewarded for his sensational SEABL season with a position on the All SEABL South Men team in his first season. Joining de Vries in the backcourt is ANTHONY STEWART of the Hobart Chargers, and in the frontcourt is Kilsyth Cobras duo JON CROFT and CHRIS CAMERON, along with DANIEL GEORGE of the Hobart Chargers.
TROY DE VRIES led all players in the South team with 10 votes out of a possible 12, averaging 31.3 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game. This is de Vries first selection to the All SEABL South Men Team, in his first season of SEABL. De Vries dominated the scoring for the entire season, scoring 40+ points on five occasions and scoring a season high 48pts on two occasions.
Hobart Chargers DANIEL GEORGE earned his second consecutive selection to the All-SEABL South Men Team, after another consistent performance. Daniel averaged 17.50 points at 49.3% and 9.54 rebounds as well as recording 1.73 blocks per game in leading the Chargers to second place on the South Men ladder.
ANTHONY STEWART has had a magnificent season and joins team mate George with a position on the All SEABL team. Stewart has been a consistent scorer all season averaging 27.5ppg, 5.3rpg and led the league in assists with 6.79pg. Stewart played a vital part in getting the Chargers to second place on the ladder despite carrying a leg injury for the majority of the season.
Returning to the league after a season of retirement, Kilsyth Cobras JON CROFT has been rewarded for his brilliant all around style of game. Croft finished the 2005 season with a Championship with Bendigo, but decided to return to SEABL action with his junior association and helped lift the Cobras back into the playoffs, and hopefully win the Championship this weekend against his former team. Croft is a quiet achiever on the basketball court and averaged 16.4ppg, 6.8rpg and 1.76apg for the season.
After four years at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, CHRIS CAMERON returned to Australia and has had instant success, with selection to the All SEABL South Men team. Chris, a graduate of the AIS has been a brilliant recruit for the Kilsyth Cobras, playing a major role in getting the Cobras back into the playoffs. Cameron averaged 19.6ppg, 7.1rpg and 2.8apg and received Player of the Week recognition in round two.
