6:19 pm on 12 January 2011

The New Zealand Breakers star Kirk Penney has been named the Australian basketball league's Player of the Month for December.

The shooting guard averaged 20.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists over the course of the Breakers' five games, shooting the ball at 45 percent from the field, including a scorching 51 percent from the perimeter.

Penney finished ahead of Melbourne Tigers' guard Corey 'Homicide' Williams and Perth's Shawn Redhage.

The top-of-the-table Breakers won four from five last month and face the Cairns Taipans in Auckland on Thursday night.
