In his first professional campaign after an impressive US college career, Clarke (pictured) has averaged 21.1 points per game this season (third in the league), helped by 51 three-pointers (also third best).

"Clarke causes troubles," Vickerman told the NBL's official website.

"His ability to finish in the lane over seven-footers, make flips with his left and right hands, is outstanding."

The Breakers (6-11) are in seventh place and will need to string some wins together to have a shot at defending their title. The Hawks (6-10) are sixth and also need to launch a win streak to make the play-offs.

Round 15 (home teams first): Tonight: Breakers v Hawks, Fri: Crocs v Taipans, Wildcats v Tigers; Sun: Kings v 36ers, Hawks v Tigers.
