Orlan happy to make team better

After a weekend that saw him produce two fine individual performances, Leopards’ forward Orlan Jackman was more concerned with the wins that have helped the Big Cats climb up the Division One table.
Jackman was in scintillating form for Thomas Baker’s team in both games, finishing with a 37 point, 12 rebound double-double in 40 minutes, adding five assists and four steals in the 99-96 win at Liverpool before chalking up a 20 point, 20 rebound, 10 assist triple double the following day as Nottingham Hoods were beaten 127-95 at Oaklands
“I am just happy that I can help the team win” said the England international. “It was a great weekend for myself and my teammates. We had a slow start against Liverpool, but the fight and toughness shown by us in the second half was excellent and it turned the game on it’s head.
“It was an excellent feeling coming away from there with a win. Sunday was exceptional, right from the get go we took it to them, we shot with confidence, we moved the ball well and the guys responded positively to each other and it just felt like everything clicked.
“We will look to continue our current form into this weekend against Barking as we look to finish the season strong.”
