Several members of the New Zealand Breakers team have been nominated for ANBL's season ending awards.

Dillon Boucher, playing in his final season for the club, and US import Will Hudson are up for the Sixth Man award while Cedric Jackson and Mika Vukona are among the five nominees for Defensive Player of the Year.

Andrej Lemanis has been nominated for Coach of the Year, an award he won last year after being snubbed in 2011.

The Most Valuable Player award will be announced on the night with several Breakers considered as contenders for the Andrew Gaze Trophy.

Jackson is the best chance to become the second Breakers player to win the award, after Kirk Penney in 2009, having twice been named player on the month while helping lead the Breakers to a 24-3 record.

The awards ceremony will be held in Melbourne on Sunday, March 24.
