Brian is having a great season in New Zealand, leading his Southland Sharks team to an 11-3 record at this point, clinching a (surprising) playoff berth. It's a 16-game season, 4 teams make the playoffs. Conk is averaging over 20 ppg and almost 10 rpg.
In addition, he has just signed to play for the Townsville Crocodiles in the Australian League, so it sounds like he will remain in the Southern Hemisphere for awhile. Congrats, Brian !
