The Breakers finished the first quarter 15 points behind and never looked like climbing back into the game that's become their first loss of the season.

Corey Webster lead with 21 points followed by Alex Pledger with 13, while star guard Cedric Jackson lead with nine rebounds.

With two wins from three matches this season, the Breakers now host the Cairns Taipans on Thursday.
