    almost daily in the lead-up to the grand final series, keeping its main honor, 
    the most valuable player, to last. It didn't have to; everyone knew it would 
    be Andrew Gaze again. Yes, the NBL announced at its annual awards 
    dinner in Sydney last night that Australia's best player was the MVP for 
    the fifth season on end. And seven times in all, in 15 seasons. There will 
    be no argument as to the merit of the award, Gaze, 32, leading the league 
    in scoring (for the 11th time) with an average 31.8 points a game on 50 
    per cent shooting while  adding 6.6 assists and 4.6 rebounds But it was 
    the tightest finish in the league's 20-year history, Gaze scoring 129 votes 
    to beat Derek Rucker (126), Ben Melmeth (123) and Steve Woodberry 
    (121). All are members of the all-NBL team. Rucker was MVP in 1990. 
    This year he and another import guard, Woodberry, had standout seasons 
    as "go to" players, while Melmeth continued his rapid progress by winning 
    the most improved award and earning Boomer selection for the world
    championships in Athens next month. Robert Rose (1993) is the only player
     to halt Gaze's run since  his first award in '91.
