    Corey Maynard



    Corey Maynard joined fellow teammate Mitch Young from the Cairns Taipans to cross over to the Crocs for the 2015/16 season.

    Prior to 2015/16 season, Maynard spent four years at Bryant University.

    In his senior year at college, Maynard averaged 13.3 ppg, 4.3 apg, 4.9 rpg and 1.3 spg.  Prior to arriving at Bryant, the college had a record of 1-29.  Maynard helped Bryant reach a 18-14 record in his senior year which is a major turnaround in the Bryant Basketball Program.

    Maynard’s rookie season with the Cairns Taipans was limited as he was behind Cameron Gliddon and NBA-bound Scottie Wilbekin.  He only played 19 games after injuring his hand in the second half of the season.

    During the offseason, Maynard competed at his second University Games in Gwangju, South Korea for the Emerging Boomers national team.

    After joining the Crocs, Maynard became a spark plug off the bench to give a rest for club captain Mitch Norton.

    Maynard became a club favourite throughout the season because of his hustle, passion and never say die attitude!

    Maynard made a instant impact in the Crocs first victory against the Sydney as he hit the game winning three.

    He is also the brother of Collingwood Magpie Brayden Maynard.

    Mitch Norton

    Point Guard


    Locally born and bred, Mitch Norton has been a Croc in the making seemingly his whole life. Mitch began going to Crocs trainings to help out, keep score and rebound for players on the team since 2000.  Ian Stacker took him under his wing as an 8 year old and has kept in touch with Mitch through his junior career, AIS scholarship and his budding NBL career.

    Mitch has improved his stats in points and rebounding categories in each season in the NBL so far.  His NBL career was slow to start due to a foot injury, meaning he could only play 5 games in 2012.

    Norton led the league in FT percentage in 2014 with a staggering 88.5%.

    Mitch last season was given more minutes under Shawn Dennis with Norton continuing to prove every single game.

    During the 2015/16 season, Norton was given the starting point guard role after his development the previous season.

    Midway through the season, Norton was given club captaincy after the club parted way with Brian Conklin.

    Ironically, Norton’s first game as captain was his 100th game in the NBL against Melbourne United after Conklin was suspended.

    After the 2015/16 season concluded, Norton along with teammate Clint Steindl were named in an extended Australian Boomers squad for the 2016 Rio Olympics.

    Mitch has represented Australia in both U17 and U19 World Championships as well as at the World University Games in Russia, where he took silver with current team mate Clint Steindl.

    The Norton’s hold a unique tradition at the local Currajong State school, where father Paul, Mitch and younger brother Max have all been School Captains.

    Mitch played for local club Blackstars throughout his junior and A Grade career.

    Leon Henry

    In his first year with the Southland Sharks in 2013 he teamed up with former Crocodile, Brian Conklin, to bring the championship to Southland for the very first time and was named Final Four MVP along the way.

    Henry was brought into the New Zealand Breakers team to replace an injured Kirk Penney in 2010 for the first 3 games of the season and upon Penney’s return, he continued to train with the team, eventually being granted a full contract for the 2011/12 and 2012/13 seasons.  The Breakers were NBL Champions for both of those seasons.

    During his first season with the Crocs, he became a cult favourite with his toughness, determination and willing to fight for the ball.  This earned the praise of head coach Shawn Dennis who has re-signed the Kiwi for another season.

    His performance flowed on in the offseason for the Wellington Saints in the NZNBL as he was named in the New Zealand Tall Blacks squad.

    Leon played 1 year in Romania with CS Universitatea Mobitelco Cluj-Napoca for the 2008/09 season.  He also played at the Southern Idaho JC in America for 1 year.
