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

    Prior to last season, Maynard spent four years at Bryant University with current training development player Claybrin McMath.

    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.

    He is also the brother of Collingwood Magpie Brayden Maynard.

    Now joining the Crocs, Maynard is looking forward to a bigger role.

    Luke Schenscher returns to the Crocs after spending three seasons with the Adelaide 36ers.  Schenscher previously played for the Crocs between 2011-2013.

    In his first stint with the club, Luke Schenscher had made a massive impact at the Townsville Crocodiles.  Schenscher was that good for the Crocs, he was named in the 20th Anniversary All-Star team back in 2012.

    Recruited from the Championship winning Perth Wildcats in 2010, Luke has an outstanding first year for the Crocs and picked up the Kevin Sugars Medal as the club’s MVP.

    The talented 7-footer started his NBL career in his hometown of Adelaide with the 36ers and has also spent time playing in the NBA. After a successful collegiate career with Georgia Tech, the South Australian product had brief stints with the Chicago Bulls and the Portland Trailblazers before eventually returning home to play in the NBL.

    Mitch Norton

    Point Guard

    #6

    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 each of the top 3 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.  Both Norton and Dennis will hope he continues to develop this season.

    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.Sponsored by Tony Ireland Townsville

    In his first season with the Crocs, Conklin was a monster on the post using his quickness and power to average 16 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game, eventually named in the All-NBL Second Team.

    Conklin married his long time partner Kristina in 2012.

    He attended North Eugene High School in Eugene, Oregon where he led his team to a 28-0 record in his junior season and susequently named the 2007 Player of the Year and a 25-4 record in his senior year where the team was ranked No 1. in the state.

    Leon Henry has been a very successful player during his young career in New Zealand playing for the New Zealand National Team, the Tall Blacks at the age of 24.  He has played in the NZNBL for 9 seasons winning 3 Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2013 as well as a CBL Championship in 2010 where he was CBL MVP.

    In his first year with the Southland Sharks in 2013 he teamed up with current Crocodile team mate, 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.

    Last season for 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 two seasons.

    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.Sponsored by QSolutions
