Cameron Gliddon, a five-year Concordia basketball player and 2012 Concordia graduate, was recently voted the Cairns Taipans' Most Valuable Player.

Gliddon, who played at Concordia from 2008-2012, won an NAIA National Championship at Concordia in 2012 and was voted an NAIA All-American and Tournament MVP.  He plays professionally in Australia for the Cairns Taipans.

Second-year star Cameron Gliddon named the Taipans' Most Valuable Player at the club's annual Hollywood Nights awards dinner on Saturday.

At 24, Gliddon is the youngest player to win the award since rookie Nathan Jawai did in 2008 at the age of 21.

As at 14 March, with two games to play, he had increased his scoring output from 7.1 points per game to 11.7, while improving his shooting percentages to an impressive 50% field goal shooting and 34.7% from long range.

Gliddon's trophy cabinet is filling quickly, his MVP trophy sitting alongside last season's NBL Rookie of the Year and Taipans Defensive Player of the Year.
