So far so good for Wellington basketball prodigy Steve Adams as he continues to take the US college scene by storm.

Adams' University of Pittsburgh yesterday breezed to its second win in as many games of the new NCAA season, crushing Fordham 86-51 in a non-conference matchup.

The 2.13m Kiwi freshman, who is already well and truly on the radar of NBA scouts, finished with 13 points (5/5 FG), five rebounds (all at the offensive end), two steals and a block in just 19 minutes.

Adams had eight points and eight boards in the season opener and continues to impress observers with his athleticism and defensive presence.

He has a potential four years with the Panthers, coached by former Kiwi NBL star Jamie Dixon, but could go in the draft after one if he's judged ready for the big league.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
