Gaze went on to become one of the greatest basketball players Australia has ever produced.

According to Wikipedia:

The former professional basketball player and coach played 22 seasons in the National Basketball League (NBL) with the Melbourne Tigers from 1984 to 2005, winning the league's MVP award seven times and winning the scoring title 14 times. He also guided the Tigers to two NBL championships, in 1993 and 1997, and was named an All-NBL First Team member for a record 15 consecutive years.
