NBL player praises boys

KEVIN Globio might have been towered over by former Brisbane Bullets star Andre Moore but it didn't stop him giving his all for Warwick in the $2500 Warwick Basketball Challenge Tournament at WIRAC at the weekend.

Moore is originally from Chicago (USA) and played about 300 NBL games for the Bullets after moving to Australia in 1990.

“I played seven seasons for the Bullets and have seven children,” he said.

He travels home to Chicago once a year to see family but loves it in Australia.

“Smaller players like Kevin are a bit quicker to the ball,” Moore said.

“They have the fast twister fibres as we call it.”

After playing in the 68-41 Highfields victory against Warwick Wildcats yesterday, Moore said some of the Warwick players showed the ability to go further in the game.

“They all work hard and are promising,” Moore said.

“Some of the boys could go further.

“There are opportunities to play college basketball in America.”

Globio said it was fun to play against former NBL players like Moore.

“It is a new experience and a chance to learn new skills,” Globio said.
