Fans in for great night

WARWICK sporting fans have the chance to watch some of the best basketballers in the state when the semi finals of the Ag Requirements Regional Basketball League come to town tomorrow night.

WIRAC is the venue for both reserve-grade game at 5pm. The game on the championship court will be between the top-two teams, Warwick Green and Warwick White.

Green has won both fixture games between the two sides but White coach Darren Byrne is an inspirational leader who has plenty of experience in finals sports.

Former Warwick Basketball Association president Duncan McKenzie is in the Green side and will be one of the hurdles for Byrne and his team.

In A-grade at 7pm, Warwick Wildcats plays Tenterfield Bullets in the game on the championship court.

James Legan was a standout in the Queensland Basketball League this season and has plenty of top-league support from Damien Quinn and Warwick-based QBL player Declan Starasts.

While a lot of the Warwick scoring has been done by the QBL players this season, the form of the Warwick club players who step up at regional level has been a major factor in the Wildcats march to the minor premiership.

The young guns from Warwick include Dean Clark, Andrew Rendalls, D.J. Cremasco and Starasts.

After this weekend's semis at WIRAC, the next two weeks of the finals will be played in Toowoomba so tomorrow is the last chance for Warwick fans to watch their teams this season in a home-town environment.

The second game at 7pm will feature Warwick-based player Michael McDaniel who is in the Protech Toowoomba side which plays Highfields Young Guns.

The Highfields team will include QBL players Shane Davis and Stephen Kluck who at 2.1m is the tallest player in the regional league
