NICK Quinn is one of the tall players in the Subway Warwick Wildcats side.

But he won't be overawed standing at close range to All Stars player Declan Starasts in the 5pm trial game at WIRAC tomorrow.

All money raised on the night will add to the $11,000 already raised by CJ Meiklejohn for Camp Quality since she returned home from hospital in the past month.

"I like the three-pointers," CJ said.

Quinn and Starasts were team-mates in the Wildcats team which finished sixth in their first season of D-League.

Starasts has played Queensland Basketball League for the Ipswich Force, one level above D-League, but will line up in the Ag Requirements Regional Basketball League All Stars team against the Wildcats tomorrow.

Quinn said he was only a couple of centimetres shorter than Starasts.

"We are the same age and have played a lot of club basketball in Warwick," Quinn said.

"Our team must let Declan do low percentage jump shots and keep him away from the keyway."

Coach Jeff Clark will lose his hair on the night if $500 can be raised to make him bald.
