One win and one loss for Wildcats

DJ Cremasco inspired the Warwick Wildcats to a victory against the Ipswich Force in a Southern Basketball League game at WIRAC on Saturday.

Warwick trailed by up to 17 points in the last quarter but DJ lit up the attack with 13 points of his own.

"The defensive effort got us on a roll, particularly Snowy Quinn," coach Jeff Clark said.

"It was a good team effort."

Declan Starasts was the leading scorer for Warwick with 26, and the Cremasco brothers, DJ and Josh, each scored 15.

Warwick played leaders Maroochydore in its second game of the weekend late yesterday on the Sunshine Coast and lost 104-82

"The boys played out of their skins against a quality team," Clark said.

"The Maroochydore team has three players heading to America to play college basketball."

Starasts was the leading scorer for the second successive day.

This weekend, Warwick will host third-placed Redlands in a Sunday afternoon game at WIRAC.
