Recruit ready to pounce

THIS Sunday is primary school's day at WIRAC, as the Warwick Wildcats basketball team aims for two wins in a row in D-League.

Primary school children will be admitted free on Sunday as Warwick plays fourth-placed Gold Coast Breakers at 3.30pm.

Last week saw a number of players lining up together for the first time, and Clark was happy with the teamwork which was formed in a victory against Northside Wizards.

"I still don't think that we will see the best from this team for another few weeks yet, but I'm hoping that we can play well enough to string together a few wins while we're working on it," Clark said.

"I was very happy with the performance of new recruit Mike Matthews, and think that once Snowy Quinn and Mike get used to each other, we will have one of the best guard combinations in the league."

Last Saturday saw a crowd of more than 300 fans witness the Wildcats first D-League win, and Clark is hoping for just as big a turnout on Sunday.

"I've spoken to many of the fans who came to last week's game, and pretty much everyone is excited about coming again," he said.

"This is probably the strongest team that Warwick has ever had in basketball and they will certainly provide great entertainment for the crowd.

"Mike Matthews has a reputation of doing some seriously huge dunks in games, I'm sure it won't be long until the Warwick crowd will witness some."

Players will also be available after the game for free photos with the fans. Hutchison Quarries is game sponsor, with tip off at 3.30pm. Halftime entertainment includes the hugely popular kids' lolly grab.
