THE Warwick Wildcats have missed out on the finals series of the QBL Development League for this year after going down to the undefeated Gold Coast Seahawks on Sunday.
The Wildcats were beaten by a better team on the day, going down 105-68.
The game could have been closer, but the Wildcats threw caution to the wind in the last quarter, trying to run down a 10-point lead, but it backfired with the Seahawks capitalising on missed shots to run away with a comfortable win.
Even though the Wildcats have missed the finals, they can keep their heads high after winning seven of the last 10 games.
They still have one more away game remaining against Southwest Pirates of Brisbane on Saturday.
Declan Starasts and Cameron Scutts top-scored for Warwick with 12 points each, with Mike McDaniel and Mike Matthews both scoring 11 each.
Coach Jeff Clark was also happy with the minutes played by his bench players, who came on at critical stages and performed well.
"I think that we have provided some quality basketball this year, and hopefully this support will continue through to next year, where we hope to go even better, and qualify for the finals," Clark said.
