QUEENSLAND CUP DAY 2

Crocs for the second night in a row came away with a win in the Queensland cup. !09-107 was the final in this up and down affair. The Crocs hung tough to overcome a twelve point fourth quarter deficit.

Michael Cedar fans will be happy as the youngster continued his good preseason form. Cedar ended up with 24 pts, including 5/7 from down town. Rosell Ellis had another double double with 17pts, 12rebs and 5 assists.

I thought I better help the cause tonight so I troubled the scorers for 32 points. Daniel Egan chipped in with 14 pts.

For the opposition, James Harvey dropped 27 on my head while the two imports, Crowe and Hawkins had 18 a piece.

The game was very open and free flowing but the Crocs showed good composure to come back from 12 point lead the Blaze enjoyed in the fourth. Cedar started the fight back with nailing back to back threes.

The Crocs played without Ben Pepper who is recovering from a fall he had in our first game. Big Ben should join us for Saturday’s game.

In the other game, a depleted Bullets took care of host team, Cairns. Without CJ Bruton, Sam MacKinnon, Ebe Eri and Justin Brown the Bullets won by about 15 points.

Rumour has it CJ didn’t play because he hair would not sit right, while MacKinnon was scared the Cattalini would drop 51 on him again.

The Bullets uniforms are something to see right now. Their canary yellow strip is quite bright to say the least. If you intend on checking them out this year, please bring your sunglasses for your own health.

Friday brings a rest day for the tournament, so when play resumes on Saturday the match ups are:
Bullets vs Blaze, Taipans vs Crocs.

LA has pulled out zero "Birdmans" at the cup. Supposedly his new release comes out 19th September. Will have to wait and see.
