Perth Wildcats basketball team lose against the Townsville Crocs

THERE is no worse feeling than being unable to be on the court with your team mates trying to make a difference.

Sitting back here in Perth watching the 22-point away loss against Townsville was one of the hardest things I’ve had to endure.

Not only was it a disappointing performance by the guys, but I just wanted to be there to provide some feedback in the heat of the game.

After having a terrific 19-point win against Wollongong in NSW, we definitely took a step back against the Crocs in Queensland.

Credit to Townsville, they executed their game plan to absolute perfection. Their role players produced selfless games to give their shooters great looks and we didn’t respond well.

Offensively, we still haven’t got everyone connected yet; which is scary for the opposition, as we were able to put points on the board in both games despite not clicking.

One thing I know abut this group is that they respond extremely well in the face of adversity.

I have belief they will bounce back in the best way possible ” that is by competing and playing with the toughness the Wildcats represent.

Melbourne United are our next opponents and will provide a very stern test.

With Boomer representatives Daniel Kickert, Mark Worthington and David Barlow, as well as super athlete Lucas Walker, they provide plenty of experience.

Guards Stephen Dennis and NBA draft pick Jordan McRae will be another scintillating match-up for our back court.

In terms of my progress ” I’m tracking well, busting my tail and trying to get back on court as soon as possible.

Until then, stick with us and let’s get around the team for a big win.
