Basketball player dribbles into City

ONE of the tallest players in the Queensland Basketball League, 2.13m tall Steven Kluck will be in Warwick on Saturday.

Kluck will be in town for the Toowoomba Mountaineers' clash with the Warwick Wildcats in a pre-season game at WIRAC at 7pm.

While the Mountaineers play in the QBL, a Wildcats side has been admitted to the state development league for the first time.

The Mountaineers side will also include star Wildcats regional league player James Legan and the Dickerson brothers, Anthony and Charles.

Kluck is 2.13m tall - seven feet in the pre-metric days.

While Wildcats coach Jeff Clark concedes Toowoomba is likely to win the game on Saturday, he believes it will be a great opportunity for the local boys to play against a team of this calibre.

"We have only been training for a couple of weeks and are still working out our last few positions in our squad at the moment, but it's now or never to play these guys," Clark said.

The Wildcats side will include Declan Starasts, Mike McDaniel and Leon Perdue, who have all played in the QBL as well as Snowy Quinn, 2011 Wildcats captain.

Clark said, at this stage, three other top-level players would be trialling for a spot in the Wildcats during this game.

Trevor Donaldson from local business Warwick Solar Panels is sponsoring the game.
