Warwick in two finals

TONIGHT sees Warwick White and the Warwick Wildcats head to Toowoomba for a last-ditch effort to make the Ag Requirements Regional Basketball League grand finals.

Wildcats coach Jeff Clark is really pumped for an A-grade win against the Highfields Young Guns. State league player James Legan should star for Warwick in his home town.

Warwick is hoping to be at full force tonight and is determined to bring home the win and meet the Tenterfield Bullets again in the grand final next week to prove they are the dominant team in the league.

The only injury concern in the Wildcats camp is Shannon Slater.

Clark said if Slater was out, the loss of a big man would make it tougher for his side.

The Wildcats were the leading team at the end of the fixture rounds but went down narrowly to Tenterfield in the first weekend of finals at WIRAC a fortnight ago.

"I believe we have what it takes, particularly after the high-scoring Highfields game against Toowoomba Protech earlier this week," Clark said.

In reserve grade, Warwick White has only lost to Warwick Green this season so is confident of taking out its second chance at a grand-final spot against Dalby tonight.

No team except Green has been able to come close to beating White this year and with all the players back from school commitments, White will be a force on court.

The strength of the Warwick Basketball Association in the reserve-grade competition in the regional league has been proved by the selection of All Stars players. Half the All Stars are from Warwick Green or White.

Warwick Basketball fans will be following both teams up to Toowoomba in a strong show of support for their favourites.

The last home game was touted as one of the best of the season for fans and players alike.
