American import departs Cyclones
THE ROCKHAMPTON Hog's Breath Cafe Cyclones women's team will play the remainder of the 2005 season without US import Khalila O'Reilly-Williams who is now back home.
QABL officials yesterday afternoon had still not viewed a tape from the Cyclones and Spartans firery clash from last weekend, where O'Reilly-Williams was expected to come under scrutiny for allegedly kicking an opponent, but it will have no bearing on her QABL playing commitments with O'Reilly-Williams having returned to the US on Wednesday.
Rockhampton Basketball's QABL program and O'Reilly-Williams came to a mutual agreement quickly during the week that the Rockhampton association would agree to release her to return home primarily to prepare for her medical studies at university ? considering the women's team are unable to make this year's play-offs.
Steve Richards, Rockhampton's QABL delegate, said O'Reilly-Williams had filled the role of their "go to'' player in their development team this season resulting in her being the QABL leading rebounder as well as the third top points scorer ? she was also the Cyclones leading scorer.
