Cyclones set to roar
By DARRYN NUFER ? THEIR 2005 record reads one from five, but new Rockhampton Hog's Breath Cafe Cyclones coach Kevin Bolck believes it will be a positive winloss ratio by the end of the season.
It was a big call yesterday from the 44-yearold, who is preparing for his first home game in charge of the Cavalier Corporation QABL Sunstate Division outfit tonight at Hegvold Stadium.
Bolck, who took over the reins from departing coach Mike McShane during last Saturday's win over South West Metro in Brisbane, is approaching tonight's week-six clash with the Brisbane Capitals and the remainder of the season with a great deal of confidence.
"We're a good chance of getting a win over Brisbane using the confidence from last Saturday night's win,'' he said. "I believe there's enough talent in this team to have a positive win-loss record by the end of the season.''
In the only change to the Cyclones line-up, point-guard Kasey Bulman comes into the team at the expense of Jordana Brady.
"Brisbane do put a bit of back-court pressure on us so hopefully Kasey will be able to bring the ball forward for us,'' Bolck said.
Bolck, last year's Rockhampton Basketball Association coach of the year, said the team had to boost its scoring percentage from around the high-20 mark to early-40 range to be a competition force.
Bolck will continue as deputy to Rockets coach Neal Tweedy, a position he has held for the past three years.
