Scott trio hits the road together
By RACHAEL BORICH
CAIRNS and Townsville QABL men's basketball players could be forgiven for triple checking their vision this week.
Making their first road trip together for the Rockhampton Stadium Nightclub Rockets are three Scott brothers ? Paul, 28 (198cm), Greg, 25 (191cm), and Glenn, 19 (193cm).
Greg has played three games at Hegvold Stadium since returning from a knee injury. You could not find three team-mates who are happier to be playing together.
Greg is particularly pleased to be back on the court and preparing for his first road trip since 2001. His basketball was on track that year, preparing for a big role with the QABL's Mackay Meteors until he injured his knee in the last pre-season game and was sidelined until this year.
This injury followed a knee reconstruction two years earlier. Greg returned to Rockhampton from Melbourne about Christmas time and, when the Rockets needed some more players for training, he offered.
"Basketball was not on my mind at the time, but I was starting to think about playing again and Tweedy (Rockets coach Neal Tweedy) approached me to play again,'' he said.
QABL Sunstate Division men's points after Week 9 (wins-losses. % points) - 1. Southern Districts (8-1) 128.8%; 2. Cairns (6-2) 110.4%; 3. Gold Coast (7-3) 109.2%; 4. Rockhampton (5-3) 105.2%; 5. Townsville (6-4) 101.9%; 6. Brisbane (6-5) 104.4%; 7. South West Metro (4-7) 92.1%; 8. Mackay (1-10) 76.5%; 9. Northside (0-8) 85.5%.
