IN A team of six-foot giants, Cyclones pocket-rocket Alex Brady sticks out like a sore thumb, for good reasons.
The Frenchville Sports Club Cyclones guard was everywhere for her side last night, helping it to a 106-91 win over Townsville Flames.
It's not the baskets or assists she provides for her side but the spark, energy and speed, especially on the counter.
One moment in particular brought spectators at the Hegvold to their feet.
Late in the first half, Brady harassed her opponent like a bee, stealing the ball mid-court and finishing it off with a bank shot.
The near-veteran of 85 career QBL games said that was part of her role in the side.
"Our team is full of scorers, I don't really need to do that, but if I can bring some energy on defence and just keep composed on offence I am happy," Brady said.
"Our height is our strength and our depth on the bench, we can rotate if we have girls in foul trouble.
"We have girls coming off the bench who do a great job. Chloe Morrow came off and hit a three to begin with, that's just a sign of what we have."
For Brady, 13 in a row will mean nothing if it's wasted come finals time.
"I think for us, it's not so much 13 in a row, we just want to get better every game and stay on track to secure a home final," she said.
"That winning culture is the type of culture we are trying to create here, so, sure, we are definitely happy with 13 in a row but don't want to blow it.
"Townsville were tough, they are a quality side and were backing up from a game last night, we had to be ready for a hard game but I think we came out really well, one of our better games of the season."
