OFF-SEASON PLAYER TRACKER: CRAIG’S DOUBLE-DOUBLE, DOUBLE & BRUCE’S TRIPLE-DOUBLE

It was a big weekend for Torrey Craig and a swift reversal of fortunes for the Gold Coast Rollers as they walked away with two good wins, evening their ledger at 2-2 through three rounds of the QBL season. On the back of a huge 42 point effort from Craig, including 4-6 from the 3 point line, the Rollers narrowly edged the Pirates to record their first win of the season. Backing up on Sunday against fellow Bullet Matt Kenyon and the Sunshine Coast Phoenix, Craig again lead the Rollers posting his second double-double for the weekend with 27 points and 10 rebounds to help secure a comfortable win.

Another stand out performance over the weekend came from Shaun Bruce, who’s consistent play has helped steer the Meteors to 3 straight wins so far. After solid games in the opening round of the QBL season, Round 3 saw Bruce have his best outing yet recording a spectacular triple-double which included a game high 13 rebounds and 12 assists to go with 22 points. While it’s still early days, with the Meteors currently sitting atop the QBL ladder, continued performances like this from Bruce will no doubt bolster the teams finals aspirations.
