OFF-SEASON PLAYER TRACKER: TUETA ROLLS ROLLERS

USC Rip City have kept rolling, their unblemished QBL record now at 5-0 after a solid win over the Gold Coast Rollers on Friday night. Isaih Tueta led all scorers with 26 points to go along with 10 assists as the Sunshine Coast outfit were able to keep the leagues leading scorer, Torrey Craig relatively quiet with 16 points on the night.

Young-gun Bullets duo Matt Kenyon and newly signed development player Tom Fullarton helped the Sunshine Coast Phoenix record their first victory of the season. It came at the expense of Mitch Young and the Logan Thunder, who despite Young’s 26 points came up short against a Phoenix team desperate for a win.

There were consistent performances across the board with Tom Jervis recording another double-double in the Spartans win over the Power. Shaun Bruce again was hot for Mackay, with a double-double of his own; 23 points and 13 rebounds in the win over Rockhampton.

Round six of the QBL also saw the debut of Bullets big man Daniel Kickert for the South West Metro Pirates. Stepping into the line-up for his first game proved beneficial for the Pirates, as they walked away with their first win, narrowly edging Toowoomba.
