Stevens hits new heights

DESPITE losing by three points to PSM All Stars, Bundaberg Bulls coach Darryn Roche says he saw enough in the performance to give him confidence.

The Bulls went down 96-93 to in a pre-season nail-biter that went down to the final seconds.

The match attracted a large crowd at WIN stadium on Thursday evening to see the touring team of American college basketball players eager to impress for a professional contact in Australia.

Roche said the match also gave him an indication of how well some of his players had progressed in the off season, with guard Julian Stevens making an impression.

"He was on the squad last year and had a few good games," he said. "But he raised his game to a whole new level."

"Another player, Mike McDaniel came up from Brisbane to trial with us and played really well.

PSM All Stars manager Adam Prossin said his players were grateful for the warm reception from Bulls players and fans.
