Gold Coast Rollers v Brisbane Capitals QBL Basketball Quarter Final, Carrara, Queensland, Australia

Hi all

Last weekend I saw a great QBL basketball game between the Gold Coast Rollers and the Brisbane Capitals. The Capitals ended up being one point winners in a nice contest. Here are some pics:

Adam Darragh was gallant in attempting a shot when the shot clock was expiring. Jarred Bairstow moved in 'for the kill':
