CQUniversity Cairns Taipans v Adelaide 36ers - 2 February 2019
That fell a bit flat. The 36ers were always going to run hard right from the beginning, it's what they do. So at the end of the first quarter we're down 19-31, but by half time we'd clawed it back to being just two points down. Then lost the third quarter, won the fourth but not by enough to stop the 36ers. Great to see Fabijan put in his longest stint in a game, finishing with 11 points and 7 rebounds - pretty good for a development player! Maybe he can replace Alex Loughton, who announced his retirement after the game, effective at the end of the season. Depending on how you measure it, Alex is possibly the best Taipan ever although there will always be discussion about that. Whatever, it's a very short list he's on (two)! Enjoy the rest of the season, Loughzy, and all the best for the future.
