Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

NEW Bul­lets US im­port Stephen Holt knows he must shoul­der a great load this NBL sea­son. And it is a re­spon­si­bil­ity he is rel­ish­ing.

The classy guard ar­rived in Bris­bane on Sat­ur­day and went through his med­i­cal assess­ment yes­ter­day ahead of Bul­lets pre­sea­son train­ing start­ing to­day

Holt was a star for Mel­bourne United in the 201516 NBL sea­son along­side Bul­lets sharp­shooter Daniel Kick­ert and has played in Spain and the Czech Repub­lic since leav­ing the glam­our club.

He was en­ticed back to the NBL af­ter speak­ing to Bul­lets head coach An­drej Le­ma­nis and Bris­bane power for­ward Mitch Young — a for­mer St Mary’s Col­lege team­mate.

Holt knows that be­ing an im­port in the NBL brings re­lent­less pres­sure and wel­comes the ex­pec­ta­tion.

“It is a big re­spon­si­bil­ity, day in, day out,” he said.

“You have to per­form at a high level con­sis­tently.”
