Fantastic Win By Tall Blacks
National Leader Bill English has congratulated the Tall Blacks for their fantastic win over China in the World Basketball Championships.
"It was an amazing effort to come from 22 points behind in the first half to win by six. It shows the discipline and grit this team has to pull back so many points and finally take the lead when there were only a few minutes to go.
"I congratulate coach Tab Baldwin and his assistant Nenad Vucinic who are doing a great job coaching the team. I wish the team all the best for the quarter finals," Mr English said.
