great to watch, my son was hoping it was his grandfather, and was surprised that his grandfathers team had not beaten Australia.

I was Manager of the 1978 team. This was the best team that coach Steve McKean had assembled and trained. Stan was fresh back from Santa Clara University, the fittest I have ever seen him. his brother John far from being in Stan's shadow rose to the occasion and played superbly. One of the highlights of my sporting career. I was shocked at some of the the actions of the Australian referee, but the NZ Ref Bruce McCormack tried to straighten the ledger. A fine bunch of New Zealand Basketballers. Our first ever win over Australia, and the first step on the path to International success.

Was there watching this historic win as a 14 year old kid, with basketball my life... what a game! Great to see old friends and opponents playing in this clip, brilliant!

Now we need some of the 2002 World Champs run from Indianapolis!
