Australian Boomers v New Zealand Tall Blacks FIBA Oceania Championship Basketball

Hi all

Recently I attended the FIBA Oceania Basketball Championship in Brisbane. The second game, featured here, was a men’s fixture (for direct Olympic qualification) between the Australian Boomers and the New Zealand Tall Blacks. I’ve already shared my favourite photos in my Myspace blog here, so here are some extra pics:
