    The Tall Blacks have kept their Olympic hopes alive with a 102-101 win over Turkey at the basketball World Cup

    The Tall Blacks have kept their Olympic hopes alive with a 102-101 win over Turkey at the basketball World Cup


    Six players scored over 10 points in the win, which was sealed by a hook shot from Isaac Fotu with 30 seconds left.

    New Zealand have booked a spot at one of next year's four Games qualifying tournaments as a result.

    Coach Paul Henare says it's a fantastic way to end their campaign.



    Argentina, Spain, Serbia, Poland, the USA, France, Australia and the Czech Republic have booked quarter-final spots.
