Tom Abercrombie, Jordan Ngatai shine as Tall Blacks dominate Jordan in Christchurch - Nov 29, 2018

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Jordan were dealt bad news before tipoff and it didn't get any better as the Tall Blacks all but guaranteed their berth at next year's Fiba World Cup. Playing their first basketball international in Christchurch in 14 years, New Zealand thumped Arab nation Jordan 95-69 at Horncastle Arena on Thursday night to move closer to booking their World Cup ticket. The Tall Blacks can clinch their spot with a win over Syria in their next Asian zone qualifier in Wellington on Sunday. They have two remaining qualifiers after that - away to Lebanon and Jordan in February, but would head to the Middle East knowing their qualification for the World Cup is secure. American-born point guard Justin Dentmon (183-PG-85, college: Washington), who was set to debut for Jordan, was scratched pre-game after being deemed ineligible. Losing Dentmon, who sat courtside in his street clothes, was a blow for the Jordanians, who trailed 51-30 at halftime and were always playing catch-up after falling behind early. The well-travelled Dentmon, who played eight games in the NBA between 2011-13, and has featured in the EuroLeague, was set to provide added firepower and veteran experience in Jordan's backcourt. Jordan are understood to be working hard behind the scenes to ensure he satisfies Fiba criteria for future qualifiers. Despite missing the star power of the Webster brothers, Corey and Tai, Isaac Fotu, and Finn Delany, the Tall Blacks were always expected to be far too strong for Jordan at home. New Zealand ran out easy 98-70 victors with a weakened squad when the sides last met in the Fiba Asia Cup in Lebanon last year, and were again in full control. More pleasing for Tall Blacks coach Paul Henare will be the fact this is their eighth straight Asian zone World Cup qualifying win after beginning with a hiccup against South Korea in their first game in Wellington last November. Far tougher tests lie ahead at the World Cup in China next August-September, but the Tall Blacks are building depth, winning games and exposing young talent to the international arena. New Zealand were sluggish to start the game, missing four of their first five attempts, but it wasn't long before they cranked into gear. Thomas Abercrombie (198-F-87, college: Washington St.) was lively early, finishing off a well-timed pass from Reuben Te Rangi (198-F/G-94) to score at the rim. He then showed plenty of hustle at the other end of the court, chasing down Jordan big man Zaid Abbas and blocking his attempted dunk. Thomas Abercrombie then drilled a three to give the Tall Blacks a 17-3 lead. Canterbury's Ethan Rusbatch (196-G/F-92, college: Lincoln Trail CC) received one of the loudest cheers of the night when he checked into the game in front of his hometown crowd with three minutes left in the first period. By the end of the opening quarter, the Tall Blacks had shot out to a 29-17 lead on red-hot 71 per cent shooting (12-of-17) from the field, while limiting Jordan to just 6-of-14 (42 per cent). Henare was able to get Auckland schoolboy Kruz Perrott-Hunt (190-F-00) and Tom Vodanovich out on court for their Tall Black debuts in the second quarter, but Jordan fought valiantly and refused to give up easy buckets inside. Southland Shark Vodanovich made an immediate impact helping himself to five quick points and looked more than comfortable in his first steps in international basketball. Vodanovich finished with 11 points in his 16 minutes of court-time in an encouraging first-up showing in the black singlet. Thomas Abercrombie took over in the third quarter, dropping 13 of his game-high 18 points as the Tall Blacks' lead blew out to 73-46 to close out the term.
