Tom Abercrombie comes up big to propel Tall Blacks to 10th straight Fiba victory - Feb 23, 2019

Thomas Abercrombie (198-F-87, college: Washington St.) was the star of the show as the Tall Blacks extended their Fiba World Cup qualifying win streak to 10 with a grind-out 69-67 victory over Lebanon in Beirut. The New Zealand small forward hit the all-important go-ahead bucket - a majestic 3-pointer from high on the arc - with 18 seconds remaining to give his team the lead for the final time in a thrilling finish. Then, just for good measure, he made a massive defensive play on home centre Ater Majok (208-C-87, college: Connecticut) with time all but up as the Lebanese scrambled in the dying seconds to send the contest into overtime. The Tall Blacks' victory, at a frenzied Nouhad Nawfal Sports Complex in Beirut, improved them to 10-1 through the qualifying process (the same record as Australia across in the other pool) and ensures them of a top-two seeding out of Asia for the World Cup in China later this year. Lebanon drop to 6-5 as they cling to the later of the seven spots out of the region. The New Zealanders will close out the qualifying process in Jordan early Monday (NZT) when they will look to extend that win streak to 11. They have not lost since dropping their very first game at home to Korea. Thomas Abercrombie shook off a flat end to his Breakers season with a standout display for the Tall Blacks, leading them with 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting, including 2 of 6 from 3-point range. None of his shots were bigger than that late triple off the down screen to ice the victory with the New Zealanders trailing 67-66. Finn Delany (198-F-95, college: SW Baptist), who is about to head to Serbia for his first offshore pro stint, also put in a top night's work for Paul Henare's side, pouring in 15 high-energy points in just 18 minutes off the bench. He made 7 of his 10 shots, and 1 of his 2 from deep, to go with a team-high 8 rebounds. None of the other Tall Blacks got much going offensively, though they did lock down excellently as a team on defence, forcing their hosts into a 31 percent shooting night (20/64 FG, 6/30 3PT). Corey Webster (188-G-88, college: Lambuth, agency: Alti Sport) and Robert Loe (211-F-91, college: St.Louis) combined to go 4 of 23 from the floor, though Loe and Mika Vukona (197-F-82) did grab 7 rebounds apiece. "We knew it was going to be tough, we knew we were going to have to play really well," said coach Henare afterwards. "We didn't shoot the ball particularly well, but we did enough to get across the line." Thomas Abercrombie said it had been important to keep their cool when the inevitable runs came from Lebanon over the second half. "They had a very vocal crowd behind them, but we did a good job holding our nerve. We knew we were going to get our chance down the stretch," he said. Both Henare and Thomas Abercrombie emphasised they were determined to close out qualifying play with a win in Jordan, despite Vukona, Te Rangi and Pledger all returning home to start Australian NBL playoff preparations. "Every time step on the floor we take a lot of pride in representing our country," said Henare. "One of our goals is to play for the highest possible seed to get a preferential draw in the World Cuo, so every win is important." Added Thomas Abercrombie: "We're going for that top seed and we're going to play our absolute hardest and try get a win. Jordan are going to be desperate and are going to throw everything at us." Big man Ali Haidar (201-F-90, college: Michigan Tech) led Lebanon with a double-double of 16 points (4/13 FG) and 11 rebounds, Wael Arakji (194-PG-94) chipped in with 13 points, Majok added 10 points and 9 boards and Ahmad Ibrahim got going in the final period to notch 10 points,. It wasn't always pretty through the first two quarters but the Tall Blacks did well to eventually quieten the big home crowd and carve out a 37-30 lead by the major break, after edging out to 16-13 at the end of the opening period. Neither team shot well through the half (the New Zealanders converted at a 39 percent clip and Lebanon 34), but, behind 8 points apiece from Thomas Abercrombie and the energetic Delany off the bench, Henare's men worked the lead to double-digits late in the second period before a late triple from Amir Saoud got the home side back within seven at the intermission. Delany was particularly impressive in the first two quarters, pouring in a point a minute off the bench as he knocked down 4 of 6 shots and added 3 rebounds. Thomas Abercrombie also got going in the second period to help offset some wayward shooting from Webster (1/5 FG) and Loe (2/11 FG). The New Zealanders' defence kept them in the ascendancy as they limited Lebanon to just two made triples (from 14 attempts) and won the points off turnovers 11-4 and fast-break points 9-2. The Lebanese, with their passionate crowd roaring, started the third quarter on an 8-2 run, assumed the lead at the mid-point as Haidar's shot started to drop and went into the final break with the scores locked at 52-52 courtesy of a 22-15 period. It stayed tight down the stretch, with Lebanon leading by a point with 4 minutes to play and by the same margin inside the final minute. Then Thomas Abercrombie stepped up and had the final say.
