Bay teens selected for NZ Junior Tall Blacks squad

Date: 30 Aug 2023

Bay teens Kahuranaki Treacher and Ezrah Eagle have both been named as members of the NZ Junior Tall Blacks squad.

“I’m just honoured to have the opportunity to represent the country,” Eagle said.

“It’s a pretty crazy feeling to be able to wear the black jersey on the international stage,” Treacher said.

“I’m really excited about it.”

Basketball New Zealand named its squad of 12 for the men’s under-17 team that will head over to Papua New Guinea in October this year to compete in the Oceania Cup.

It’s a big honour for both Eagle and Treacher, who first met in the Hawke’s Bay U-13B team, where they formed a solid friendship.
