Giants sign Rory Fannon - Dec 14, 2012

Rory Fannon
Rory Fannon (206-C-87) has had enough of being basketball's best-kept secret.

The North Shore centre is the latest signing for the Nelson Giants and will be a 25-year-old rookie in the National Basketball League next season.

"I've been away for five years while my best friends, guys like Tom [Abercrombie] and Corey [Webster], were making their names," Fannon said. "I feel like it's time to try to catch up, to get to where they already are."

Fannon, a 2.06m centre, was a high school team-mate of both Abercrombie and Webster at Westlake Boys High, the national secondary schools champion in 2005. But, while the other pair flirted briefly with the US college system before returning to New Zealand to carve out careers with the Breakers and Tall Blacks, Fannon spent five seasons in Orem, Utah.

The big Kiwi was recruited by Utah Valley University, a Division 1 college with a roll of more than 33,000 students. He sat out his first year as he tried to fill out his frame and his game, then played four seasons with the Wolverines.

Tall Blacks finish third in Atlas Challenge after beating hosts China - 4 days ago

The Tall Blacks have finished third at the Atlas Challenge in China, after a fiercely fought and often controversial playoff match against the host nation on Sunday night, winning 90-84. Rebounding after what was by their own admission a disappointing semifinal performance, the Tall Blacks responded to the urging of their coach to "overcome adversity" and ground out a win, despite losing three players to five fouls and ending the game with a further three on the brink of fouling out.

Tall Blacks run ends in semifinals - 5 days ago

The Tall Blacks run at the Atlas Challenge in China has come to an end in the semifinals, beaten 80-65 by a fired up Lithuania team, leaving the New Zealanders to play in the third place playoff on the final day against either China or Iran. After marching through group play unbeaten and showing great hustle on defence and sharing the load offensively, tonight was a flat performance in which the Tall Blacks were always behind. The New Zealanders lost the rebound count (31-35) and shot poo...   [read more]

Tall Blacks crush China - 7 days ago

The Tall Blacks have made it three from three on their overseas tour, crushing hosts China 98-74 overnight. The visitors were in command the whole encounter in a promising all-around display, booking a semifinal spot at the Atlas International Basketball Challenge. Following victories over Belarus and Japan, the romp against the more favoured China was the most commanding of the lot, and will continue to boost the confidence within the camp. Aside from an early 7-5 lead, China barely thre...   [read more]
