Tall Blacks Beat China 94-88 - Into Finals

New Zealand's basketball heroes the Tall Blacks came back from 24 points down to beat China in their final pool game at the World Championships in Indianapolis this morning by 94 points to 88.

The win, which came down to the wire, came after a spectacular 30 point fight back. At the end of the third quarter the Tall Blacks were still down 71 points to 63 and only went into the lead with five minutes to play.

The Tall Blacks have now made the top 8 in the competition and qualified for the finals.
