Canterbury Rams vs Wellington Saints NBL Basketball

Thursday 23 Mar 2017

The Rams will open up at home against the Wellington Saints on March 23rd at Cowles Stadium. The Rams and Saints rivalry is the most fierce in the NBL with both teams having won a combined 13 NBL Championships between them since the league began in 1982. The teams will be playing for the Huntley – Gordon Trophy (Clyde Huntley & Gilbert Gordon played for both the Rams & Saints). The matchup will also see Rams coach Mark Dickel & Saints coach Kevin Braswell pitted against each other. Both coaches are considered two of the best guards to ever play in New Zealand with Mark Dickel representing the Tall Blacks in the Olympics and leading New Zealand to the 4th place finish at the 2002 World Championships and Kevin Braswell being a star guard for the New Zealand Breakers.
