Tall Blacks need more game time: Vukona

6:45 pm on 5 July 2012

The Tall Blacks veteran Mika Vukona says they must play more international basketball if they're to reach their potential.

The New Zealanders' Olympic dream is over despite beating Angola 68-64 at the last-chance Olympic qualifying tournament in Venezeula on Thursday morning.

A bitterly disappointed Vukona - the stand-in captain for the campaign - says the only way for the Tall Blacks to get better is to play more often.
