Helena Graham has returned from Port Macquarie, Australia, with her Under-17 NZ South Rimu Girls teammates following an admirable campaign at the 13th Pacific Coast Slam Basketball Tour.
The 17-year-old’s side were victorious in an epic 62-53 semi final tussle with Western Reds to book themselves a final clash with New South Wales Kookaburras but were unable to bring the trophy back across the Tasman.
The New Zealanders eventually fell to a 67-35 defeat but Graham could take some solace in notching the most individual points in her team and honing her skills under the esteemed tutelage of Burt Tobia.
