The Taranaki Mountain Airs got their national basketball league campaign back on track with a winning home and away double at the weekend.
The Good Home Mountain Airs continued Hawke's Bay's poor start to the season on Saturday before backing up away against competition new boys Super City Rangers yesterday afternoon.
Another game, another frustrating loss.
The Taranaki Mountain Airs came within a whisker of the Southland Sharks in the fourth quarter, before running into foul trouble and crashing to a 101-93 loss in a National Basketball League match at the TSB Stadium in New Plymouth on Saturday night.
The Good Home Taranaki Mountain Airs high flying forward Kenny Gabriel is the Bartercard NBL Round Three Player of the Week, as he led his side to two big wins, putting the Airs season back on track.
As he sat in the crowd as a teenager cheering on his beloved BP Bears, Scott Taylor fell in love with the game of basketball.
