Auckland Dream staged a remarkable comeback to win its first Women’s Basketball Championship (WBC) title last night, an occasion that was a dream in so many ways.
The game, between two outstanding teams, was the best women’s basketball game seen in New Zealand for many a year.
Harbour Breeze would have been worthy champions but they run down by the Dream in a classic finish.
It was a dream finale with the game going into overtime and the result in doubt until the final posession.
It was a dream contest to have shown live on SKY Sport.
It was a dream to have so many high quality athletes showcasing their ability – ten current or former Tall Ferns on show amongst the two finalists and many others amongst the other ten teams.
It was a dream encounter with every possesion a contest.
