Bryan Burgess (captain) and Michael Archer were the key players for Eastern Basketball when they beat Otago 73-63 in 1986.
Burgess scored 18 points and Archer 16 points, with Tony Fletcher top scoring with 20. Coach Matt Ruscoe said Burgess was impressive and netted a remarkable hook shot from the sideline.
Eastern then went on to play Tairai and looked a different side. Ruscoe said it was a torrid affair and Tairai was obviously fired up and determined to reverse a loss to Eastern two weeks before.
Tairai dominated the game with its superior height and for Eastern, Ruscoe was the top scorer of 32 and Fletcher 18.
