Tai Wynyard’s Amazing Play Secured the Victory for New Zealand

An imposing figure in the post for New Zealand, Tai Wynyard can do much more than score inside.  He pulled out skills Kentucky fans have never seen to give the New Zealanders the lead for good against South Korea.

Leading by just one point with 1:21 remaining, Tai’s teammate missed a free throw.  He secured the offensive rebound, then proceeded to shake down the entire South Korean team before finishing at the rim.

We know the woodchopper is a beast in the post, but we’ve never seen him sauce an entire team with the spin move.  Of Wynyard’s game-high 22 points, 16 came in the 4th quarter. Unbelievable.

He’ll return to the court tomorrow morning at 9:30 ET to play France.

    I’m really hoping that Tai had extensive conversations with Willis about keeping your head down and earning your playing time. If he becomes a consistent aggresive rebounder as well as solid post defender, he will see the court this year.

    I’ve been a huge fan of the wood chopper since his early days on campus. I truly believe he could give us 10 to 12 solid minutes every game this year. The kid can play.
