The New Zealand basketball team stood right before the mid-court line and stomped and starred at their opponent in the USA men’s basketball team. The USA players were in shock at the moment while the New Zealand team performed their Haka Dance.
After the dance, the USA team clapped and continued with their warm-ups then focused on clobbering the New Zealand basketball team in a 98-71 victory.
U.S coach Mike Kryzewski said this:
“We actually were going to shake hands with them afterwards because we knew that that was a really neat thing to do and it’s part of their tradition, and we admire that,” Krzyzewski said.
