    USD MBB: Freshman Perrott-Hunt set to represent New Zealand in Greece

    VERMILLION, S.D. – South Dakota men’s basketball freshman Kruz Perrott-Hunt will play for the U19 New Zealand National Team at the upcoming FIBA World Championship in Greece. The tournament runs June 29-July 7. 

    Perrott-Hunt, who has appeared in a pair of games for New Zealand’s senior national team, helped New Zealand finish runner-up at the U18 FIBA Asian Championship in 2018. While at the tournament in Nonthaburi, Thailand, Perrott-Hunt averaged 13.7 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. His points and rebounds per game output ranked him inside the top 20 of the 16-team tournament last season. 

    The runner-up finish put New Zealand into the 2019 World Championship with the opening round contest against the United States on June 29. The American squad is coached by Kansas State head coach Bruce Weber. 

    Other opponents in Group A include Senegal and Lithuania. Complete coverage of the championship can be found online at

    Following the U19 World Championship, Perrott-Hunt will return to New Zealand where he is one of 25 players invited to a selection camp to earn a spot on the Tall Blacks’ 12-man roster for the upcoming World Cup.
