Sporting Category:
  • Basketball

A high point of his long career was leading New Zealand to a historic victory over Australia in 1978.

He played in New Zealand for several provincial and franchise teams, helping each to become national title contenders, and he also played successfully in the United States and England.

He was offered a chance to play in the American NBA, but opted for a club in England instead.

Hill later turned to coaching, including being assistant coach of the national team.

All Blacks, 1987


It was fitting, given that New Zealand was one of the countries that pushed hardest for the introduction of the World Cup, that the first cup was won by the All Blacks.
