Nenad Vucinic's young Tall Blacks team got a tough introduction to international basketball, falling 79-67 to China in Yinchuan, northern China.

The New Zealanders - ranked 20th in the world and featuring five rookies - lead the 11th-ranked Chinese 54-48 in the third quarter before falling away and being outscored 31-13 the rest of the way.

From trailing by six, China went on a 17-1 run straddling the third and fourth quarters to extend their lead to double-digits. They stretched their lead to 16 in the fourth quarter before the Tall Blacks stopped the rot.
