Otago Polytechnic congratulates the Otago Nuggets, who are National Basketball League champions for the second time in three years.

The Nuggets beat home team Auckland Tuatara in Auckland in the final on Saturday, 13 August, to complete a dream season.

We are proud to be a sponsor of the Nuggets, a partnership that has seen a range of Polytechnic students involved as interns this season.

Behind every good team there is often another team – a crew of people who, although largely unseen, provide invaluable support, energy and insights.

In the case of the Nuggets franchise, no fewer than 15 Otago Polytechnic students have been involved in helping them navigate their 2022 season.
