A chance for Ethan Rusbatch to finally break out of Reuben Te Rangi's shadow.

The Canterbury Rams forward's solid NBL season has resulted in a Tall Blacks call up in lieu of the out of sorts Te Rangi.

Rusbatch is also a contender to fill Reuben Te Rangi's spot in the Breakers squad, as Te Rangi's signed with Brisbane for the next ANBL season.

Rusbatch hopes his team has finally come.

He says he's had his chances with the Breakers and hopefully he can add another chapter to his basketball career.

Rusbatch and Te Rangi will meet in the NBL's final four tonight, with Canterbury facing the Supercity Rangers and Wellington meeting Southland.
