Agbaji tallied 12 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocked shots over 16 minutes against New Zealand in a 114-94 exhibition victory Monday.

The guard also swatted a pair of shots and contributed as a rebounder and distributor. Agbaji's scoring total was his highest through four preseason matchups.
