GB basketball 'future in doubt'

The future of Great Britain's basketball teams is in doubt after the sport had its Olympic funding withdrawn, says performance chairman Roger Moreland.

In an interview with the BBC's Chris Mitchell, Moreland says British Basketball is in the red and will struggle beyond 2014, while forward Kieron Achara says players have been sleeping in dorms and taking budget airline flights to games in Europe as a result of the cutbacks.

Following last week's defeat by Bosnia, Great Britain must beat Iceland at the Copper Box to stand any chance of reaching EuroBasket 2015.
