Great Britain men - EuroBasket 2021 pre-qualifying

Great Britain's men beat Austria 78-75 in their EuroBasket 2021 pre-qualifier in Schwechat - but fell short of the 14-point margin needed to win their group.

The result leaves GB with four games to play later this year to reach the qualifying phase, fixtures that will put added strain on the cash-strapped national programme.

Ultimately, GB paid the price for losing their opening pre-qualifying tie 82-96 against the same opposition.

Their chances improved with comfortable wins home and away against Cyprus but they could not win by a large enough margin in Austria to complete the turn around and secure automatic qualification.

The next stage of qualifying will see GB play four more games against other nations who failed to qualify via their groups.

Squad (caps as of start of qualifying): Dan Clark (Fuenlabrada, Spa - age 30, 100 caps), Rob Gilchrist (Lulea, Swe - 28, 8), Ashley Hamilton (London Royals - 30, 16), Myles Hesson (Gravelines, Fra - 28, 29), Kyle Johnson (Boulogne, Fra - 30, 72), Andrew Lawrence (Benacquista, Ita - 28, 62), Teddy Okereafor (Holargos, Gre - 26, 36), Gabe Olaseni (Wurzburg, Ger- 27, 29), Ovie Soko (Murcia, Spa - 28, 5), Josh Steel (Lleida, Spa - 22, 2), Conner Washington (Leicester, 26, 0), Carl Wheatle (Biella, Ita - 20, 11).

Great Britain Women - EuroBasket 2019

Great Britain's women made it through a tough qualifying campaign to win Group D and reach the EuroBasket 2019 finals.

They have been drawn with hosts Latvia, European champions Spain and Ukraine in their first-round group in Riga in June.

The top team qualifies automatically for the final phase in Belgrade, with the second and third-placed teams in each group playing off for a place in the last eight.

GB take on Latvia (27 June), Spain (28 June) and Ukraine (30 June), with any potential crossover tie coming on 1 July, also in Riga.

GB qualified for EuroBasket by coming from the third-seeded position in their group, toppling EuroBasket semi-finalists Greece to secure a place in the 2019 finals.
