  1. GB take control of group with Luxembourg win

    Great Britain posted a 71-54 victory over Luxembourg in Manchester last time out as they took a commanding lead in their pre-qualification group.

    22 points from Myles Hesson helped to see them over the line in Manchester but GB had trailed going into the final quarter, only to surge ahead with a string of scores as Luxembourg only made a single basket. You can watch the full game here.

    The victory was their second straight win after opening up their EuroBasket Pre-Qualifying campaign with a scrappy 71-63 win against Kosovo in Mitrovica.

  2. How does pre-qualifying work?

    Great Britain have already been through one group of pre-qualifying for the 2021 EuroBasket finals, but failed to make it to the main qualifying group despite a 78-75 win over Austria in their final match.

    As a result, GB will need to top another, three-team group which also involves Kosovo and Luxembourg. They’ll play both teams home and away, with the group winner going through to the next stage. All four fixtures take place in August.

    If GB make it, they’ll face one final qualifying group which includes 2021 host nation Germany, France and Montenegro – with the bottom team from that group being the only one who won’t qualify for the main event.

    GB’s new head coach Nate Reinking has announced a squad which includes their most-capped player, Eric Boateng alongside nine uncapped players – as well as Love Island star Ovie Soko, who has made seven appearances for the national side.
