GB have named their 24-man squad for the upcoming EuroBasket 2021 qualifiers against Montenegro and Germany.

Interim head coach Marc Steutel inherits a seven game FIBA winning streak, the best in programme history.

There is a first call-up for Leicester’s Jesse Chuku while Glasgow’s Ali Fraser and Dutch-based Devon van Oostrum are recalled for the first time in several years.

The roster also includes talented forward Sasha Killeya-Jones and guard Tarik Phillip who make returns..

Myles Hesson believes last season’s pre-qualifying success can be a spur.

“We have a strong core of guys playing at a high level, and I think we are all starting to realize our potential individually and collectively,” he said.

With a current world ranking of #41, Great Britain are the underdogs in Group G which includes #5 France, #18 Germany, and #26 Montenegro. Three teams from each qualifying group advance to FIBA EuroBasket 2021. However, as Germany are automatic qualifiers, only the top two teams in Group G are guaranteed to qualify.

National team veteran Ashley Hamilton is ready for the challenge, saying: “I can’t wait to get into camp. I’m excited to keep our win streak going and see what we can achieve with the step up in competition.”
