Great Britain Futures overcame Lithuania Under-23s 74-62 on Friday night in Guildford with the two teams playing what was their second game behind closed doors.

Former Brixton Topcats big man Matthew Bryan-Amaning was outstanding for the GB Futures as he secured a double-double of 22 points and 11 rebounds to lead his team to a second victory in as many days with coach Paul Mokeski’s side putting in a hardworking shift against a young and competitive Lithuania line-up.

Kyle Johnson also contributed well with 15 points and five rebounds as he looks to impress GB senior men’s coach Chris Finch ahead of their pre-Olympic training camp in Houston next week.

It was Bryan-Amaning though who stole the show with his vintage performance and afterwards praised his team-mates for the way they executed on both ends of the floor.

He said: “It was a great win tonight, we came out tough, we executed a lot better and played defence a lot better than what we did last night.

“After the half, we restricted them which was key and it was good for most of the players to get good court time. We’ve got a lot of confidence heading to tomorrow’s game.”

Saturday’s game at Surrey Sports Park is open to the public, tip-off 7pm.
