GB CONFIRM EURO BUILD-UP

Great Britain’s men have now finalised their warm-up schedule ahead of EuroBasket 2017.

In addition to previously announced friendlies against Greece and Israel – plus a four-team tournament in Warsaw – Joe Prunty’s men will also now take on Romania and Ukraine during their visit to Petras in early August.

7th – 8th of August, Tournament (GB, Greece, Romania, & Ukraine) Petras, Greece.
13th August, GB vs Israel, Tel Aviv, Israel.
19th August, GB vs Greece, Copper Box Arena, London
24th– 26th August, Tournament (GB, Poland, Hungary and Israel) Warsaw, Poland.

“There will be some tough opponents, in particular Greece, having had such strong successes, particularly in past EuroBasket tournaments,” said GB forward Dan Clark of the build-up to the Euros in Istanbul.

“It’s well documented that our group will be difficult and it’s a tough tournament. The depth of teams in Europe is very strong, however the team and I are really looking forward to it. We’re prepared and we’ve been working with Joe (Prunty) for a while now and could bring up a few surprises.”

Meanwhile the BBL have announced the 2018 BBL Trophy final will be held on Sunday 4 March at Glasgow’s Emirates Arena. The game will not be co-staged with WBBL Trophy final as it was last season.
