Unlike previous years, the team will feature a number of players who have already featured in the Senior men’s squad, including starter Ogo Adegboye, as well as Andrew Lawrence, Kyle Johnson and Devon van Oostrum, who were all on last summer’s Eurobasket roster.
Of the 12 man squad, 7 have attended senior men’s training camp before.
Coach Mokeski commented:
“I am excited and honoured to be the head coach of the GB Futures team. This will be my third year with the GB program and the experience has been very rewarding.
“The Futures programme is very important in the development of young players and gets them ready for the transition into the senior squads. This year the Futures program is the beginning of our preparation for the Olympics in London this summer.”
The team will play a three game series against Lithuania’s Under-23 side at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford from June 7-9. The game on Saturday 9 June is open to the public and will tip off at 7pm while Thursday and Fridays games are closed to the public
