Andrew Lawrence GB vs Spain

Spain wasted no time putting to rest any questions about their slim victory over Great Britain in the previous game, dominating from start to finish in Game 2, to win 100-46 on Thursday night in Zaragoza.

GB finish their official preparation games with a 1-6 record, riding a six game losing streak into Eurobasket, which begins next week in Slovenia.

“At the end of the day we can’t just accept that we’re a young team,” head coach Joe Prunty said. “My assistant Nate Reinking had a great comment. He said ‘guys, Eurobasket is five games in six nights, you have to be ready to play every night.’

“Spain are the number-two ranked team in the world so I’m not surprised that they can get to that level and give them credit for being as good as they were.”

No player from GB reached double figures, with Andrew Lawrence leading the side with 9 points. Marc Gasol had 17 points in just 20 minutes to lead Spain.

Prunty is expected to announce the final 12 players he will be taking to Slovenia in the coming days.

Box score.
