The GB U20's rosters have been announced

British Performance Basketball today announced the Great Britain Under 20 rosters (both men’s and women’s) for the coming summer schedule.

Both rosters will be playing in the European Division B, with the men playing three games in Austria and the women playing four in Macedonia. The teams face a grueling schedule as they play three and four games respectively over a four day period.

GB Standard Life Men’s U20 Head Coach Tim Lewis said

“We know this is a very challenging schedule for the team, but we can’t wait to get started. We are obviously looking forward to the games, but it will be great to integrate all the boys, both new and old, when training camp starts in June.”

Performance Director, Chris Spice, added:

“It is great to see the standard of player selected for the respective rosters, it is an encouraging sign that the future of British Basketball can be found across top colleges and clubs throughout the world.

“We are delighted to have Tim Lewis back coaching the men’s and we believe the addition of Damian Jennings as women’s head coach is a great opportunity for the women’s team.”

Though I can’t really comment on the women’s too much as I haven’t seen enough of them play, the men’s roster is looking pretty strong in my opinion without any glaring omissions I can think of (let me know in the comments if you think of any). Further to that, it’s real good to see a number of the players on the roster are still based in the UK, perhaps a sign of things changing with regards to good players having to go abroad to develop.
