Injury-Hit GB U20s Suffer Third Straight Defeat

GB U20s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals of the Division A FIBA European Championships hang by a thread after being beaten 74-57 by a strong Serbia side in their penultimate second round encounter.

They faced an even tougher task with the absence of their starting front court, Ben Lawson and Kavell Bigby-Williams, and after a solid start, GB were outscored 17-7 in a costly second quarter.

Douglas Leichner’s side now face Spain on Wednesday in a must-win game to have any chance of making the Division A last eight at the first attempt.

Luke Nelson top scored for GB with 18 points while Grant Mackay was the only other player in double figures as he recorded a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds.

Box score.
