Hoopsfix understands Ipswich’s Josh Apple, Brennan Morris of Loomis Chaffee School and Reading’s Ali Sbai were the first three cuts from camp on Monday, whilst another two, Moses Byekwaso and Alex Roberts, were released today.

Thirteen of the remaining sixteen will be selected to depart tomorrow to face off against Portugal, Finland and Belarus in their first competitive action of the campaign since training camp opened on Saturday in Colchester.
