Great Britain Under-18 3×3 Squad Selected for Europe Cup Qualifiers

British Basketball has announced the 3×3 men’s squad for the FIBA Under-18 Europe Cup qualifiers that are taking place this weekend in Hungary.

Derby’s Adria Amabilino-Perez, Robin Bedford from Barking Abbey, Kent Crusaders’ Jonathan Brown and basketballpaisley’s Callan Low have all been selected following a series of camps at the University of Worcester.

Worcester’s Director of Basketball, Dale Ryan, will head up the team who are seeded eleventh, and in a pool with Hungary and Switzerland, with both their opening games on Saturday August 5.

British Basketball Chief Executive, Lisa Wainwright, commented:

“We are delighted to be able to give our U18 players another opportunity to represent Great Britain on the European stage. It is an exciting time for the 3×3 discipline, with the International Olympic Committee recently confirming 3×3 Basketball as an Olympic sport for Tokyo 2020 and, hopefully, for future Olympiads. Playing for the GB U18 3×3 teams this summer could be the first step along a path that may end in Olympic participation for these players.”

Keep up to date with the squad on the official FIBA 3×3 event website.
