- National Teams
British Basketball have revealed the final 12 Great Britain Under-20 Women to be competing at the Division B European Championships this summer.
With Head Coach Jeff Jones at the helm, the team have flown out to Romania to take on the best of Division B.
Seven of the roster were seen in the WBBL last season, with four representing BA London Lions – Zoe Willis, Flora Durgerian, Loren Christie and Megan Sheret. Oaklands Wolves’ Tia Freeman, Caledonia Pride’s Hannah Robb and Leicester Riders’ Sarah Round make the cut too.
Senior international Savannah Wilkinson – now at Florida State University in the United States – is also part of the 12, as is Southwark Pride product Ire Ozzy Momodu. Lancashire Spinners’ Shauna Harrison makes the jump from U18 to U20 while there are places for Anna Popovic – once of Charnwood College – and Imani Whittington.
Britain play the opening game of the tournament against Israel in Oradea on Saturday and face group games against hosts Romania as well as Lithuania, Ukraine and Greece.
Every competitive game involving Great Britain’s junior teams will be streamed live via British Basketball’s Facebook page and FIBA’s YouTube page.
