Great Britain Senior Men advanced to the EuroBasket 2021 Qualifiers with a dominant 101-79 victory over Kosovo on Saturday evening at the NBPC in Manchester.
Nate Reinking’s side improved to 3-0 ahead of a trip to Luxembourg where the result will make little difference, as they move onto face France, Germany and Montenegro in the Qualifiers.
With the victory, it is GB’s first 6-game winning streak in FIBA competitions since 2007 when they were in division B.

GB faced little resistance, jumping out to 22-4 lead and never looking back, as Kosovo were unable to get into the game.
