- National Teams
Head coach Alan Keane has confirmed his Great Britain Under-18 Men’s roster for the FIBA European Championships Division B which start on Friday in Matosinhos, Portugal.
GB were drawn in Group A and will face North Macedonia, Austria, Iceland and Norway.
Ahead of their opening game against Iceland on Friday, Keane said: “Regardless how many European Championships one does, the feeling never waivers in terms of pride, privilege and gratitude to represent Great Britain on the international stage.
“What excites me most this time around is the quality of players, staff and people we have. This may be one of the hardest-working playing groups we have had and the depth of knowledge and experience I am surrounded with by the team staff can only be described as elite.”
Keane, who is supported by assistant coaches Mike Bernard and Ian MacLeod, added: “We look forward to getting started on Friday versus Iceland and are feeling very positive about the opportunity that is in front of us. Our ambition is to represent the nation with distinction and give each player experiences that will progress their careers in the best possible way.”
Keane has selected a 12-man roster which features an exciting range of domestic and US-based talent.
