Great Britain Senior Women eased to an 83-45 win over Estonia in their FIBA Women’s EuroBasket 2025 qualifier in Tallinn on Sunday afternoon.
Temi Fagbenle was dominant, finishing with 32 points, nine rebounds, two assists, four steals and four blocks as GB shot 46% from the field and faced little resistance as they bounced back from their two point loss to Sweden.

Savannah Wilkinson had 17, as GB, who were without Holly Winterburn, saw all 11 players get on the scoreboard
“I’m proud of the way we bounced back from the first game, it was a great team effort,” said Fagbenle.
“It was a big team win, everybody contributed in some way whether or not they were on the court, and I am very happy that we were able to win by that margin as well, because these points are important in this campaign and it was nice to be on the court all having fun together.”
Keandra Koorits had nine points, and former Caledonia Gladiators player Tea Adams added seven for Estonia, who drop to 0-2.
“I am happy with the performance of the team because after losing against Sweden this game was very important,” said GB head coach Chema Buceta.
“Not only to win because that was the priority but also to get the best winning score possible. I think we played a lot as a team today with very good defence, I think defence was key, we created many problems for Estonia on offence, and many times we were able to go on the fast break and that gave us a lot of points.”
