Team GB Women gather together in Manchester on the 11th of November, to commence their final preparations for the remaining two games in Group D of the EuroBasket Qualification window. These will take place over the next two weeks. Facing tough opposition against Greece on the 17th and Portugal on the 21st, GB Women can guarantee a place in next years finals by winning both games. The finals are being jointly hosted in Latvia and Serbia in June 2019.
Coach Buceta has brought together an experienced squad of 16 players in preparation for these final two important games. The current squad of players have produced a 3 : 1 win ratio to put them into joint top of the group with Greece.
Coach Buceta is eager to get going and excited about the prospect of getting the team through these two crucial games.
“It is a great place to be in at this stage of the qualification round. This group of players have worked hard together and gained vital experience, as this campaign has progressed. They have come through tough games to put themselves into this position.
We are looking forward to playing once again at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester, in front of our fantastic supporters. They were the vital sixth man in our win against Israel last year and I am looking forward to having them as part of our team once again, for the next two games.”
