Great Britain’s Under-20 Men continue their Division A Fiba European Championship preparations this week, as they head to Italy for a practice tournament.
The five-day event comes after a brief training camp at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester, where coach Karl Brown put the squad through their paces.
With the tournament complete, the squad return to Manchester on July 7 for another series of practices before heading out to Tel Aviv, Israel to begin their Championship campaign.
In Tel Aviv, GB face France in their first Group A game July 14, before taking on Montenegro and then Turkey to conclude the group stage.
GB will no doubt look to improve on last year’s European Championship performances in Germany, where they went winless in the group stage before beating Greece and Ukraine to ultimately finish in 10th place.
The Fiba U20 Men’s Division A European Championships will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel takes place July 12-20.
