GB return to the court for the third and final game of FIBA OQT this afternoon as they face Spain in Belgrade, knowing a win is needed to book the team’s ticket to Tokyo 2020.
The opposition: SPAIN
Spain began their FIBA OQT campaign with an 83-46 win over Korea, before falling to China, 64-62, in their second game of the competition.
GB are familiar with the Spanish side having met twice in 2019. A warm up game in Fuenlabrada ahead of EuroBasket Women saw the Spaniards pick up a two-point victory. A few weeks later they recorded a 67-59 win in the group stages of the tournament, which they went on to win with a victory over France in the Final.
