Great Britain, ranked 21st in Europe, head into the final round of FIBA EuroBasket 2021 Qualifying riding high on a seven-game FIBA winning streak, the best in programme history. The run stretches all the way back to December 3, 2018 when GB beat Cyprus in the second round of EuroBasket pre-qualifying.
Assistant coach Marc Steutel steps up to lead the team in the absence of Nate Reinking.
Montenegro qualified for the 2019 FIBA World Cup for the first time, becoming the smallest state by population and territory to reach the tournament.
They have played three times at EuroBasket (2011, 2013, 2017). As a country with less than a million inhabitants, Montenegro participated at the Games of the Small States of Europe winning the gold medal in 2015 and 2019. They are ranked 14th in Europe.
