Marc Steutel confirms 12-man roster for Latvia battle
Great Britain Men’s National Team Head Coach Marc Steutel has named an unchanged 12-man roster for Monday night’s FIBA World Cup Qualifier against Latvia at Arena Riga (5:30pm).
Steutel has stuck with the 12-man roster that pushed sixth-in-the-world Serbia all the way on Friday night at Newcastle’s Vertu Motors Arena, ahead of another big challenge facing the Latvians, who have already secured their place at next summer’s World Cup.
Veteran centre Gabe Olaseni will captain the side once again and Devon van Oostrum’s inclusion will see him secure his 50th senior cap for the National Team, becoming the 14th player in Men’s team history to secure his half-century.
