Coach K's GB Under-20s improve to 2-1 at European Championships

Andreas Kapoulas and the Great Britain Under-20s took a big step towards advancing to the quarter-finals of the European Championships, after beating Slovakia 67-53 on Sunday.

The team followed up their win over Russia to improve to 2-1 in Group B ahead of their final game against Azerbaijan.

Victory on Tuesday would almost certainly be enough to secure a top-two finish and make it to the last eight stage.

Akwasi Yeboah top scored again with 16 points, while Josh Steel was also in double figures with 13 points.

After a slow start at 0-6, GB began to get going with Carl Wheatle scoring their first points after almost four minutes. Yeboah and Steel both netted from downtown in a 13-2 run as GB started to hit their stride.

An 8-0 run across quarters saw Slovakia close to within two points at 19-17, but Steel knocked down two more triples to move to 13 first-half points before Kyle Carey’s huge throwdown from RJ Eytle-Rock’s threaded assist made it a 10-point game.

Danny Evans beat the buzzer to keep the double-digit advantage in tact as GB headed into the break up 33-23. There was no let up when play resumed with the gap continuing to grow throughout the third.

GB closed on a 6-2 run to take a commanding 52-33 lead into the final quarter. Despite a rallying start to the fourth from Slovakia, the damage had been done and GB were able to round out a resounding victory.

Box score.
