Flyers Players Boost Great Britain’s Survival Hopes at European U20 Championship

Great Britain U20s began their fight for survival in U20 European Championship Division-A with a 68-64 classification Group G victory over Croatia on Monday.

Bristol Flyers’ forward Deane Williams continued his impressive form at the tournament, finishing with seven points off the bench, to go along with six rebounds. 

After Croatia rallied to edge ahead 51-49 with two minutes to play in the third quarter, GB were able to hold them scoreless for the remainder of the period, before a Williams triple was able to restore the British lead.

The team abolished a 14-point lead, but regained composure in the fourth to claim a four point win, their first at the U20 European Championship in Italy.
