Flyers Trio Suffer Second Straight Defeat At U20 European Championship.

Great Britain suffered a second straight defeat at the 2015 FIBA European Under-20 Championship on Wednesday with a 80-72 loss to Slovenia.

The team led by as many as 12 points during an impressive first half performance, but a 9-0 Slovenia run in the fourth ultimately cost them the game.

Flyers’ players Deane Williams and Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye put in solid performances once again off the bench, with Williams scoring nine of his 12 points in the first quarter, whilst Lautier-Ogunleye finished with nine.

“In the second half we got away from defending and sharing the ball,” Head Coach Douglas Leichner told gbbasketball.com.

“In the first half we had hit a lot of our benchmarks in terms of what we wanted to achieve, but then we got into some foul trouble. We allowed them to take a lot of free throws and we weren’t able to stop their penetration.”

GB U20s will continue to look for their first win at the U20 European Championship in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Italy when they face Germany in their third Group D encounter on Thursday. (13:15 BST)

The top three teams in each group progress to the Second Round, whilst the eight teams that don’t qualify will battle it out for Division A survival with seven teams relegated.
