Kapoulas names initial Great Britain under-20s squad

Andreas Kapoulas has named an initial 21-man Great Britain Under-20s squad ahead of training camp for the Division B European Championships.

Kapoulas, who enters his second year in charge of the Under-20s national team will open his European Championship campaign on Friday, July 14th in Romania. They have been drawn in group B alongside Netherlands, Slovak Republic, Russia and Azerbaijan.

"We're defiantly excited about the group of players that we have selected and we look forward to going to camp at the end of June” Kapoulas told gbbasketball.com.

"It's a short preparation leading to the European championship, so we need to maximise the time with our team and certainly having players returning from last summer will help this process.

"We have a lot of hard work ahead of us and we feel that we have the ingredients to have a successful summer campaign. It's important to focus on the process and make sure, together, we bond as a unit and get better.
