In an exciting development for British Basketball, this Sunday's (26 May) fixture between the Standard Life GB women and Germany will be broadcast live from Surrey Sports Park to mark their 100th game.
The game forms part of the British Basketball Invitational Tournament 2013 presented by Standard Life which is the women's first test on home soil this year and fans from all over the country can watch all the action live on the GB Basketball website (www.gbbasketball.com
) and cheer on GB from the comfort of their own home.
Tip-off is scheduled for 5pm on Sunday and fans can tune in live where they will be joined by commentators, Dan Routledge who regularly contributes as Sky Sports' basketball expert, and the BBL's Coach of the Year 2013, Rob Paternostro who won the treble this year with his side the Leicester Riders, for all the action.
Standard Life GB Women's Head Coach, Damian Jennings commented on the live streaming: "It is fantastic that our home game against Germany on Sunday will be broadcast live via the GB website. It is the GB women's 100th game so to celebrate it in this way is something very special.
"The live stream will provide all our team, particularly the younger players, with a great platform to reach a wider audience. I hope as many basketball fans as possible will tune in for what promises to be an extremely competitive game to mark GB's 100th outing."
