U20 Men successful against Slovaks
The Standard Life GB U20 Men beat Slovak Republic 80-60 on Friday evening in Bristol in the first of two games between the nations.
GB led from the start in what was a polished performance with Ali Fraser and Jesse Chuku standing out.
Coach Dave Smart commented: "It was okay as it was our first game but it clearly highlights that to be successful this summer, we must always play hard and as a team. We must learn to compete for 40 minutes to really be a good team."
Great Britain edged the first quarter 20-15, and increased their advantage to 34-26 at the half after holding the Slovaks to just 11 points in quarter two.
GB were pegged back for stages of the third, but they fought back to lead 52-43 going into the fourth quarter. It was from there that GB stamped their authority on the game, racing to win the final ten minutes 28-17 and record an easy win.
The two teams meet again on Saturday night at 8pm.
