Heartache for GB Basketball
27 June 2011
Women's GB Basketball suffered heartache as they lost in the last few seconds to pre-tournament favourites Russia at the Eurobasket Finals.
GB Basketball who prepared for the finals with a training camp at Surrey Sports Park in May, were leading all the way until the last few seconds and were at one point 15 points clear. Unfortunately they were pegged back in the last five minutes where Russia outscored Team GB 17-2 to take victory.
The defeat means the end of the tournament for Team GB who will build on the progress of the Eurobasket finals and prepare for next year's Olympics.
