Great Britain stay in the hunt for EuroBasket qualification with an 83-81 win on the buzzer against Germany in Podgorica. GB made four steals in the last two-and-a-half minutes, producing scores for Olaseni and Soko, and with the game tied with five seconds remaining, Nelson drove the key off an inbounds pass and laid the ball in high off the glass left-handed for the win. "At the end of the game it looks like I won the game for the team, but that was a team win from the first play of the game to the end," said Nelson.

The British showed a more profound interest in sports, and in greater variety, than any rival. This was chiefly due to the development of the railway network in the UK before other nations. Both men's and women's basketball leagues, the British Basketball League and Women's British Basketball League operate on a semi-professional basis in England and Scotland, as does the premier netball competition the Netball Superleague in England. In Northern Ireland, as in the rest of Ireland, gaelic games enjoy significant support from the nationalist community, although the players are strictly amateur.

The conclusion of the completely disappointing European Championship qualification is a showcase for the German basketball players on the hoped-for path to the Olympics.

Without more than a dozen top performers around NBA star Dennis Schröder, the second row after the unnecessary 81:83 defeat against the lower class Great Britain wants to recommend itself again for a squad place next summer.

“We were behind when we were twelve and it looked like we couldn't play. We fought our way back and I expect the same on Monday, »said national coach Henrik Rödl on the weekend before the game against Montenegro in Podgorica (8:00 pm / Magentasport). "For us it's about finding the guys who do well in these situations."

ATHENS (FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 European Qualifiers) - Greece have announced the 24-man list that it will select players from for next month's FIBA Basketball World Cup Qualifiers against Great Britain and Israel. Gearing up to face Great Britain in Leicester on November 24 and then Israel at home in Heraklion three days later, the Greeks have named the majority of the players that struggled at FIBA EuroBasket 2017 before finding their groove in a Round of 16 upset of Lithuania.

GREAT BRITAIN have appealed for more funding after beating the odds to qualify for EuroBasket 2017. Kieron Achara in action for Great Britain against Ukraine. Unlike LA Lakers forward Deng, who is Britain 's best and most successful player , former Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic guard Ben Gordon did suit up. But while the 33-year-old, who is currently without a team, had his moments in his first campaign for GB, he was disappointing against Luxembourg, scoring four points on 2/10 shooting, with five turnovers.

In the fourth defeat in a row, the selection of the German Basketball Association on Saturday fell short of expectations. Possibly also because it is no longer about anything in terms of sport, since Germany has already been selected as co-host for the 2022 European Championship, the necessary concentration and the last bite were missing in the decisive phase. It was the second bankruptcy against Great Britain within a year. "For us the game was worth less than it was for the British, you could tell from the energy," said Niels Giffey from Alba Berlin, who watched the game from the couch at Magentasport.

Not only the currently injured captain of the German champions will not be there again on Monday at the end of the European Championship qualification in the so-called corona bubble without spectators. The other professionals of the teams from the Euroleague as well as all NBA players will not be assigned to the international matches due to ongoing match operations. "Everyone knows that we are missing 15 of our 20 best players," said Rödl. "At the same time, it's a great opportunity for these guys to show themselves."

The big goal of the year is Olympia. In Split, Germany has to win a tournament with six teams from June 29th to July 4th in order to make it to the summer games in Tokyo.

The frustration that he is not allowed to appear at the side of his national team colleagues in the international match windows during the season was clearly evident in Giffey. "Of course it's annoying," said the 29-year-old about the ongoing dispute between the world association Fiba and the European premier class Euroleague. “It's a shame it's such a political thing that it hasn't been resolved for years. That's annoying. "
