GB go into this first clash in the North East in a decade looking to bounce back from last week’s narrow defeat to Montenegro.

It is the second Group G game of the final round of FIBA EuroBasket 2021 Qualifying.

Newcastle resident Marc Steutel will lead GB out as acting head coach in the absence of Nate Reinking with the team ranked 21st in Europe and 41st in the world.
