Great Britain’s Men’s team eased their way into the 2021 European Championships with a dominant 103-46 win over Israel.
Kyle Marsh, Gregg Warburton and Terry Bywater led the scoring with an impressive 52 points between them. Yet the strength of depth was on display with Lee Manning and Phil Pratt also picking up more than 10 points each. GB successfully pressured the Israeli defence, scooping 24 free throw opportunities and the fast paced attacks resulted in 21 points for the British side.
Despite Israel leading 18 – 15 after the first quarter as Amit Vigoda scored an impressive three pointer as the whistle blew, Terry Bywater’s entrance halfway through Q2 made an immediate impact, with the six-time Paralympian scoring 12 points for the Great Britain side in the second ten minutes. GB found their form and had an impressive 19-point lead at half time.
Ending the third quarter 74-40, GB continued to assert their control, utilising their speed and extending their advantage to 34 points.
Thanks to the sensational shooting from Kyle Marsh in the final quarter, GB continued to increase their lead finishing at 103-46 at the final whistle.
