i hope someone (anyone!) broadcasts the qualifying tournament even if all i can find is a crap stream on the internet. i think i'm more excited about that than the olympics!

i've already got my ticket for GB vs Czech Republic in London

England finished w5 l5, & narrowly missed out on eurobasket 2001. Back then this was the squad

Neville Anthony Austin
Stephen John Barnes
Raymond Howard Carter
Silas Paul Cheung
Tony Dorsey F 2.01
Andy Derek Gardiner F 2.02
Steven Hansell G 1.88
Christopher Haslam C 2.02
Kojo Nana Kwadwo Mensah-Bonsu
4 Iain McKinney
5 Yorick Williams G 1.92
6 Fleeta Mantia Callender
7 Ronald Baker G 1.75
9 Delme Leon Jefferson Herriman F 1.98
11 Roger Huggins FC 2.00
12 Ian Stuart Whyte C 2.15
13 Stevenson Lee Bucknall
15 Andrew Betts C 2.23

Of the squad that is present now, Yorick Williams, Andy Betts, & Steven Hansell are the only players still in it. Betts is probably the only one who will be in the final 12/14 players. This squad was good but was poor financialy. We beat Slovenia, Czech republic (home & away), & give Croatia a right fright along the way during the early part of the decade. GB are no mugs, they can play ball! We wait to see what will happen over the next few months, but im sure they will give more than a good account of themselves

Stax it promises to be a brilliant campaign hopefully! I've heard nothing on the TV coverage front, but i'd love to see Channel 5 broadcast it (fingers crossed). Im going to all 3 home games, can't wait i think there expecting around 10000 at the o2 & also the Israel game should be close to a sell out due to the large number of Jews in the north west.

Well it was broadcast last year by Sky sports! Ok it wasn't live coverage, but it was coverage none the less. Im not saying it will be splashed on all the newspapers but im sure there will be even more coverage than last year. You are right in saying thought that alot of people play it but don't like to watch it. We will see though what pans out. Im looking for good performances & well attended games, then anything is possible!

yeah i've also heard talk about the 'magic barrier' of 10,000 being breached. exciting times!

channel 5 have covered the GB squad during halftimes of their NBA games this year. i will send them an email about the qualifying tournament, and encourage others to do so - at least they'll know the interest is there.

I'll email 5 too, the more the better! Like you say they do quite often mention them during the NBA games. You never know they might "pull the rabbit out of the hat" tonight & announce it! Anyway the more we email, then the more likely they will listen.

No i think his days as an international player were over at the back end of the 90's. i've been following the sport properly from about 96/97, then internationally from about 98, & never seen him play for England.

Just had an email back from 5 saying "they do not hold the rights to the eurobasket qualifiers". Does that mean a british tv company does??

No Uk channel will be interested,when are you going to understand that. I appreciate that like me you love this game,but we live in the wrong country.The amount of eurobaskets,world champs etc that i have seen via internet through Mediazone or streaming is ridiculous when every other european nation is showing them on their national tv.Even nations whose teams are not even qualified.
