Spain too good for GB

GB lost 84-63 to reigning world champions Spain in their opening game of the Marca Trophy in Seville.

The main plus was that Britain welcomed back Flinder Boyd, Robert Archibald and Drew Sullivan from injury as well as Andy Betts. Three of Britain's starting five ended the game in double figures - Nate Reinking (11), Nick George (11) and Mike Lenzly (10) - with Joel Freeland adding 11 rebounds but Chris Finch's men, ominously, were comfortably out-played by a side who will be among their first-round opponents at Eurobasket.

"As I told the guys after the game it's part of a process, it's not going to come together quickly," Finch said. "I'm pretty confident that in a couple of weeks this team will be a different team."
