Mike McGregor debuts for Scotland in friendly against Newcastle Eagles

Glasgow Rocks guard Mike McGregor has been handed his first Scotland call-up for Saturday’s friendly with BBL champions Newcastle Eagles at the Benfield Centre (6pm).

The Kelvin Hall reserve joins team-mate Gareth Murray in the squad for the tie which is one of the Scots final warm-ups for this summer’s European Championships.

Tom Campbell’s side also includes Great Britain cap Steve Leven, who left Newcastle two years ago after an acrimonious bust-up with coach Fabulous Flournoy during the BBL play-offs.

The Eagles will field most of their domestic contingent, including Darius Defoe, with Flournoy set to give a trial to a number of potential summer recruits, including Birmingham-born guard Lamar Morrison.

Scotland squad: Gareth Murray, Mike McGregor (Glasgow Rocks), Gareth Lodge, Simon Flockhart, Laurie Costello, Paddy Campbell (Edinburgh Kings), Grant Gibson (East Lothian Peregrines), Ross Campbell, Daniel Donnelly (Troon Tornadoes), Steve Leven, Ike Attah (Teesside Mohawks), Tom Pearson (Manchester Magic)
