TimLewis targets semi spot as GB Under20 prove Pole apart

Great Britain U20 coach Tim Lewis believes his team have shown they have what it will take to reach the semi-finals of the European Championship Division B.

The Brits swept into the second group stage with a 73-52 demolition, and now face Norway, Poland and Slovak Republic for a chance to go further.

"We've watched Poland and Slovakia, and have played Finland in the warm-ups, so we know what to expect," Lewis said.

"Poland are a really tough team, while both Slovakia and Norway can beat anyone on a good night.
There's no easy games at this stage by an means, but we produced a great performance on Sunday, so we'll look to repeat that.

"They're all fit, tiredness is creeping in a bit, but everyone is ready to go, and looking forward to it."

Ovie Soko has been the star man for GB so far, averaging 17.7 points per game, while Andrew Lawrence has added 13.7 ppg and Will Neighbour has 13 ppg and 7.7 rebounds per game.
