Perhaps the most talked about nation during the build-up for the FIBA World Cup qualifiers in February, Great Britain, have named their final roster for the upcoming games away to Israel and Greece.

Robert Gilchrist and Kyle Johnson come into the team as replacements for Ovie Soko and Justin Robinson, who have both had to withdraw from the camp.

New head coach Alberto Lorenzo, who has been thrown into the deep end following the shock departure of Tony Garbelotto after just two games at the helm will take his team into qualifiers against Israel at midday this Friday 23 February and then Greece in Heraklion at 4 pm this Sunday 25 February.

GB are currently 0-2 in Group H and are on the verge of elimination if they lose both games this week.
