Basketball Groups Game

After the previous day's defeat against Belgium, GB needed to make an early impact in front of a hostile crowd and they held a 16-10 lead late in the first quarter.

When they lost that advantage it was for good with Turkey establishing a 10-point advantage in the second quarter on the way to a 49-36 interval lead.

Great Britain's cause was not helped by being charged a second timeout by the officials in the third quarter - their offence being to take too long in the previous one.

That seemed to sting the team into action - they reduced the lead to single figures on a Ben Mockford three-pointer (50-59) and closed to within five points early in the final period.

With 4:44 remaining of the game, a Clark three-pointer made the score 75-68 and GB seemed ready for a final push.
