GB Win Reaction

Following the clash between Team GB and Puerto Rico we spoke to Drew Sullivan and Ali Fraser, here is the reaction to the victory over Puerto Rico:

Andrew Sullivan, who is GB's most experienced player said: "My Role is not going to change, I have to try and work with some of the younger guys and get them ready for September, I will do everything I can to help make the transition for these guys as easy as possible."

"I think the togetherness of the team starts with the coach, he really stresses the idea of unity and I think that's what we showed today, when we had a defensive stop the guys came together and talked it over and high-fived and that's one of the biggest things I've noticed since we came together, a sense of togetherness led by the new coach."

"To have such great support today was really nice, I hope we will be going deep into the finals of Eurobasket."

Fraser who made his debut for Team GB said: "It was great to be a part of the team, it was a great experience, it is definitely my biggest game, looking at the guys on the team it was a huge game."

"It is a great experience to have these fans cheering for the team, I hope this is the start of something big, get some momentum from these warm-up games and hopefully surprise a few people."

"It's good to be around some of the more experienced guys, you learn something new in training from them."
