British basketball: media day

The Great Britain men’s basketball team, hopefully including Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng, pictured above, will be the first British representation at a 2012 venue in the London Olympiad, when they open their EuroBasket home campaign against the Czech Republic on September 6 at The O2 Arena.

And qualification for next year’s EuroBasket finals should keep them on-track for London 2012, where despite being the host nation, they still need to earn a qualifying place.

Time: 12 prompt until 1pm – a chance to watch the squad train followed by interview and photo opportunities
