Fourteen-year-old Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye thrilled the large and vociferous crowd with his top point scoring performances. The results leave GB in a strong position to qualify for the semi-finals from the eight team round robin format.
Lautier-Ogunleye commented on today's victories: "It feels amazing (to win all three games), the venue here is great and we played some tough opposition but got the wins.
"The China team are tall but they couldn't stop us today and it was good to beat the home side, Australia too. We were down 17-9 at one point in the game but managed to pull it back. Our performances today send a great message that GB have come here to compete. We want to do the same tomorrow."
British Basketball Head of Performance, Warwick Cann added: "The GB men's team is playing very well and impressing a number of judges with their very good team work. All players played their role today and stood up when they were needed most."
For the women, their first day in the 3x3 competition saw them come up against a tough draw with Australia Green and Gold sides as well as New Zealand. Although the women are still seeking their first win at the AYOF they have shown good progress on their debut.
Warwick Cann commented: "After a poor first game, the girls ran Australia Green to a close result after an improved performance. The team is young and is starting to grow in confidence. They were better with each game today."
