Great Britain women's head coach Peter Buckle has been reflecting to gbbasketball.com on a summer which not only saw him clinch a spot at EuroBasket Women 2015 with the senior team, but also pick up the reins of the under-20 women for the first time.
Great Britain's under-20 women produced their third victory of the European Championship, when they outscored Romania 75-45 in Sofia. A day's break from competition had clearly served GB well, with four players scoring 10 points or more including Harriet Ottewill-Soulsby's GB tournament-high 22 points in addition to eight rebounds.
