He said: “I am looking forward to the game against Sweden in Manchester. It’s great to start with a home game and I hope fans of British basketball will fill the stadium to give the senior women’s team the best possible support as we begin our qualification campaign for the FIBA Women’s Eurobasket 2025 tournament.”
