Have your say

North Berwick’s Grant Mackay is the only Scot in the Great Britain under-20 men’s basketball training squad for the European Championship in Crete next month.

Former Edinburgh Kings junior Mackay returns to the team who won the silver medal in last year’s European Under-20 B Championship and won promotion to division A.

But first he must win his place in the final 12 who will play against Latvia on July 8 then face Hungary, Greece and Lithuania in a tough group.

Great Britain senior women, including sole Scot Erin McGerrachan, open their challenge in Eurobasket against Belgium at Worcester on Sunday.

GB also face Macedonia and Lithuania in their group with two teams to progress.
