London 2012: GB men's basketball team beaten by Belgium

Eric Boateng

Great Britain's men's basketball team lost a third warm-up game in a row as they suffered a 79-56 defeat by Belgium in their final pre-Olympics match.

Without NBA stars Luol Deng and Joel Freeland, GB got off to a bad start, trailing 21-15 after the first quarter.

Belgium stretched their advantage to 39-24 at half-time and never looked back as they cruised to victory.

GB have now lost to USA, Tunisia and Belgium heading into their London 2012 opener against Russia on Sunday.

Pops Mensah-Bonsu led the GB attack with 18 points and 10 rebounds while Eric Boateng hit 12 points and 15 rebounds.

However, GB were always behind in the game in Antwerp and despite a brave fight could not do anything to stop a thirdstraight loss.
