Richards’ double-double powers Great Britain over Luxembourg


RRAfter losing back-to-back games in the European Under-20 Championships in Sarajevo, San Antonio Spurs draftee Ryan Richards and Great Britain kept their hopes alive as they demolished Luxembourg 85 to 56 on Saturday.

Richards once again led the Brits to the win reports

A 16-0 run in the second quarter sent Tim Lewis’ side 42-26 clear at half-time and, with Ryan Richards grabbing 20 points and 11 rebounds, their side coasted home.

With the Saturday’s win, the only way Great Britain can reach the next round is if they defeat Norway on Sunday. Since Great Britain was able to get such a huge lead on Luxembourg, their head coach was able to rest Richards and some of his teammates for Sunday’s matchup.
