Basketball: Rose Anderson hits Slovaks for six
They also reinforced their already strong claim for inclusion in the London 2012 Olympics. Anderson hit six straight points from the free-throw line as the Standard Life Team GB came from a ten-point first-quarter deficit to turn the tables on the team who beat them at the NIA, Birmingham, earlier this month and were favourites to top the group. Jo Leedham had a terrific game for GB scoring 26 points, including six from nine from three-point range. GB now face Germany in Liverpool on Thursday night with the men playing Bosnia afterwards as the second leg of a double-header.
GB men, meanwhile, slumped to a shock 75-56 defeat at the hands of Macedonia in the first of their return matches in their Eurobasket Qualifying groups.
A strangely subdued Luol Deng managed only three first-half points.
Former Falkirk Fury star Kieran Achara had his biggest court contribution of the series, scoring seven points and taking six rebounds.
