LONG BEACH - Long Beach State forward Ella Clark was selected to the Great Britain Senior National Team which advanced to the second round of EuroBasket Women 2013 in France.
Great Britain was unable to move on to the quarterfinals as they went 1-2 in the second round. They fell to the Czech Republic (66-55) and Belarus (71-61) before ending the tournament on a high note with an 85-79 victory over Croatia. It was Great Britain's first-ever EuroBasket Women second-round win.
Great Britain started the tournament with a 2-1 record in Group C. They topped Serbia and Latvia before falling to host and 2012 Olympic silver medalist France, which took first in group play.
Clark, who was making her senior tournament debut with the national team, finished with 1.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 8.3 minutes per outing.
Clark was one of 12 individuals selected to the Great Britain National Team from a 20-player preliminary roster after a series of preparation games and five weeks in training camp. She has been a member of the junior national team since 2006, but this was her first time being named to the senior squad. Clark competed alongside eight players from Great Britain's 2012 Olympic team.
Five teams from Eurobasket Women 2013 will qualify for the 2014 FIBA World Championships.
