England close to semis
Saturday 27 May 1995
Steve Bucknall, forced into the unfamiliar role of playmaker, led England's scorers with 21 points and broke Georgia's resistance with a dunk to give England an 82-67 lead.
Neville Austin's vital offensive rebounds and blocked shots also stemmed Georgia's dogged assaults in the second half, led by the 7ft 1in Vladimir Stepania, who scored 17 points.
The first half had belonged to Spencer Dunkley, born in Wolverhampton, who arrived with the England team via a college career in Delaware and spells with club sides in Israel and last season in Moscow. Dunkley scored 15 of England's first 19 points, including two dunks.
