England took control of the Spuerkees Cup in Luxembourg on Saturday with back-to-back victories over Scotland, by 78-49, and the hosts by 71-70 thanks to a last-minute tip-in by Julius Joseph.

The tournament is England's first of the build-up to the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne next March.

John Amaechi, the former NBA player, and Julius Joseph each scored 16 points against the Scots. Joseph, who played last season with Belgium's Colfontaine, provided the cutting edge against Luxembourg, scoring 26 points.
