Basketball: Team GB's Luol Deng believes Games will create lasting legacy
Tuesday 07 August 2012
Luol Deng is confident that Britain's basketball's legacy has been assured by the Games after Team GB beat China 80-50 yesterday.
NBA star Deng, who helped Britain record their first Games win for 64 years, said: “We showed everyone that we have potential. I think the game will be more popular here now and, to go out on a win, I’m extremely excited. We’re going to learn from our mistakes.”
After the game, coach Chris Finch announced that he will be stepping down after six years in the role. He said: “We achieved a lot of things. We’ve kept improving ourselves and that’s the most satisfying thing.”
