Pool, shown here with COB Director of Basketball and Under 16 Head Coach Rob Palmer, played against Spain, Slovakia and the Czech Republic gaining valuable experience at the highest level. The team returned with one win and 2 two defeats with the tournament provided valuable preparation for the European Championships.

Pool enjoyed the experience and now has the goal of being selected to represent his country in the summer.

Rob commented  “We are proud that George has progressed his game to a level where he has received National Team recognition. He has adapted his game during the season to become a versatile player inside and out, and worked hard to develop several parts of his game.”
