The British women approach their final round of EuroBasket qualifiers with an eye on the results of the other nine European qualifying groups.
GB know they need two wins in Manchester this week to have any chance of qualifying for this year’s final.
Even if they avenge their November 2021 loss to Estonia on Thursday, they still have to beat Portugal on Sunday, likely by a wide margin.
Both games are live on the BBC Red Button website and app, iPlayer and BBC Sport.
After reaching the last four of EuroBasket in 2019, GB failed to qualify in 2021.
Under the qualifying system, only results among the top three teams in the 10 groups count, with four of the second-placed teams reaching the 16-nation final.
With Greece likely to claim the guaranteed place as group winners, GB must finish second in the group with a better win-loss record and points difference than six of the other second-placed teams in Europe.
GB remained in contention in November when they came from behind to beat Portugal 76-69 in extra time.
“We were right to [Portugal] in the end so we know they’re going out on Sunday for revenge,” said GB captain Chantelle Handy, who is set to reach 140 caps against Portugal.
“But we have them at home and that’s a huge advantage for us with the crowd.”
Former WNBA forward Temi Fagbenle had 28 points in that game and added 18 in their loss to Greece three days later, a game that left the Greeks virtually crowned group winners.
“Temi is another level,” Handy said. “She is probably one of the best players in Europe right now.”
