Jenaya Wade-Fray and her Standard Life Great Britain Women's teammates comfortably defeated Ukraine 83-74 in their second game of the Tournoi 4 Nations in Liege.
After Friday's loss to Germany, it was vital for Great Britain to hit back straight away with exactly eight weeks until the Olympic Games in London and they did just that with an exceptional team performance.
Scoring 19 points and grabbing four rebounds guard Natalie Stafford led Great Britain to victory, all 13 players registered valuable court time leaving Great Britain coach Tom Maher a happy man going into tomorrow's game against the hosts, Belgium.
"It was pleasing to get the win and to see lots of great performances from people deep into the squad," Maher said. "We've got to put it into context of what we have to do in the longer term, there is still a lot of improvements to be made but plenty of time to make them."
With a fast paced opening period, Great Britain took a 28-22 lead after the first ten minutes of play.
Ukraine hit back though and held Great Britain to just two points in the first five minutes of the second quarter, cutting the lead to just three points at 27-30.
However, Great Britain showed great determination when it mattered to maintain their lead for the majority of the period and they went into the half-time interval 34-31 ahead.
Despite having their lead cut to just a point at one stage in the third quarter, the Great Britain Women then pulled away to go into the fourth quarter 56-47 up and built up a 20-point lead at 76-56 mid-way through the final period to seal a comfortable win.
Jo Leedham, who scored 13 points, was pleased with the overall team play on both ends of the court.
"We had great energy today, great team defense, especially in the second quarter where we were able to lock it up and they only put up nine points so it was a great effort by everybody," she said.
Olena Zherzherunova led Ukraine's scoring with 17 points and eight rebounds.
