01 June 2012 / 20:25

Great Britain's women have lost the opening game of their quadrangular tournament 68-54 to Germany in Brussels.

Jo Leedham led the scoring with 11 points for Tom Maher's side as they came up short to begin a key preparation tournament ahead of next month's Olympic Games.

Team GB will get an immediate chance to redeem themselves when they meet Ukraine on Saturday, before playing tournament hosts Belgium on Sunday.
