29 May 2012 / 22:05

Great Britain's women fell to another defeat but were much improved as they went down 77-74 to Croatia.

Having lost 81-59 to the same opponents on Monday night, Britain bounced back in style as they held an eight-point fourth-quarter lead before the hosts rallied to snatch it at the finish.

Azania Stewart led Britain with 14 points while Jo Leedham and teenager Temi Fagbenle had 13 each. Natalie Stafford added 12 with five rebounds and five assists.

Leedham took to Twitter after the game to say: "Tough loss...Great improvements..showed positive signs and we r ready to make more progress in Belgium #teamgb"

Britain now head to Belgium for a four-nation tournament that also includes Ukraine and Germany, starting with a meeting against Ukraine on Friday.
