England recorded another historic win on Monday night, defeating Spain 75-66 in overtime in a Second Round matchup at the U18 European Championship in Latvia.

A jump shot from Tyrell Isaacs with seven seconds remaining in regulation sent the game into overtime before a team effort saw England secure victory in what is their first appearance at U18 European Championship.

In their first game in Latvia, England faded at the end but this was about to occur again on Monday as the influential Luke Nelson paced his side with expertise.

Nelson hit five-of-seven three-point attempts enroute to 29-points, five-rebounds, five-assists while small forward Morayoninuoluwa Soluade added six of 10 points in the extra period.

Ilimane Diop registered 20 points, 11 rebounds and three blocked shots for Spain.
