Great Britain coach Tom Maher has decided on the 12 players he will take on the country's maiden voyage in the EuroBasket Women.
The Brits, who are competing in Group B of the EuroBasket Women against Belarus, the Czech Republic and Israel, have the majority of the players that finished first in their Division A group one year ago.
"We have a good hardworking group," Maher said, "a mixture of experienced players with new up-and-coming talent.
"We have kept a core of the squad from last year which provides consistency and a platform for continued development."
Britain have one more warm-up game on Wednesday night at Slovakia before travelling to Bydgoszcz, Poland.
Great Britain squad: Rose Anderson, Kim Butler, Kate Butters, Stef Collins, Chantelle Handy, Jo Leedham, Ros Mason, Julie Page, Natalie Stafford, Azania Stewart, Lauren Thomas-Johnson and Rachel Vanderwall.
