The team will need to give it 100% with a group including the tournament hosts France, Serbia and Latvia.
The betting odds on success for Team GB are slim, with Bet365 giving the team the WORST odds of getting through any group.
But with much determination and a boom in British basketball over the last twelve months, this tournament gives GB basketball the chance to shine.
Here are the list of all the GB players:
11 of the 12 players are England national players with one from Scotland (Rose) and will be hoping to progress past the group stages which would be considered success.
Team GB have struggled in the last few tournaments including the Olympics and Eurobasket and will be hoping that success will be forthcoming.
Johannah Leedham will be a key player for GB with experience in multiple countries and a rookie contract to a WNBA team in the Connecticut Sun's, Johannah could be pivotal in the Guard/Forward role for a team which will hopefully be able to get a win or two in the tournament.
