Prunty names final 12 for Great Britain's Eurobasket campaign

Joe Prunty has named his final 12 who will represent Great Britain at EuroBasket and has stayed true to his policy of bringing talented young players into the senior team.

Jules Dang and Carl Wheatle reach the final stage after making the cut, while there is also room for Luke Nelson – all three make their debuts at a senior tournament as do Gabe Olaseni, Teddy Okereafor and Ben Mockford.

There are three changes from the 12 which saw them qualify from a group involving Hungary, Macedonia and Luxembourg last year and just six survivors from the squad from Britain's last EuroBasket appearance in 2013.

Performances in preparation games have been encouraging despite a 1-5 record, particularly in defeats to Israel and particularly an 84-88 loss to Greece in front of nearly 5,000 in London.
