All three of Great Britain's opponents are using the event to make some final adjustments before the start of their bid to reach the Olympics via the qualifying tournament which takes place in the Turkish capital later this month, providing GB with just the kind of fierce competition they require ahead of the summer.
Cheshire-born GB player, Jo Leedham commented on the tournament ahead: "This is brilliant preparation for us. What's great about this tournament is that we have three teams we've never played before.
"They'll have a different style and that's something we need to see. We want to find out how we compete against different teams which is important for us."
Leedham has been in impressive early form this summer for GB, fresh off a season with Australian WNBL club, the Bulleen Boomers. Tom Maher was her coach there, providing constant guidance and support to a player who will have a key role in London.
"I have a good relationship with Tom," Leedham confirmed. "He keeps me honest and tells me if I'm being lazy or whatever. That's good to have. Playing a year in Australia gave me the chance to play in a physical league at a high level. That's been good preparation for me to get healthy."
Last weekend, GB split two internationals against Canada in Edinburgh to maintain a positive start to their steady lead-in towards the Olympics.
Turkey, runners-up in last summer's EuroBasket Women finals, will be tough foes in their own backyard. So will Argentina and Korea, who each took silver at their respective continental FIBA championships in 2011.
"It's a fantastic line-up," said Maher. "We'd like to see a build from our performances in Edinburgh here."
