The 2013 campaign has seen the emergence of a number of new faces, led by young duo Devon van Oostrum and Myles Hesson, who have earned their spurs on the Under-20 programme and GB Futures programme and who might now become cornerstones of the squad past the 2020 Olympic Games.
"The social media and the twitter support has been phenomenal. GB Basketball has galvanised at all levels and the national team is now important to a very large community. It reminds you how far and fast basketball has developed. The basketball legacy continues at many levels in the UK. I am proud to be involved," commented Warwick Cann, National Teams Director for British Basketball.
With British Basketball set to discuss a longer-term funding package with UK Sport later this year, Prunty believes the seeds have been sewn for a structure which can deliver future achievement on the sport's biggest stages, if it gets the right support.
"This is a team that all of Great Britain should be backing," he said. "It's not even a question.
"The character, the quality of people, not just the players, who have been fantastic, but the support staff. You can go up and down the list. Our training staff, our physio staff, our doctors, the coaching staff. It's an honour to have worked with my assistant coaches Guy Goodes, Nate Reinking and Kwame Graves.
"In my mind, I can honestly say I'm proud of what this team has done to represent their country."
The British squad left Slovenia after claiming victories over traditional powers Israel and Germany, narrowly missing a spot in the next phase. And they finished above a number of established forces, including 2012 Olympic bronze medallists Russia as well as Macedonia, who were semi-finalists at EuroBasket two years ago.
That has brought immense personal satisfaction, admits Prunty, who will now return to the United States to join up with the NBA's Brooklyn Nets.
"I've loved it," he said. "For me personally, I've loved how much we've grown. But it isn't about me and it never will be. It's about the Great Britain family. We said this from the beginning, when we got our Standard Life t-shirts, it was like kids in a candy store, they were excited.
"That's what it is all about. It's always bigger than any individual. We represented our country and I'm proud of what the guys did this week, and during the last two months."
Dan Clark said " We are still disappointed about not progressing to the second round for a best ever result. The team staff and the support from back home has been very motivating. It shows that we all care about British basketball towards 2020."
