The Bosnia and Herzegovina national basketball team represents Bosnia and Herzegovina in international basketball matches and competitions. It is organized by the Basketball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

History[edit]

Until 1992, Bosnia was a part of Yugoslavia, which means players born in Bosnia and Herzegovina played for the Yugoslavia national basketball team. Notable players born in Bosnia who played for Yugoslavia include Mirza Delibašić, Dražen Dalipagić, Predrag Danilović, Zoran Savić, Aleksandar Nikolić, and Borislav Stanković.

Ever since its' independence from Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina has regularly qualified for Eurobasket, Europe's biggest competition and major tournament. Their best result was finishing eighth in 1993, after making the quarterfinals. The only time Bosnia and Herzegovina didn't qualify for Eurobasket since independence was in 1995, 2007, and 2009.
