Cameroon national basketball team is a basketball team that represents Cameroon in international competitions. It is administered by the Fédération Camerounaise de Basketball.[1]

Once an only average team, Cameroon has turned into a major force and contender for the title of the African Basketball Championship. Their best achievement was reaching the Silver Medal in 2007. Since the late 2000s, the team has competed well against non-African competition, too.
