Lithuanian men competed in two of the pre-war EuroBasket competitions for the European championship. They won both the EuroBasket 1937 and EuroBasket 1939 competitions. The 1939 team was led by Frank Lubin, who helped popularize basketball in the country and was called the "Grandfather of Lithuanian Basketball".
Having been part of the Soviet Union, Lithuanian players frequently formed the core of the Soviet national team. This was especially so for the 1988 Olympic basketball gold medal-winning team which got most of its scoring from four Lithuanians: Valdemaras Chomičius, Rimas Kurtinaitis, Šarūnas Marčiulionis and Arvydas Sabonis.
After the restoration of Lithuanian independence in 1990, the national team was resurrected. Lithuania won bronze medals in the first three Olympics to include NBA players – 1992, 1996, and 2000, finished fourth in 2004 and 2008, and qualified to play at London 2012 Olympics.

2012 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament 
The 2012 FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Men was a men's basketball tournament that consisted of twelve national teams, wherein the top three teams earned a place in the 2012 Olympics basketball tournament. It was held on 2–8 July 2012 in Caracas, Venezuela.
The team started off the tournament with a convincing victory against Venezuela. Although Lithuania lost against Nigeria the following day, it finished first in its group because of the goal average, which turned out in Lithuania's favor. After the Lithuania loss to Nigeria because of which Venezuela took only 3rd place in group and didn't qualified to the quarter-finals there were rumors that Lithuania incurred the wrath of Venezuelans and that they're trying to specially harm Lithuania national team. A few events such as tanks column near training hall which polluted the air in it during the Lithuania workout, broken bus during the trip to the arena before the quarter-final game against Puerto Rico, disappeared jerseys and water before the same game against Puerto Rico started the talks about it. Despite all that, in the quarterfinals, Lithuanians eventually defeated Puerto Rico in a dramatic game. In the semifinals, Lithuania crushed the Dominican Republic and thus qualified for the 2012 London Olympics.
Eurobasket 2011 
It was the second Eurobasket tournament Lithuania hosted after 72 years. By numerous officials and other European basketball specialists and pundits, it was regarded as the best Eurobasket organized ever. Though it certainly wasn't the best for the domestic team, which finished in 5th – respectable, but, according to many Lithuanian fans, an overwhelmingly disappointing place. Lithuanian point guard star Šarūnas Jasikevičius pointed out that this championship will be remembered for the tragic loss in the quarterfinals against Macedonian national team. The only consolation being, secured place for the 2012 Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
The effort to mould future prospects and the past stars was counterproductive. It wasn't that supersonic team, sweeping everyone in the last years FIBA World Championship but rather arrhythmic body, which in the end yielded to relentless national pressure and unfounded expectations.
FIBA World Championship 2010 
On December 12, 2009, Lithuania was granted a wild card to participate in the World Championship in Turkey the following year.
Lithuania started the tournament against New Zealand. After a tough first quarter, Lithuanians took control of the game and kept ahead by a comfortable lead till the final buzzer, which signaled Lithuania's victory 92:79. The second game was against Canada. After reducing the 17 point deficit in the fourth quarter, Lithuanians finally gained a small lead towards the end of the game. Canada had a chance to win the game, but Jermaine Anderson's game winning three rimmed out at the last second and Lithuania celebrated their second victory 70:68. The next match was against the defending champion Spain, and after another comeback from an 18 point deficit, the Lithuanians won the upsetting game 76:73, Linas Kleiza's free-throws sealing the victory.
Victory against Spain ensured Lithuania's qualification to the eighth finals. Lithuania's next match was against France, which held a perfect 3–0 record. France quickly gained momentum in the first half and forced Lithuania to a double-digit deficit. However, in the second half, Lithuania deftly reduced the deficit and cruised past the French defense, outscoring them 45–25 to win the game 69:55. The French were forced into second place as Lithuanians took Group D's leadership spot. Lithuania won the last game against Lebanon without much difficulty 84:66 and finished with a perfect 5–0 record in the preliminary round.
After sweeping China (78:67) in the eighth finals and crushing Argentina in a blowout game (104:85) in the quarterfinals, Lithuania lost to Team USA by 15 points. They captured the bronze medal after winning against Eurobasket's silver medalist Serbia 99:88. This was Lithuania's best World Championship result.

Eurobasket 2009 
Before EuroBasket 2009 basketball stars like Šarūnas Jasikevičius, Ramūnas Šiškauskas, Darius Songaila, Arvydas Macijauskas, Rimantas Kaukėnas and Žydrūnas Ilgauskas decided not to help Lithuania national team. After huge losses in the team roster and point guard shortage, Lithuania started tournament with loss to Turkey (76-84).

The Lithuanian basketball team of 2007 finished the Eurobasket 2007 with an 8–1 record, winning their first ever bronze medal in Eurobasket tournaments. Winning the third place game in the tournament against Greece allowed Lithuania to qualify for the Olympic basketball tournament at Beijing 2008.
FIBA World Championship 2006 
In the 2006 FIBA World Championship, Lithuania finished 7th. This equaled their best ever finish, achieved in 1998, but some saw this as an under-achievement.
They started the tournament with a narrow 2-point loss to Turkey. In their second match they lost to, eventual finalists, Greece in overtime. In that game they made 25 turnovers, which was one of a couple of matches where they made a large number of mistakes. Their third game against Qatar was an easy victory 106:65. This restored some confidence ahead of the must-win match against Australia, as they won it 78:57. Their last group match against Brazil was close in the end, as Brazil lost it by 5 points 79:74. This ensured Lithuania's advance to the eighth-finals to face Italy. They won the match by 3 points 71:68, although Arvydas Macijauskas fouled an Italian player during a 3-point attempt in the dying seconds which gave Italy the chance to level the score, but all 3 free throws were missed. They lost their quarter final match against the eventual champions, Spain by 22 points. Lithuania turned the ball over 28 times during that match. They lost to Turkey in over-time of the 5th–8th place classification round, in which they wasted a 12-point lead in the last 3 minutes of the fourth quarter to take the match into over-time and eventually lost the 5-minute over-time 20:9. The final result was 95:84 to Turkey. They won their last match against Germany 77:62.
Sireika resigned soon after the championship. On December 28, 2006, Ramūnas Butautas was announced as the new coach of the team.
After recovering of independence (from 1990) 
After recovering country independence, Lithuania becomes a full member of World basketball. In 1990 independent Lithuanian Basketball Federation was restored with new statutes. In 1991, during FIBA congress in Springfield, USA, LKF president S.Stonkus presented Lithuania basketball and requested a right to be a full member of FIBA once again. After a short FIBA congress session, FIBA president George Kilian announced that Lithuania becomes member of FIBA again and invited Lithuania to participate in all of the FIBA organized events.
Lithuania returned to basketball during 1992 Summer Olympics, held in Barcelona, and immediately won Olympic bronze medals winning against Unified Team (team formed from former USSR countries, except the Baltic States) at the bronze medals game. Olympic team almost had no state funding, so the team had to search for financial supporters by themselves in order to play international games. Šarūnas Marčiulionis had an experience and contacts in USA as he was the first USSR player to sign a contract with NBA team, so he searched for financial supporters which could finance Lithuania participation in 1992 Summer Olympics. USA rock band Grateful Dead decided to help Lithuanians. They allowed to use their band attributes - skull mans. Jersey with famous Skull Man, dunking into the basket, was created by designer Greig Speirs, who designated his profit to Lithuania national basketball team and Lithuania child's fund. Marius Markevičius created a movie, named The Other Dream Team, about this period.
In 1996 Summer Olympics, Lithuania lost to Yugoslavia again. This time at the semi-finals. Later Lithuanians won against Australia and decorated with bronze medals. It was the last time when basketball fans were able to observe magical Sabas (Arvydas Sabonis) and Šaras (Šarūnas Marčiulionis) tandem. Marčiulionis left Lithuania basketball team and shortly after that retired due to injuries.
Times of change affected team results. Lithuania haven't won any of trophies until 2000. Lithuania recalled about themselves during 2000 Summer Olympics. The best Lithuania basketball players of that time - Arvydas Sabonis, Žydrūnas Ilgauskas and Artūras Karnišovas were unable to play due to injuries, however Lithuania basketball team, ably coached by Jonas Kazlauskas, almost won against Team USA formed from NBA players at the semi-finals. USA won by only 2 points. Lithuanians won bronze once again.
EuroBasket 2001 was a fiasco for Lithuania. Despite the fact, that they came to Turkey with almost the same roster, Lithuanians didn't even reached the quarter-finals after losing to Latvia. As an result, Lithuania lost all chances of participating at the 2002 FIBA World Championship.
During 2004 Summer Olympics, Lithuania started powerfully. Lithuania won first place in the group and eliminated China at the quarter-finals, however Lithuanians lost semi-finals to Italy and had to play for bronze against USA. Despite the fact that Lithuanians won against USA during group stage, they failed to do that again and took fourth place.
During EuroBasket 2005, a lot of basketball stars decided not to help Lithuania national team that year. Despite that, Lithuanians lost only once, however it was an quarter-final game and as an result Lithuanians took only fifth place.
Soviet period (1940–1990) 
Due to occupation, Lithuanians were unable to represent Lithuania in FIBA organized tournaments. In 1941 Baltic states tournament was organized in Kaunas Sports Hall. Game between Latvia and Lithuania was observed by 6000 people. Lithuania won that game with result 38:33.
During occupation period, Lithuania basketball teams successfully played in USSR organized tournaments. The best Lithuania players played for Soviet Union national basketball team and won bunch of titles with it. As an members of Soviet Union team, Lithuanians (men and women) totally won 17 Olympic medals (8 gold, 6 silver and 3 bronze), 17 World championship medals (11 gold, 5 silver and one bronze), 51 EuroBasket medals (36 gold, 4 silver and 11 bronze).
Interwar period (1920–1940) 
In 1935 famous Lithuanian American basketball coaches (B.Budrikas, J.Knašas, Feliksas Kriaučiūnas and Konstantinas Savickas) arrives to Kaunas as a participants of World Lithuanians congress. Feliksas Kriaučiūnas and Konstantinas Savickas stayed in Lithuania and started teaching Lithuanians about basketball secrets. In 1937 Lithuania played a game against Latvia (one of the strongest basketball team of that time). Lithuania lost that game with result 29:41, however it was quite good performance for Lithuanians as they played much worse previously. Bacause of that, Lithuania decided to participate in EuroBasket 1937 held in Riga, Latvia. That year Lithuanians became champions of Europe for the first time in the history.
Lithuania was granted a right to organize EuroBasket 1939. In addition to this, Kaunas Sports Hall was built. It was the first basketball arena in whole Europe. Pranas Lubinas led Lithuania to the second title that year.
