The Montenegrin national basketball team represents Montenegro in men's international basketball tournaments. It is organized by the Basketball Federation of Montenegro (Montenegrin: Кошаркашки Савез Црне Горе, КСЦГ; Košarkaški Savez Crne Gore, KSCG), which is the governing body of basketball in Montenegro. This team competes in the European region of FIBA.

History[edit]

In 2006, the Basketball Federation of Montenegro along with this team joined the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) on its own following the Independence of Montenegro.

The Montenegrin national team entered international competition in 2009,[1] and appointed Duško Vujošević as the national coach. Since becoming a separate team, Montenegro have won 13 games in a row, until losing to Israel in August 2010, their first ever losing game.
