Rwanda national basketball team is a basketball team that represents Rwanda in international competitions. It is administered by the Fédération Rwandaise de Basketball Amateur "FERWABA."[1]

Before 2000, Team Rwanda was virtually unknown to most basketball fans worldwide. Since the mid-2000s however, the team slowly but surely has made a name for itself. Team Rwanda has emerged as a major force in East Africa and has qualified for Africa's prime basketball event four times in a row.
