The Angolan Men's Basketball League, (in Portuguese) Campeonato Nacional de Basquetebol em Séniores Masculinos is the top tier men’s basketball league in Angola. Formerly known as BAI Basket, BIC Basket, and now Unitel Basket, named after its major sponsors, formerly Banco Africano de Investimentos, Banco de Investimento e Crédito and now Unitel, the competition is organized by the Angolan Basketball Federation.

In 2014, the Angolan Basketball Federation signed a sponsoring deal with Angola's Banco de Investimento e Crédito, which it claimed to be more favourable than the one with Banco Africano de Investimentos. Such agreement caused the league to be renamed as BIC Basket.[1]

Primeiro de Agosto has been the most successful club in Angola with a total 17 titles won, followed by Petro de Luanda, with 12, ASA, 3, Recreativo do Libolo and Sporting Clube de Luanda, 2, whereas Clube Ferroviário de Luanda have won a title.

Before independence[edit]

It wasn't until 1963 that the Portuguese national basketball championship began to include clubs from the províncias ultramarinas (overseas provinces) of Angola and Mozambique. This new format began with one team from each of the three locations and then changed to two teams from the host and one from each of the remaining two locations, who played a round-robin (then double round-robin) tournament to determine the champion of Portugal, with the championship taking place alternatively at each of the three capitals: Luanda (Angola), Lourenço Marques (Mozambique) and Lisbon/Porto (Portugal). From 1963 to 1974, 12 championships were held, with only one Angolan club succeeding to win the championship: Benfica de Luanda in 1967 [2]
