The Bosnia and Herzegovina national basketball team represents Bosnia and Herzegovina in international basketball games and competitions. It is organized by the Basketball Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

History[edit]

Until 1992, Bosnia was a part of Yugoslavia, which meant players born in Bosnia and Herzegovina played for the Yugoslavia national basketball team. Notable players born in Bosnia who played for Yugoslavia include: Mirza Delibašić, Dražen Dalipagić, Predrag Danilović, Zoran Savić, Aleksandar Nikolić, and Borislav Stanković. During this time, Bosnia and Herzegovina's capital city, Sarajevo, was one of five locations where games were played during the 1970 FIBA World Championship, where Yugoslavia finished in first place, the team's first gold medal at the FIBA World Cup.

Ever since gaining its independence from Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina has regularly qualified for the EuroBasket, Europe's biggest competition and major tournament. Their best result was finishing eighth in 1993, after making the quarterfinals. The only times Bosnia and Herzegovina didn't qualify for the EuroBasket since their independence, were in 1995, 2007, and 2009.
