The Colombia national basketball team is the basketball team representing Colombia in international competitions, organized and run by the Colombia Basketball Federation (Federación Colombiana de Baloncesto).[1]

In South America, Team Colombia made some considerable improvements in the last decade but still stands in the shadow of the Big Four Basketball Powers (Team Argentina, Team Brazil, Team Venezuela and Team Uruguay). Its best result to date remains the 7th place at the 1982 FIBA World Championship where Colombia was host.
