The Czech national basketball team is one of the newest national basketball teams in the world, having split from the Czechoslovakia national basketball team after the dissolution of the unified state in 1993, with the Slovakia national basketball team continuing as the successor of the Czechoslovak team. Its best accomplishment was seventh place at the EuroBasket 2015.

History[edit]

In 1993, the team was officially founded after the Czechoslovakia national basketball team was dissolved.

At Eurobasket 1999 in France, Czech national team took 12th place after beating Lithuania and Greece in the group phase. Luboš Bartoň was the second best scorer of the tournament (with 18.7 points per game). The next tournament of the team was EuroBasket 2007. In 2013, the team participated in EuroBasket 2013. The team returned to the next tournament, loaded with EuroLeague stars Tomáš Satoranský and Jan Veselý.

In 2016, Czech Republic qualified for the Pre-Olympic tournament but failed to reach the final tournament.
