The Guinea national basketball team represents Guinea in international competitions. It is administrated by the Fédération Guinéenne de Basket-Ball (FeGuiBasket).[1]

A founding member of the FIBA Africa Championship, Guinea was once one of Africa's major teams and a regular at the continent's prime basketball event. However, since the mid-1980s the team has declined and at times even disappeared from the international scene.
