Lithuania men's national basketball team had its third appearance at the FIBA World Championship at the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey. Despite qualifying only as a wild card invitation by FIBA following an underhwhelming performance at EuroBasket 2009, Lithuania had its best performance ever at the World Championship, losing only the semifinal against the United States en route to a bronze medal.
