The Peru national basketball team represents Peru in international competitions. It is administrated by the Peru Basketball Federation (Spanish: Federación Deportiva Peruana de Basketball) (F.D.P.B.).[1]

Peru joined the International Federation of Basketball (FIBA) in 1936 and has one of the world's longest basketball traditions. Its best result to date was 7th place at the 1950 FIBA World Cup.

Until the mid-70s, Team Peru was one of South America's major basketball forces. It was the second best South American contender at the 1936 Summer Olympics and qualified for four out of five Basketball World Cups between 1950 and 1967. From 1963 to 1973, it finished in the Top Four at the South American Basketball Championship at six straight events. However, after 1973, the team went through a steep decline. The team won its last victory at the South American Basketball Championship on 22 July 2001, when Peru beat Ecuador 72-58.
