History[edit]

At the national level Republic of Srpska played friendly matches within a traditional manifestation called Basketball Tournament (Košarkaški sabor) where Republic of Srpska senior team played friendly matches against Serbian national team consisting of players from Serbian Top Division. During that tournament KSRS named the best male and female basketball players of the year.
