The Serbian national basketball team (Serbian: Кошаркашка репрезентација Србије / Košarkaška reprezentacija Srbije) represents Serbia in international basketball matches and is controlled by the Basketball Federation of Serbia. Serbia is currently ranked sixth in the FIBA World Rankings.[1]

When Serbia became independent, it became the successor state of Serbia and Montenegro, and the Serbian team is considered by FIBA as the successor of the team of FR Yugoslavia / Serbia and Montenegro.

History[edit]

SFR Yugoslavia (1936–1991)[edit]

Serbia (2006–present)[edit]

A new generation, again led by coach Dušan Ivković returned some of the old glory by taking the silver medal in Eurobasket 2009, and fourth place in the 2010 FIBA World Championship, with the youngest team.[2] In late 2013, a Serbian basketball hall of famer Aleksandar Đorđević was confirmed as a successor to Ivković. Đorđević led team to the silver medal at the 2014 FIBA World Championship.[3]
