This team competes in the European region of FIBA.

In 2006, the Basketball Federation of Montenegro along with this team joined the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) on its own following the Independence of Montenegro.

The Montenegrin national team entered international competition in 2008,[2] and appointed Duško Vujošević as the national coach. Montenegro started from FIBA Division B, where they won first place on their first competitive season. Since becoming a separate team, Montenegro have won 13 official games in a row, until losing to Israel in August 2010.

At that time, NBA players like Nikola Vučević and Nikola Peković became most known players of Montenegrin national basketball team.

In their first qualifiers for EuroBasket, Montenegro finished first in group. So, team qualified for Eurobasket 2011, where they played five games in the first phase - with one win and four loses. Coach of Montenegro at their first ever EuroBasket was Dejan Radonjić.

In August 2012, with the new coach Luka Pavićević, Montenegro started qualifiers for Eurobasket 2013. Again, they won first place, but without any defeat from 10 matches. Notable matches were against Serbia, first after the two countries separated. Montenegro won both games, and victory in Belgrade (73:71), in front of 18,000 spectators, is gained by Nikola Ivanović three-point shot from the center, one second before the end of match.[3][4]

As a first-placed team in qualifiers, Montenegro participated at Eurobasket 2013 in Slovenia. They made better result than 2011, with two wins and three defeats, but that was not enough for second phase of EuroBasket.

First unsuccessful qualifying campaign since independence, Montenegro had during the 2014. Surprisingly, group stage at the EuroBasket 2015 qualification, Montenegro finished third, so they failed to qualify for final tournament.

2015–present

At 2015, new coach of Montenegro became Bogdan Tanjević, who is born in Montenegro, and during the past coached Montenegrin strongest team KK Budućnost Podgorica. As national team earlier failed to qualify for EuroBasket 2015, they participated on Games of the Small States of Europe on Iceland (European countries with less than million citizens) and easily won a gold medal.

In summer 2016, Montenegro started competition in EuroBasket 2017 qualifiers, with the only ambition to qualify for their third final tournament since independence. In a group with Georgia, Slovakia and Albania, Montenegro finished as a second-placed team, with one defeat, and qualified for EuroBasket 2017.

For the first time in their history, on Eurobasket 2017, Montenegro finished as a third-placed team in group stage and qualified for knockout stage. That was the biggest success of Montenegrin national team since its’ foundation.

Competitive record

Montenegro played three times at FIBA EuroBasket (2011, 2013, 2017). Among the other competitions, as a country with less than million inhabitants, Montenegro participated at the Games of the Small States of Europe 2015 and won first place.
