The Croatia men's national basketball team (Croatian: Hrvatska košarkaška reprezentacija)[3] represents Croatia in international basketball competition and is controlled by the Croatian Basketball Federation.[4] Croatia is currently ranked fourteenth in the FIBA World Rankings.[5]

The biggest success Croatia has achieved was at the 1992 Barcelona Olympics when the team reached the finals against the United States and won the silver medal. Croatia has also won one bronze medal at the FIBA World Cup and two bronze medals at EuroBasket.

Croatia's Krešimir Ćosić, Dražen Petrović, Dino Rađa and Mirko Novosel are members of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Ćosić being inducted in 1996 as a player, Petrović in 2002 and Rađa in 2018 also as players, and Novosel in 2007 as a coach. Petrović, Ćosić, Kukoč and Novosel are members of the FIBA Hall of Fame. Ćosić is also the only Croatian to have received the FIBA Order of Merit. Ćosić, however, never played for the Croatian national team, he was a member of the Yugoslavia national basketball team holding the record for number of medals (including Olyimpic gold) and the most games played by a player.

History[edit]

Prior to Croatian independence[edit]

Croatia played its first unofficial friendly game on 2 June 1964 in Karlovac.[6] Croatian team played against US All Star Team and lost 65–110 (31–50). USA players coached by Red Auerbach were Bob Cousy, Tom Heinsohn, K. C. Jones, Jerry Lucas, Bob Pettit, Oscar Robertson and Bill Russell and Croatian team was Giuseppe Gjergja, Nemanja Đurić, Živko Kasun, Zlatko Kiseljak, Slobodan Kolaković, Dragan Kovačić, Boris Križan, Stjepan Ledić, Mirko Novosel, Marko Ostarčević, Petar Skansi and Željko Troskot.[7][8]

Independent Croatia[edit]

After independence of Croatia in 1991, the first official tournament played by Croatians were the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona. Croatia defeated the CIS team 75-74 and reached the final against the USA Dream Team led by Michael Jordan. The USA won 85–117, but Croatia won its first medal at an major tournament in history.

Next tournament was 1993 EuroBasket in Germany. Tragically, before the championship Dražen Petrović died in a car accident on 7 June 1993 at the age of 28. Croatia still managed to reach bronze medal beating Greece 99–59.

Croatia earned its third medal at the 1994 FIBA World Cup in Canada. Croatia lost the semifinals match against Russia 64–66, but beat Greece once again 78–60 for the bronze medal. A similar occurrence happened at EuroBasket 1995 in Greece. Croatia lost in the semifinals, 80–90 against Lithuania but beat Greece 73–68 for the third time in a row in a bronze medal match. That medal to date was the last Croatian medal from any major tournament. At the 1996 Summer Olympics Croatia finished in a subpar 7th place.

Decline[edit]

At the EuroBasket 1997 in Spain, the new Croatian generation emerged, but ended in 11th place. Croatia failed to qualify for the 2000, 2004 and 2012 Summer Olympics, but finished 6th in 2008. Croatia also failed to qualify for the 1998, 2002 and 2006 World Cups, with their best result being 14th place in 2010. However, at the EuroBasket 2013, Croatia had its best tournament appearance since 1995, where the team finished in 4th place.
