Results highlighted in blue are Olympic qualifiers, those which aren't are World Championship qualifiers.

As host nation for the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia gained automatic qualification to the Olympics. The withdrawal of American Samoa meant that New Zealand won the 1999 tournament through default. Consequently, the FIBA Oceania qualifier into the 2000 Sydney Olympics was New Zealand.[2]

The Oceania Basketball TournamentEdit

In 1997 basketball was included in the Mini Games, so therefore the Oceania Tournament was not played. The South Pacific Mini Games are held every 4 years for Island teams in the two years between the main South Pacific Games. These Games are held in countries with limited facilities and because of the large number of basketball entries this sport has not been included in previous Mini Games. Normally the Oceania Basketball Confederation conducts the Oceania Tournament at a similar time so as to provide competition for all countries. As a result, no Australian or New Zealand teams participated.
