The organization oversees the regulation of the sport, team and player registration, rules of the game, various official (such as referees and statisticians) certification, and the National team. It is responsible for sanctioning official leagues at various levels, issuing league schedules, and certifying match results. The IBA also handles associating with international bodies such as FIBA and Euroleague Basketball (who organizes the EuroLeague).[2]
