Its biggest success has been the 9th place at the FIBA Africa Championship 1972 where Madagascar surprisingly finished ahead of team Côte d'Ivoire and team Nigeria.

Madagascar was chosen as host of the FIBA Africa Championship 2011. The country received the bid from Côte d'Ivoire where the event could not take place because of instabilities after the civil war.[3] Madagascar's automatic qualification is only the 3rd time in its history. Its last appearance at Africa's most prestigious basketball event was in 2003.
