The Norwegian national basketball team, regulated by Norges Basketballforbund, is the basketball side that represents Norway in international competitions.
Norway has tried qualifying for the Eurobasket competition several times, but never made it. They only entered the Olympic qualification once, for the 1988 Summer Olympics. Norway is one of Europe's most populous nations to never qualify for a major international basketball competition, only behind Belarus and Slovakia.
The men's team has been inactive since the 2011 Nordic Championship in Sweden, whilst the women's team last played at the 2012 Nordic Championship on home soil.
In 2018, Norway made its return to FIBA competitions by playing the European Championship for Small Countries, after an abscense of 17 years. The team finished as runner-up after losing 59–75 in the final against Malta.
