At the Asian Basketball Championship, the country had its greatest success between 1971 and 1993 when it qualified for 12 straight events. Since 2001, the team has been one of the contenders at the Southeast Asian Basketball Championship. There, the team has won two bronze medals to date.
On 5 June 2009, a "quiet revolution" took place in Singapore national men's basketball team. The team previously representing Singapore was replaced by young talents of the likes of Wei Jian Hong, Steven Khoo, Desmond Oh and Wei Long Wong, with only two senior players from the old squad retained: Pathman Matialakan and Michael Wong. Most of the national team players now play for the Singapore Slingers, the island's only professional basketball club.
2011 Southeast Asian GamesEdit
The Singapore Men's National team left for the 2011 SEA Games having had the best preparation for a major tournament in the past 5 years. On 30 September to 1 October 2011, represented by most of the national team players, the Singapore Slingers was invited for the inaugural Cable Beach Invitational at Broome, Australia, where they played the Perth Wildcats and the Indonesian National Basketball Team. On 5 October 2011, the National team proceeded to play the Perth Redbacks of the Australian SBL. From 25–31 October 2011, the team competed in the 4th China-Asean Invitational Tournament, of which they finished 3rd overall in the competition.
