HistoryEdit

Ukraine's best result to date was finishing 6th at EuroBasket 2013 with six wins. The result was enough to help the national team qualify for the 2014 FIBA World Cup after defeating Italy in the 5th-8th place game. The only major global event that the national team has yet to qualify for is the Summer Olympics.
