The Lithuania men's national under-20 and under-21 basketball team (Lithuanian Basketball Federation.[2] The Lithuania men's national under-20 basketball team represents Lithuania at the FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship, where they previously had a chance to qualify into the FIBA Under-21 World Championship before it being discontinued by FIBA. Lithuanian national team won the last held version of the FIBA Under-21 World Championship in 2005. The 2012 FIBA Europe Under-20 Championship champions generation (born 1992), led by Jonas Valančiūnas, won every single age-restricted tournament they have competed in.
