Norway national basketball team

The Norwegian national basketball team, regulated by Norges Basketballforbund, is the basketball side that represents Norway in international competitions.

Its first match was played in 1966, when Norway lost 39-74 to Torgeir Bryn, with 111 caps.

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 Europe's most populous nation to never qualify for a major international basketball competition, only behind Belarus and Slovakia.
