History

In 2006, the Basketball Federation of Montenegro along with this team joined the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) on its own following the Independence of Montenegro.

The Montenegrin national team entered international competition in 2009[2], and appointed Duško Vujošević as the national coach. Since becoming a separate team, Montenegro have won 13 games in a row, until losing to Israel in August 2010, their first ever losing game.
