The CBC Championship or Caribebasket is a FIBA-sponsored basketball tournament where national teams from the Caribbean participate. These countries make up Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC). The top three or four teams typically earn berths to Centrobasket where they compete for spots in the FIBA Americas Championship, from which they can qualify for the FIBA World Championship or Olympics. There are currently 24 Caribbean countries that may compete in this event.

Celebration of the tournament typically is every two years. Puerto Rico is traditionally the strongest team from this region, but they rarely compete as the squad usually has already earned a berth in the subsequent Centrobasket. Until 2002, this tournament was called the CARICOM Basketball Championship. Through 2007, the tournament had been held nineteen times.
