The inaugural FIBA Africa Championship took place in Cairo in 1962 with the host United Arab Republic emerging as the champion. The UAR, a short-lived union between Egypt and Syria, defended its title two years later in Casablanca and won a third crown in 1970. Senegal, Egypt, Cote d'Ivoire and the Central African Republic also won multiple titles in the 1970s and 1980s. 

Angola won its first Afrobasket title in 1989 and won 10 gold medals until 2009 including six straight championships. The Angolans won a record 11th title in 2013.
