Basketball in Serbia And Montenegro (SCG)

The team of Yugoslavia played their first official match and was defeated by the host team of Romania at the Balkan Games held in Bucharest on September 22, 1946. The Yugoslav team players were: Popovic, Gec, Tajner, Srebrenik, Stojkovic, Kobali, Nikolic, Demsar, Dimic, Pitoni and Tertan.

Stevica Colovic was the first coach to replace Bora Jovanovic. His team’s debut in European Championships (1947 in Prague) fully coincided with their potential. They were placed next to the last among 14 participating national teams.

An army of enthusiasts embarked on a pioneering endeavor of developing a serious basketball movement, but those who, as a rule, are seen as the most deserving and recognized as mostly indebted for the breakthrough of Yugoslav basketball and its appearance on the world’s scene are the famous quartet: Nebojsa Popovic, Radomir Saper, Aleksandar Nikolic, and Borislav Stankovic.


As Italy had withdrawn its participation, Yugoslavia was invited to take part in the First World Championship held in Buenos Aires, in 1950. In the premiere match played against Peru (27:33), as recorded in the basketball history of World Championships, Nebojsa Popovic was the one who scored first points from a free throw line.The longest game “plavi” have ever played
