Its biggest success was the gold medal at the 1996 South East Asian Championship.
Team Indonesia is one of the major teams in Southeast Asia. The team finished among the top-four teams in Asia at the 1967 Asian Basketball Championship. At the 1996 Southeast Asian Basketball Championship, Indonesia was the dominant country and won the gold medal.
Indonesia participated at the 2009 FIBA Asia Championship as well, which was held 6–16 August 2009, in Tianjin, China. They were able to qualify for the said tournament by placing second in the 2009 SEABA Championship held from 6–9 June 2009.
The team finished 15th out of 16 competing teams at the FIBA Asia Championship, where only the top-3 qualified for the World Basketball Championships. For these events, the head coach of the team was Rastafari Horongbala.
At the FIBA Asia Championship 2009, Indonesia finished 15th, leaving behind Sri Lanka. On individual performances, Kelly Purwanto and Isman Thoyib finished among the tournament's top performers. Purwanto finished in the top ten in steals per game, Thoyib finished in the top ten in blocks per game. Indonesian basketball-icon Mario Wuysang was not able to represent his country at that event due scheduling conflicts. (the final four of the Indonesian IBL was scheduled about the same time with this Asia Championship).
Indonesia will co-host the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup along with Philippines and Japan. There, they will also make their FIBA Basketball World Cup debut.
In the 1930s, even though it had not officially become an independent country, several cities in Indonesia already had local basketball clubs. And after the proclamation of independence, 17 August 1945, basketball games began to be widely known in the cities that became the basis of struggle such as Yogyakarta and Solo. The basketball game was played for the first time at the national level, in 1948 in Solo at the National Sports Week I (PON I). Although this organization does not yet have a national sports master, it can get a quite lively welcome, both in terms of viewers and from the participants themselves.
Then three years after that, on 23 October 1951, Indonesian basketball association was formed and named Persatuan Basketball Seluruh Indonesia, and later in 1955, due to the improvement of the name in accordance with Indonesian rules, the basket basket was renamed Persatuan Bola Basket Seluruh Indonesia (PERBASI). Perbasi was later accepted as a member of FIBA in 1953, and a year later, for the first time Indonesia sent a team to compete in the Asian Games in Manila at that time.
