EuroBasket 2022, the latest edition of the quadrennial tournament to determine the European basketball champion, kicked off on September 1 and runs until September 18 with matches played in the Czech Republic, Georgia, Italy and in Germany. The knockout stage of the competition, including the final, will take place in Berlin. Luka Doncic and defending champions Slovenia were supposed to defend their title in 2021, but when the 2020 Olympics were postponed for a year due to COVID-19, EuroBasket was also pushed back.

The slight schedule adjustment will not affect future tournaments however and the next event will take place in 2025 as planned.

Two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo plays for Greece, while reigning MVP Nikola Jokic plays for Serbia. These two, along with Doncic, highlight the roster of NBA players who are in action in the tournament. Also to watch is France, who won the silver medal at the 2020 Olympics. France has five NBA players, including three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert.

If two teams are tied on points, their head-to-head meeting will be the first tiebreaker. Subsequent ties will be a point differential followed by points scored if necessary.
