1991 FIBA Centennial Jubilee Basketball Tournament

The 1991 FIBA Centennial Jubilee Basketball Tournament was the special edition tournament of the Acropolis International Basketball Tournament that was organized jointly by FIBA Europe and the Hellenic Basketball Federation to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the sport of basketball. The tournament was held from June 5 to June 9, 1991, at the SEF Indoor Hall in Piraeus, Greece. The tournament was won by Italy, with Greece finishing in second place.


The Jubilee also included a FIBA Festival All-Star Game, which was divided up into a Balkans versus the rest of Europe format. The Balkans won the all-star game, which took place on 8 June 1991, by a score of 103–102. The tournament is not counted officially with the other 27 Acropolis International Tournaments, because it was not solely organized by the Hellenic Basketball Federation.
