International Student Basketball Cup is the annual tournament meant to showcase top college basketball teams of Russia and other countries.
In 2019 ISBC will be held for the second time. The tournament will take place in Moscow on May 28 – June 3 with the participation of 12 teams from Europe, Asia and Australia. We’ve attracted strong teams to show everybody how exciting college basketball can be.
Last year 13 teams from 12 countries took part in the ISBC. Russia 1 became the first champion of the tournament beating Belarus in the dramatic final game. Serbia took the third place. ISBC made it into the history of international student basketball as the second tournament after the Universiade gathering best student teams from all over the world.
ISBC is the successor of International Student Basketball League. Its championship was held from 2012 till 2017.
The ISBC is hosted by Association of student basketball. ASB is the official university basketball league in Russia. The league was launched in 2007. Our ultimate goal is to involve as many students as possible into the sport of basketball, providing each and every one of them with the best opportunity to grow his or her game.

- 800 college and university teams playing every year;
- 70 regions of the country represented in the league;
- 4000+ games played every season;
- 10 000 student-athletes currently in the league.
