The Ukrainian Basketball SuperLeague (USL) (Ukrainian: Українська баскетбольна суперліга) is the first-tier level of professional basketball league in Ukraine. Established in 1992, the league is currently contested by 10 clubs, it is a tier above the Ukrainian Higher League and allows for one season from the Higher League each season to be promoted.

The league exists out of a regular season, in which team play for playoff-seeding, followed by playoffs to determine the Ukrainian champion. Defunct club Budivelnyk is the most successful team in league history with 10 titles; the winners of the Superleague qualify for the qualifying rounds of the Basketball Champions League (BCL).
