Club info
As one of just two clubs to have won the Eurocup more than once, Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius knows what it takes to blaze trails in this competition. What's more, Rytas starts the season with a hunger for hardware after suffering elimination last season in the eighthfinals, the earliest exit of its six Eurocup participations. The club's impressive winning tradition dates back nearly to when it was founded in 1997 as a long-awaited replacement for the Lithuanian capital's first great basketball club, Statyba. Rytas quickly earned a reputation by making the 2000 Saporta Cup semifinals and winning the Lithuanian League to break a decade of domination by archrival Zalgiris Kaunas. After two domestic crowns in 2002, Rytas debuted in the Eurocup by reaching the quarterfinals in 2004, but truly made the big time by lifting the trophy in 2005. That victory sent Rytas to the Euroleague, where it debuted by making the Top 16 on the way to its third Lithuanian League title. Back to the Eurocup final in 2007, Rytas lost to mighty Real Madrid. Two years later, however, Rytas was not to be denied as it rallied past Khimki for a second Eurocup title, the first club to do so. The Eurocup was one of five trophies Rytas raised in the 2008-09 season. The next year, Rytas won the Lithuanian double, its last trophies, although a semifinals run in the 2011-12 Eurocup shows that this club is never far from success. With a new head coach, Virginijus Seskus, and a two-time champ, Mindaugas Lukauskis, returning to a roster that is heavy, as always, on Lithuanian talent, Rytas will try to recreate in the 20014-15 season the elements that have made it a master of the Eurocup over the years.
