Union Olimpija Ljubljana returns to the Eurocup for the second consecutive season, hoping to continue its climb back to the European elite. A winner of 15 Slovenian League and 19 Slovenian Cup titles, Olimpija is coming off a rare title free season after losing to Krka Novo Mesto in the finals of both competitions. The club dates back to 1946, and adopted the name Olimpija in 1954. It was an early power in the Yugoslavian League, with the great Ivo Daneu leading the team to six domestic titles between 1957 and 1970. Slovenia's independence started a new era of success that saw Olimpija conquer league and cup trophies for 10 consecutive years. Olimpija also won the Saporta Cup in 1994 by beating Tau Vitoria 91-81 in the title game, and made its way to the 1997 Euroleague Final Four before losing to eventual champion Olympiacos. Over the years, Olimpija had a streak of 17 straight Euroleague appearances, among which it fell one win short of 2003 Euroleague Final Four. It also won the inaugural Adriatic League in 2002, all while managing to land and develop young, promising players who have gone on to become stars, including Sani Becirovic, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Rasho Nesterovic, Jiri Welsch and Beno Udrih. In addition to continued success at home, Olimpija was back in the Top 16 in 2010-11 season, and reached the Adriatic League finals before losing at Stozice to Partizan Belgrade. The last few seasons have not gone as well, but the proud club returns ready to contend in all competitions.
