One of most successful French teams in recent years, JSF Nanterre is coming off another historic season in which the team claimed its first European trophy and won another at home. Last season Nanterre won the French Supercup over Limoges CSP and then marched to the FIBA EuroChallenge finals, where it beat Trabzonspor 63-64 on the road on a buzzer-beater by T.J. Campbell. At home, however, Nanterre did not manage to get past the French League or Leaders Cup quarterfinals, but now looks to use its recent success to further establish itself on the continental map. The club's history stretches back nearly nine decades; Jeunesse Sportive des Fontenelles de Nanterre was founded in 1927, but it competed for decades in the lower divisions and regional competitions. In 1987, volunteers – led by new president Jean Donnadieu and Coach Pascal Donnadieu – took over the club from the outskirts of Paris and Nanterre needed only 15 years to move up 10 levels of French basketball. In 2004, it gained promotion into the second tier for the first time. The club made several runs at moving up to the top flight over the next seven years and played the 2007 French Cup finals. Finally at the end of the 2010-11 season, Nanterre claimed the Pro B crown by downing Dijon 73-60 in the title game and reached Pro A status. Its first-ever season in the top French League saw the club preserve its status. A year later Nanterre reached the French Cup finals and squeezed into the playoffs before going on a magical run of seven wins in eight games en route to winning the 2013 French title. In its Turkish Airlines Euroleague debut in the 2013-14 season, Nanterre missed the Top 16 by one win and then moved on to the Eurocup, where it reached the eighthfinals. At home, the team added to its trophy collection with its first French Cup title by beating SLUC Nancy, and also played in the Leaders Cup final. After two more trophies last season, an ambitious Nanterre side now looks to make another historic season happen.
