Club info
After a second straight impressive domestic campaign, Virtus Rome is eyeing a breakthrough this season in the Eurocup as well. Rome reached the Italian League semifinals and played well in the Eurocup. The team from the Italian capital will need to win plenty to match its glory days. Founded in 1960, Rome needed two decades to become a force at home and abroad. It was Italian League champion in 1983 and Euroleague king in 1984. Larry Wright helped Rome rally from a 16-point second-half deficit to beat Barcelona for the 1984 Euroleague trophy with the help of Clarence Kea, Renzo Tombolato and Fulvio Polesello. Rome added a Korac Cup title in 1992, under the name of Il Messaggerol. Dino Radja led Rome to the trophy with the help of Rick Mahorn, Roberto Premier and Andrea Niccolai. The early 1990s saw Rome bring in world-renowned players like Mahorn, Radja, Danny Ferry and Brian Shaw, but despite being highly competitive, no more titles came. Star guard Carlton Myers led Rome to one of its best ever Italian League regular seasons in 20002-03 and a spot in the 2003-04 Euroleague. The club landed Dejan Bodiroga and Coach Svetislav Pesic, both recent Euroleague champs, in the summer of 2005, instantly improved its results and just missed another crown by losing the Italian Cup final in overtime. The 2007-08 season proved that Rome was back among the elite as it reached the Euroleague Top 16 and the Italian League finals. Roma went back to the Euroleague Top 16 in both 2008-09 and 2010-11 and reached the Italian league finals in 2013. Coming off another strong campaign, Rome is headed in the right direction.
