Club info
Unics Kazan comes off a great season that saw the team come within one result the Eurocup crown. This season the club has a chance to do even more as it begins its campaign in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague qualifying rounds. Unics reached the Eurocup Finals sporting a 20-2 record, which helped Andrew Goudelock earn Eurocup MVP honors and Andrea Trinchieri to be chosen as the Eurocup Coach of the Year. Valencia Basket Club stopped Unics’s march to the title, but Unics bounced back by lifting the Russian Cup trophy and reaching the VTB League semifinals. Founded in 1991, Unics soon became the perfect ambassador for the sports-crazy Republic of Tatarstan in the Russian Federation and within a decade was challenging for titles. The club reached the Russian League finals in 2001 and 2002, the year in which it also made it to the Saporta Cup semifinals. Its hard work paid off in 2003, when Unics downed CSKA in overtime to lift the Russian Cup. In 2004, Kazan was home to the FIBA Europe League final four and Unics made the most of it by downing Maroussi to win its first continental title. Unics made its ULEB Cup debut in the 2005-06 season and already reached the semifinals the following year, before losing against Real Madrid. Unics also reached the 2008 ULEB Cup Final Eight. Everything clicked in the 2010-11 Eurocup as Unics won its regular season and Last 16 groups and swept its quarterfinal series. Once in the Finals, Unics thrashed Cedevita Zagreb in the semifinals and bested Cajasol Sevilla in the championship game. Marko Popovic amassed 18 points and 11 assists to earn Finals MVP honors. Unics made its Euroleague debut a successful one in 2011-12 season by going all the way to the playoffs. No longer satisfied with being near the top, expect Unics Kazan to challenge for plenty of silverware this season and try to reach the Euroleague through the qualifying rounds.
