Club info
Fresh off a great 2012-13 Eurocup campaign, Bilbao Basket returns to the Eurocup with the mission of winning the title to get back to the Turkish Airlines Euroleague. Bilbao went all the way to the Eurocup title game last season after winning both its regular season and Last 16 group and knocking off ratiopharm Ulm and Budivelnik Kiev in the elimination rounds. Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar ended the run in the final at the Spiroudome, but Fotis Katsikaris was chosen as the Eurocup Coach of the Year, while Kostas Vasileiadis and Lamont Hamilton earned All-Eurocup honors. Founded in 2000, Bilbao has marched along a road of success that started in the Spanish third division. Not the first professional basketball club in the city, Bilbao tapped into a ready base of eager basketball fans as it moved up almost a division per year under head coach Txus Vidorreta and future All-Euroleague superstar Tiago Splitter. In 2004, Bilbao aced the second-division playoffs to qualify for the top Spanish League and started to make noise soon after. Bilbao used a core of players featuring Javier Salgado, Marko Banic, Martin Rancik, Luke Recker and Andy Panko to finish 10th in the 2006-07 Spanish League. The next year Marcelinho Huertas and Quincy Lewis helped Bilbao climb even higher and get to the Spanish League playoffs, the Spanish King's Cup semifinals and the Spanish Supercup title game. In 2008-09, Bilbao beat all expectations in its Eurocup debut season, finishing the regular season unbeaten and winning its Last 16 group to reach the Final Eight. Bilbao then beat Zadar 76-67 in the quarterfinals, but was unable to beat BC Khimki in the semifinals. The club also returned to the Spanish League playoffs that season. Katsikaris became head coach early in the 2009-10 season and Bilbao returned to the Eurocup semifinals with Banic, Alex Mumbru and Axel Hervelle leading the way until losing against Alba Berlin in the semis. Banic was chosen as the 2009-10 Eurocup MVP. In 2010-11, “the men in black” returned to the Spanish League playoffs and knocked off Power Electronics Valencia and Real Madrid to get to the title series against FC Barcelona. A dream 2011-12 Eurocup season followed, as the club knocked off Caja Laboral Vitoria in a make-or-break regular season game and then survived the Top 16 to reach the Playoffs, in which mighty CSKA Moscow stood in its way to the Final Four. Bilbao has also reached the Spanish League playoffs in each of the last two seasons. All signs point to another ambitious season as Bilbao looks ready to challenge for the Eurocup crown.
