Club info

Buducnost had a historic 2018-19 campaign, in which the team returned to the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague for the first time in almost two decades. The Montenegrin powerhouse made an effort to bring in experienced players such as Edwin Jackson, Coty Clarke and Earl Clark to be as competitive as possible on all fronts. Despite a 0-6 start, three consecutive home wins against KIROLBET Baskonia Vitoria-Gasteiz, CSKA Moscow and FC Barcelona Lassa put Buducnost on the right track. The team improved a lot with the midseason arrivals of Norris Cole and Goga Bitadze, who latter of whom ended up earning EuroLeague Rising Star honors. Despite getting three more home wins, Buducnost did not record any road victories and finished the regular season 15th with a 6-24 record. In the Adriatic League, Buducnost returned to the playoffs, eliminated Cedevita Zagreb without the home-court advantage and took the finals against Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade to do-or-die Game 5. Zvezda prevailed, but Buducnost bounced back in its domestic competitions, winning the Montenegrin League and Cup double. Buducnost defeated Mornar Bar 76-72 in Game 5 of the Montenegrin League Finals to reclaim its throne.

History

Founded in 1949, it took four decades for Buducnost to cement its place in the first division of the Yugoslav League. By the end of the century, however, it was the team to beat. After Yugoslav Cup titles in 1996 and 1998, Dejan Tomasevic, Milenko Topic and Vlado Scepanovic helped Buducnost to a record-setting domestic winning streak of 51 games and three straight Yugoslav League titles from 1999 through 2001. Another Cup triumph made for a trophy double in 2001 and Buducnost proved to be a force in the 2000-01 EuroLeague by reaching the playoffs. The club returned to the EuroLeague for the next two years, but failed to reach the Top 16. A quieter period followed before Buducnost became the face of the newborn Montenegrin League. The club won 11 consecutive titles starting from the inaugural 2006-07 campaign, while also leaving its mark in the EuroCup. Buducnost reached the EuroCup Quarterfinals in 2012 and 2013, but was ousted by Valencia Basket and eventual champ Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar, respectively. At home, Buducnost won the Montenegrin double for six straight years, from 2007 to 2012. A year later it started another string of Montenegrin doubles to go with a string of three consecutive Adriatic League semifinal appearances. In 2014-15, the team advanced through the EuroCup regular season and into the Last 32 and also lost a decisive fifth game of the Adriatic League semifinal series against Cedevita Zagreb. Buducnost bounced back from those disappointments, however, by winning the Montenegrin League and Cup again. In 2015-16, Buducnost won the Adriatic League regular season, but failed to reach the finals after getting swept in the best-of-three playoff semifinals against Mega Leks. A year later, it was eventual champ Crvena Zvezda that got the best of Buducnost in the semifinals. Meanwhile, in Montenegro, the club continued to dominate. Buducnost captured its third and fourth consecutive trophy doubles by beating Mornar Bar in both the cup and league finals in back-to-back seasons. Buducnost had a bittersweet 2017-18 season; it won its first Adriatic League title, but also saw its run of 11 consecutive Montenegrin League titles snapped. Buducnost had a 6-24 record in the EuroLeague and one of its main players, Goga Bitadze, was chosen as the competition's Rising Star. Buducnost returned to the Adriatic League finals, where it lost against Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade in five games, and conquered another Montenegrin double. With more experience than ever, Buducnost will be a dangerous foe for years to come.
