Club info
One of the winningest teams in Belgian basketball, Telenet Ostend is returning to the Eurocup for the fifth consecutive season, and for its ninth appearance in the competition. Last season was another strong showing for Ostend as it matched its best output by reaching the Eurocup Last 32, while continuing its dominance at home by winning its third straight Belgian League and Cup double. The club was founded in 1970 and made its debut in European competitions in 1974-75 by reaching the Korac Cup group stage. It needed just nine years to win its first title, the Belgian Cup, and Ostend went on to dominate Belgian basketball in the 1980s with seven league titles – including six straight from 1981-86 – and five Belgian Cups. The next decade started strong with another cup triumph in 1991. It won the league in 1995, the cup in 1997 and 1998 and climbed to the 1999 Korac Cup semifinals. Ostend celebrated back-to-back Belgian League titles in 2001 and 2002 and another Belgian Cup in 2001. Euroleague and ULEB Cup appearances followed, though without any major runs. More league titles in 2006 and 2007 marked another peak for the club and Ostend claimed the Belgian Cup in 2008 and 2010. In 2010-11, Ostend reached and hosted the FIBA EuroChallenge final four, but lost against Krka Novo Mesto in the semifinals. It was a title free campaign, but the next season, with the arrival of head coach Dario Gjergja, started another Ostend run as it returned to the Eurocup and reclaimed the Belgian League crown. In the two seasons that followed, the team did even better by winning consecutive Belgian League and Cup doubles, while making noise in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague qualifying rounds and coming within a game of returning to the Euroleague Regular Season in 2013, but Lietuvos Rytas stood in the way. With domestic dominance under its belt, Coach Gjergja’s team now looks to use its experience to make a deeper run in the Eurocup.
