Club info

A true powerhouse in German basketball, last season marked the ninth in a row in which ALBA Berlin advanced at least one stage in either the EuroLeague or EuroCup, even if it will not go down among the most memorable. A strong start to its EuroCup campaign featured a road win at RETAbet Bilbao Basket and a couple of wins at home to reach the midway point of the regular season tied for the best record in Group B at 3-1. However, a three-game slide saw ALBA slip in the standings and it did not clinch a ticket to the Top 16 until beating Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius in its regular season finale and ultimately placed third with a 4-4 mark. The next stage proved much tougher with the two eventual finalists, Unicaja Malaga and Valencia Basket in the same group. ALBA managed only one victory – over Cedevita Zagreb – before bowing out. Back home, to FC Bayern Munich was ALBA’s nemesis. ALBA advanced to the German Cup semifinals where it lost to Bayern and then placed sixth in the German League with an 18-14 mark, but fell to Bayern 3-1 in the quarterfinals to end its season.

History

Founded in 1989 as BG Charlottenburg, the club changed its name to ALBA two years later and soon started its string of success and its journey to becoming a top-class basketball organization widely respected around the continent. By raising the 1995 Korac Cup behind Sasa Obradovic, Teo Alibegovic and Coach Svetislav Pesic, ALBA became the first German team to win a European trophy. What followed was dominance on the home front as Berlin reeled off seven consecutive German League titles. Those triumphs also earned ALBA a regular spot in the EuroLeague, with players like Wendell Alexis, Henrik Rodl and Marco Pesic playing major roles in the dynasty. ALBA made it to the EuroLeague eighthfinals in 1997, 1998 and 2000 and reached the 2001 FIBA SuproLeague quarterfinals. In 2004, ALBA began a run of four straight seasons in the ULEB Cup, during which it made history by winning the longest game recorded in European club competition: a five-overtime 141-127 victory over KK Bosna in December 2007. The club won the German Cup in 2006, before winning the 2008 German League championship. In the 2008-09 EuroLeague, ALBA advanced to the Top 16 for the first time and also lifted the German Cup that season. ALBA reached the 2010 EuroCup final – cheered on by fans that traveled by car and bus all the way from Berlin due to air traffic problems – but Valencia Basket ended their chances of seeing their team lift the trophy. Former player Obradovic took over as head coach in 2012 and guided ALBA to German Cup trophies in 2013 and 2014 and more success in the EuroCup. ALBA reached the 2013-14 EuroCup quarterfinals with a 15-3 record and Reggie Redding was named to the All-EuroCup Second Team, but eventual champ Valencia stopped ALBA in the quarterfinals on point-difference. ALBA also made it back to the German League finals before losing to FC Bayern Munich. A year later, the team returned to the EuroLeague and registered Top 16 wins against FC Barcelona, Panathinaikos Athens and Maccabi Electra Tel Aviv to finish the phase with a 7-7 record, but missed out on a EuroLeague playoff berth on a tiebreaker. ALBA won another German Cup in 2016 by beating Bayern in Munich in a thrilling finale, but was eliminated in the German playoff quarterfinals. Last season ALBA was in the hunt in every competition as it advanced one stage in the EuroCup, reached the German Cup semifinals and the German League playoffs, but finished without any trophies, which is something the club will seek to change in 2018.
