Perennial Montenegrin champion KK Buducnost Voli Podgorica returns to the Eurocup for the sixth time in seven seasons, eager to top its best outing ever in the competition. The club has made it to the quarterfinals in each of the last two campaigns. Last season, Buducnost survived the Eurocup regular season and went past the Last 16 with a crucial home win over Banvit BK Bandirma, before it was eliminated in the quarters by eventual champion Lokomotiv Kuban. Buducnost swept Sutjeska to keep its streak alive of winning the Montenegrin League every season since the country became independent, but lost in the Montenegrin Cup finals against the same opponent and missed the Adriatic League final four by one spot. Founded in 1949, Buducnost worked for more than 30 years to reach the first division of the former Yugoslav League and another decade more to cement its place in that competition. By the end of the century, however, it was the team to beat in one of the world’s most concentrated areas of basketball talent and devotion. Buducnost started with Yugoslav Cup titles in 1996 and 1998, but the best was about to come. Three straight Yugoslav League titles were forged by a record-setting domestic winning streak of 51 games that ran from 1999 to 2001. Players like Dejan Tomasevic, Milenko Topic and Vlado Scepanovic helped make it all possible. Another cup trophy made for a league-cup double in 2001. Buducnost was also a force in the 2000-01 Euroleague, where it reached the playoffs. The club returned to the Euroleague for the next two years, but failed to reach the Top 16. A quieter period followed during which Buducnost took part in the ULEB Cup, though it missed the elimination rounds in 2004 and 2005. Buducnost reached the Serbia and Montenegro League semifinals in its last appearance in that competition. Buducnost naturally became the new team to beat in the reborn Montenegrin League and has won every league title since 2007 – doing so in dominant fashion. In 2009-10, the club missed out on the Eurocup after falling to Brose Baskets by a single point in the Qualifying Round, and in 2010-11, Buducnost came up short in the Turkish Airlines Euroleague Qualifying Round and the Eurocup regular season. But it won the Montenegrin double and reached the Adriatic League final four, where it lost against Partizan mt:s Belgrade in the semifinals. In 2011-12 the club reached the Adriatic League final four, the Eurocup quarterfinals for the first time, and remained unstoppable at home. After reaching the Eurocup quarterfinals again last season, Buducnost can look to a bright future and is set to stay quite competitive in 2013-14.
