Club info

Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius was truly a streaky squad in 2016-17. A scheduling quirk saw the club open the EuroCup with three straight road games and it lost them all in frustrating fashion – including a game at RETAbet Bilbao Basket in which it led in the fourth quarter and in double overtime at ALBA Berlin. However Rytas hosted its next three games and won them all to get to 3-3. Rytas then lost back-to-back games to finish fourth in its regular season group. The Top 16 started with another game in which Rytas lost a fourth-quarter lead, this time at home against Hapoel Bank Yahav Jerusalem. But Coach Pacesas’s men swept Nizhny Novgorod to get back in the playoff race. It all came down to the Top 16 finale in which Rytas defeated Zenit St. Petersburg, but not by enough of a margin to take the tiebreaker and missed the playoffs by a few baskets. The team also faced disappointment at home as Juventus knocked it out of the Lithuanian Cup in the quarterfinals. Rytas was the regular season runner-up in the Lithuanian League with a 26-10 record and won its first four playoff games – three in a quarterfinals sweep of Pieno Zvaigzdes and the fourth in Game 1 of the semifinals against Lietkabelis Panevezys, however Lietkabelis then won three in a row to take the series and end Rytas’s season on a down note.

History

This season will be Lietuvos Rytas Vilnius’s fifth straight in the EuroCup and 10th overall and during that time the club has made a name for itself by winning the competition twice and getting to at least the semifinals on two other occasions. Founded in 1997, Rytas filled a hole left by what had been Vilnius's first great basketball club, Statyba. Quickly earning a reputation as a top Lithuanian team and a hard-to-beat squad at any level, Rytas made it to the 2000 Saporta Cup semifinals, reached the Northern Europe Basketball League (NEBL) final that season and won the Lithuanian League to break a decade of domination by Zalgiris Kaunas. After another pair of domestic crowns in 2002, Rytas made a successful ULEB Cup debut in the 2003-04 campaign by advancing to the quarterfinals and then truly made the big time by lifting the trophy in 2005 after beating Makedonikos in the EuroCup Championship Game behind Tyrone Nesby, Simas Jasaitis and finals MVP Robertas Javtokas. The win also earned Rytas a ticket to the 2005-06 EuroLeague, and in its debut the team got to the Top 16 of Europe's marquee competition. Rytas also lifted the Baltic League and the Lithuanian League trophies that season. Rytas was back in the ULEB Cup Final in 2007 and though it lost to Real Madrid, the club earned its way back to the EuroLeague and successfully defended the Baltic League title. Rytas got back to the EuroLeague Top 16 in the 2007-08 season, but on the home front lost three domestic finals, all against Zalgiris. However, Rytas bounced back with its best season ever and lifted five trophies in 2008-09. Chuck Eidson was the 2008-09 EuroCup MVP and Marijonas Petravicius earned Final Eight MVP honors as Rytas rallied past Khimki Moscow Region in unbelievable fashion to win its second continental trophy. Rytas added all four possible domestic titles for a true dream season. In 2009-10, Rytas won the double in Lithuania and returned to the EuroLeague Top 16 in 2010-11. A year later the club made it to the EuroCup Finals, but lost against Valencia Basket in the semifinal. Over the past four years Rytas has not advanced past the EuroCup eighthfinals, and came up short of winning trophies with the exception of when it beat Zalgiris to win the 2016 Lithuanian Cup behind Antanas Kavaliauskas. The success did not follow in the Lithuanian playoffs, however, where Rytas has lost in the semifinals in each of the past two seasons. However after some management changes have fueled new blood into the team, much can change this season in the Lithuanian capital.
