Club info

It was an up and down Eurocup season for Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia in its third experience in the competition. Reggio Emilia put together a team full of experienced players – Rimantas Kaukenas, Darjus Lavrinovic, Pietro Aradori, and promising youngsters – Achille Polonara, Amedeo Della Valle, that it hoped would pay off right away. Reggio Emilia was strong at home in the early going and won its opening four games in front of its fans and stole road wins at Ludwigsburg and Le Mans to finish third in Group B with a 6-4 record. Reggio Emilia stayed strong at home by downing Pinar Karsiyaka Izmir and Trabzonspor Medical Park to enter the Last 32's decisive games at 2-2. A home loss against Dolomiti Energia Trento forced Reggio Emilia to beat Karsiyaka in Izmir to be able to advance. That didn't happen; Karsiyaka prevailed 109-66 and put a bitter end to Reggio Emilia's Eurocup season.

History

Grissin Bon Reggio Emilia returns to Eurocup for the third consecutive season ready to keep growing as a team. Founded in 1974, Pallacanestro Reggiana started to compete in the Italian fourth division, but already reached the elite level in 1984. With superstars like Bob Morse, Joe Bryant, Roosevelt Bouie and Mike Mitchell, the club moved between the Italian first and second divisions throughout the 1980s and 1990s. With a young Gianluca Basile as a reference, Reggiana returned to the Italian first division in 1997 and made its debut in European competitions soon after that to reach the 1998-99 Korac Cup eighthfinals before losing to Panionios on point difference. Reggiana returned to the Korac Cup eighthfinals in 1999-00, but was ousted there by Unicaja Malaga. The club reached the Italian Cup final in 2005 and had a great run in the 2005-06 ULEB Cup, when it knocked out Ventspils in the first elimination round, but lost to Hemofarm Vrsac in the quarterfinals. Reggiana returned to the Italian second division from 2007 to 2012, but has shined recently. Led by James White, Rimantas Kaukenas and Andrea Cinciarini, Reggio Emilia beat Royal Hali Gaziantep in the 2014 FIBA EuroChallenge semifinals and then bested Triumph Lyuberty in the title game to claim its first European trophy for a perfect celebration of the club’s 40th birthday. Reggio Emilia has reached the Italian playoffs in each of the last three seasons and also made it to the Italian Cup semifinals in 2014. Things were better in the 2014-15 season, as Reggio Emilia was only seconds away from winning its first Italian League title, but the epic final series that went the maximum seven games saw Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari prevail. Sassari also stopped Reggio Emilia in the Italian Cup semifinals, while its first Eurocup appearance in six years ended in the regular season. Last season, Reggio Emilia reached the Eurocup Last 32 and kept its eighthfinals chances alive until the final game. Led by Pietro Aradori, Kaukenas and Amedeo Della Valle, the club went back to the Italian League finals before losing in six games against EA7 Emporio Armani Milan, and could not go past the Italian Cup quarterfinals. Reggio Emilia has consolidated its status as one of the best teams in Italy and now wants to confirm that domestic success in the 2016-17 Eurocup.
