Club info

Union Olimpija entered its third consecutive Eurocup season with Sasa Zagorac and Zach Wright as its new leaders. Things started well for the Slovenian powerhouse, as it beat Dolomiti Energia Trento 98-97 behind 18 points from Wright. Olimpija went on to win just one of its next five regular season games, but bounced back to beat JSF Nanterre, Telekom Baskets Bonn and EWE Baskets Oldenburg - the last two on the road - to make it to the Last 32 for the third straight year. However Olimpija collected four consecutive losses in the Last 32, and when it recorded a prestigious home win against Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv, it proved to be too little, too late.

History

Union Olimpija Ljubljana returns to the Eurocup for the fourth consecutive season, hoping to get back to its glory days A winner of 15 Slovenian League and 19 Slovenian Cup titles, Olimpija comes off back-to-back title-free seasons. The club traces its history back to 1946 and adopted the name Olimpija in 1954. It was an early power in the Yugoslav League with the great Ivo Daneu leading the team to six domestic titles between 1957 and 1970. Slovenia's independence started a new era of success that saw Olimpija conquer league and cup trophies for 10 consecutive years. Olimpija also won the Saporta Cup in 1994 by beating Tau Vitoria 91-81 in the title game, and Arriel McDonald and Marko Milic helped the club to the 1997 Euroleague Final Four before losing to eventual champion Olympiacos Piraeus. Over the years, Olimpija had a streak of 17 straight Euroleague appearances, among which it fell one win short of the 2003 Euroleague Final Four. It also won the inaugural Adriatic League in 2002, all while managing to land and develop young, promising players who have gone on to become stars, including Sani Becirovic, Sarunas Jasikevicius, Rasho Nesterovic and Jiri Welsch. Olimpija won the Slovenian League in 2009, and in 2010-11 got back to the Euroleague Top 16 and reached the Adriatic League finals before losing to Partizan Belgrade. The team brought its sixth straight Slovenian Cup home in 2013, but otherwise the last few seasons have not been as productive. The 2014-15 season started with promise after four wins in five Eurocup games, but it registered only three wins the rest of the way and made its exit in the Last 32. Olimpija also missed out on the Adriatic League playoffs and was ousted early in both the Slovenian Cup and Slovenian League playoffs. Last season, Olimpija returned to the Eurocup Last 32, but did not add any new titles as it lost to Zlatorog Lasko in the Slovenian League semifinals. Nevertheless, this proud club is ready to get back on track as it attempts to climb back to prominence.
