AS Monaco made some noise last season in its 7DAYS EuroCup debut and carried that on to a competitive domestic run. Coach Filipovski charges made history with an opening-night road win at Germani Brescia Leonessa and reached the midway point of the regular season tied for the top spot in Group A. After beating Crvena Zvezda mts Belgrade in Round 7, Monaco moved into first place, which it protected and finished the first group stage atop the charts with a 7-3 record. Monaco scored back-to-back wins over Rytas Vilnius and Partizan NIS Belgrade in the Top 16 and went into the final round against Rytas for a do-or-die clash for a ticket to the quarterfinals. However, Monaco fell behind early and was handed its worst EuroCup loss, 90-68, to end its campaign. Monaco did not fare well in the French cups, but its 24-10 record placed the team second at the end of the French League regular season. Monaco then swept Limoges CSP and JDA Dijon in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively, before squaring off against LDLC ASVEL Villeurbanne in the best-of-five finals. The series went the distance, but ASVEL used its home-court advantage to take Game 5. Nonetheless, Monaco proved that it is a force to be reckoned with in French and European basketball.
