47 years since the 16th Basketball Cup win


It’s 47 years today since Real Madrid won their 16th Spanish Basketball Cup. On 25 May 1974, our team overcame Joventut in a very close final played in Alicante. The Catalan side took the first half and had a two-point lead at the break (48-50). Pedro Ferrándiz’s players, however, turned the game around in the second half and capped the comeback with an 87-85 win.

The madridistas’ best performers were Brabender, with 20 points, Cristobal and Rullán, both with 12. Real Madrid won their fifth consecutive Cup to mark a perfect season in which they also won the European Cup and the Spanish League. Real Madrid currently top the Cup-winners list with 28 titles.
