Forty-eight years have passed since Real Madrid claimed its 15th Copa de España basketball trophy. On 31 May 1973, Pedro Ferrándiz‘s troops were crowned champions after downing Estudiantes 126-87 at the La Salle de Paterna pavilion in Valencia. Real Madrid confirmed its dominance of Spanish basketball by winning its fourth consecutive league and cup double.

The team had the upper hand from the start in the final against Estudiantes and went into the half-time break with a 54-48 lead. Madrid’s scoring accelerated after the break driven by Luyk, who finished the game on 32 points, and Brabender (30). Ferrándiz‘s charges also recorded the highest points difference in a cup final (+39).
