Another ACB league title comes to Barcelona

Carles Cascante

It was hard work but in the end it was worth it. Regal Barça has won the ACB league 5 seasons after the Club’s last success in the 2003/04 season. And to make victory even sweeter, Pascual’s men achieved it in the Palau, for the 3rd time in 20 years.

Over the last 20 years, Barça has won 15 ACB titles (9 leagues, 5 Kings Cups and one Super Cup). Of these only 3 – the league titles of 2008/09, 2003/04 and 1994/95 – have been clinched by FC Barcelona in the Palau Blaugrana.

The last one - against Estudiantes

celebracix_pista4.jpgFive years have passed since Barça last had the opportunity of winning the ACB league title in front of their own fans. The only surviving member of that team is Juan Carlos Navarro. It was in the 2003/04 season and Barça reached the fifth and final game against an Estudiantes team full of promising and talented young players, such as Carlos Jiménez and Felipe Reyes. That game finished with a narrow 69-64 victory for Barça.

Andalusia, the promised land

Interestingly enough, FC Barcelona has had more basketball success in Andalusia than anywhere else. Over the last two decades, Barça has won three titles in Seville (Kings Cup 1994/95, ACB league 1995/96, ACB league 1998/99) and another three in Malaga (Kings Cup 2000/01, ACB Super Cup 2004/05, Kings Cup 2006/07).

Unicaja and Epi
Unicaja Malaga and Juan Antonio San Epifanio, ‘Epi’ were the stars of the last league title won in the Palau Blaugrana. It was in the1994/95 season and the final series against Malaga went to the full 5 games. It was Epi’s farewell to professional basketball and his lap of honour on the shoulders of the American Mike Peplowski will long remain in the fans’ memories. The game ended in a 73-64 victory for Barça.
