Following that, the coach presided over wins in 2010/11 over Bilbao Basket (3-0), in 2011/12, Real Madrid (3-2) and last season, again over Bilbao (3-1).Xavi Pascual’s teams are always competitive and since he arrived at the Club, his teams have never failed to reach the Lliga Endesa finals.
Aíto García Reneses still holds the record as the coach with most games in charge at the Club, with 568 matches in his 14 years at the helm.
