El Barça Regal celebrant la Lliga 2010-2011

The basketball section has ended another year of triumph. The team led by Xavi Pascual continue to dominate the ACB scene as they showed by winning the League and the Spanish Cup. It seems the winning Barça cycle has no end: they have 2 titles already this season. Also, at the end of 2011, they are co-leaders of the ACB and top their group in the Euroleague.

A golden double

After the disappointment at the end of the previous season, Barça Regal gave their rivals in the ACB very little options. They won the regular phase with 27 victories and 7 defeats and then won all the play-off games, becoming Champions in Bilbao. Equally impeccable was the Barça trajectory in the Spanish Cup, played in Madrid. Barça Regal beat Joventut, Caja Laboral, and Madrid, in the Final, to retain the title.

Their only disappointment was in the Euroleague, where Panathinaikos stopped them reaching the Final Four.

Continue the winning streak

Charismatic players like Grimau, Lakovic, Basile, and Ricky, left the team in the Summer. In their places other stars have arrived like Marcelinho, Eison, Rabasseda, and Wallace, who have made good starts to their careers with Barça. They already have the Catalan League and Super Cup in the bag. In the second part of the season they’ll start their assault on the Cup, the Euroleague, and the League, in great shape.
