Club info

UNICS Kazan comes off a strong 2018-19 season, in which the team was very competitive on all fronts. UNICS had a near-perfect 7DAYS EuroCup Regular Season and finished first in its group with a 9-1 record. The club went on to rank first in its Top 16 group, too, only losing on the road against Morabanc Andorra for a 5-1 record. UNICS had the home-court advantage in its quarterfinal series against Lokomotiv Kuban Krasnodar and made the most out of it, winning Game 1 by 20 points, 86-66, and registering a 69-65 victory in Game 3 to advance to the semifinals. Eventual champion Valencia Basket stood in its way to further success, sweeping UNICS with two narrow wins - 69-64 in Spain, 73-79 in Kazan. Errick McCollum was chosen to the All-EuroCup First Team and Pierria Henry earned Regular Season MVP and All-EuroCup Second Team honors. UNICS did well in the VTB United League regular season, beating mighty CSKA Moscow twice and ranking second with a 21-5 record. UNICS swept Kalev Cramo in the quarterfinals, but fell at the hands of Khimki Moscow Region in the semifinals. UNICS won Game 1, 96-91, but Khimki, led by Alexey Shved, won the next three games to qualify to the finals.

History

In just over a quarter-century of existence, UNICS Kazan has firmly entrenched itself as a European power. Founded in 1991, UNICS became the perfect ambassador for the sports-crazy Republic of Tatarstan in the Russian Federation. The club reached the Russian League finals in 2001 and 2002, the year in which it also made it to the Saporta Cup semifinals. Its hard work paid off in 2003 when UNICS edged CSKA Moscow in overtime to lift the Russian Cup. In 2004, Kazan was home to the FIBA Europe League final four and UNICS made the most of it by downing Maroussi to win its first continental title. UNICS made its ULEB Cup debut in the 2005-06 season and reached the semifinals the following year before losing against Real Madrid. UNICS also reached the 2008 ULEB Cup Final Eight. Everything clicked in the 2010-11 EuroCup as UNICS thrashed Cedevita Zagreb in the semifinals and bested Cajasol Sevilla in the championship game to take the crown. Marko Popovic amassed 18 points and 11 assists to earn Finals MVP honors. UNICS made its EuroLeague debut a successful one in the 2011-12 campaign by going all the way to the playoffs and returned to the EuroCup a year later, but lost to Valencia in the quarterfinals and finished that season with a 10-4 record. The team made up for that early exit the next season; UNICS reached the EuroCup Finals sporting a 20-2 record, which helped Andrew Goudelock earn EuroCup MVP honors and Andrea Trinchieri to be chosen as the EuroCup Coach of the Year. However, Valencia again stopped UNICS's march to the title. UNICS bounced back by lifting the Russian Cup trophy and reaching the VTB United League semifinals. The 2014-15 season saw UNICS back in the EuroLeague. After it narrowly missed reaching the Top 16 despite a historic win over eventual champ Real Madrid in the Spanish capital, Keith Langford and co. made another deep EuroCup run and reached the semifinals, though a Spanish side was again its kryptonite; Herbalife Gran Canaria swept their two-game series. UNICS made it to the VTB League finals in the 2015-16 season, which allowed the club to return to the EuroLeague. UNICS missed the EuroLeague Playoffs in the 2016-17 season, but Langford managed to claim his second Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy. In the last two campaigns, UNICS made it to the VTB League semifinals and the EuroCup playoffs twice, advancing to the semifinals last season. Quino Colom earned 2017-18 All-EuroCup First Team honors, Errick McCollum made it to the 2018-19 All-EuroCup First Team and Pierria Henry was the 2018-19 Regular Season MVP. Back in the 7DAYS EuroCup for 2019-20, expect UNICS to be a top contender to lift the trophy.
