WTK Anwil Wloclawek returns to the Eurocup for the fourth time in six years ready to confirm the rise of Polish basketball in European club competitions. Founded in 1990, Anwil started in the Polish third division and started one of the fastest rises in European basketball. In 1993, Anwil not only had made it to the top division, but even advanced to the Polish League finals, losing against Slask Wroclaw. In 1994, Anwil returned to the Polish finals and made its European competitions debut in the Saporta Cup. Anwil, led by Griszczuk, did not return to the Polish League finals in a while, but became a regular team in European competitions, reaching the group stage in the 1995 and 1996 Saporta Cup while beating teams like Zalgiris, Union Olimpija or Fenerbahce. Anwil won back-to-back Polish Cup titles in 1995 and 1996 to confirm its status as a top team in its country. Anwil reached the 1999 Polish League finals for the first time in three consecutive seasons but once again Slask stood in the way to success, downing Anwil each and every time. In Europe, Anwil reached high in the 2000 Korac Cup, as Raimonds Miglieniks and Tomasz Jankowski helped the team to make it to the quarterfinals, losing against Estudiantes. Jeff Nordgaard, Matt Santangelo and Ed O'Bannon made Anwil reach the 2002 Saporta Cup semifinals but the club lacked a major success. It all changed in 2003, when Anwil conquered its only Polish League title behind Nordgaard, Damir Krupalija or Kris Lang. Anwil, again, made it to the 2005 and 2006 Polish League finals, but a new powerhouse, Prokom Trefl Sopot, stood on its way to success. Anwil reached the Eurocup in three consecutive seasons from 2006 to 2008 but failed to survive the regular season. The club won its first Polish League title in 2007, downing Prokom 72-66 in the final. Anwil made it to its ninth Polish League final in 2010 but could not overcome Prokom in the title series. Anwil is back to the Eurocup ready to make some noise against anyone, anywhere.
