UNIQA Euroleasing Sopron won their eight championship title in club history without a single defeat throughout the entire season and just to reinforce their superiority in Hungary they repeated the same feat to win the cup too.

Last season we enjoyed a real thriller in the finals as HAT-AGRO UNI Gyor were able to turn around a 0-2 deficit to clinch the first league title in a championship dominated by Sopron in recent years:

Finals in the last 11 seasons
Season Matchup Result
2012-13 Sopron-Gyor 3-0
2011-12 Gyor-Sopron 3-2
2010-11 Sopron-Pecs 3-2
2009-10 Pecs-Sopron 3-0
2008-09 Sopron-Szeged 3-1
2007-08 Sopron-Pecs 3-1
2006-07 Sopron-Pecs 3-2
2005-06 Pecs-Sopron 3-0
2004-05 Pecs-Sopron 3-0
2003-04 Pecs-Szolnok 3-1
2002-03 Pecs-Sopron 3-0

All the fans expecting another close encounter between the two prestigious clubs had to be disappointed. However, all the signs were predicting an easy victory for Sopron from the very beginning. We still have to ask ourselves the question: what was the reason behind Gyor's below par performance in the final? (Recall that they were limited to around 50 points in all 3 games in the series...)

2012-13 Finals
Date Stage Matchup Result
04/15/2013 Game 1 UNIQUA Euroleasing Sopron HAT-AGRO UNI Gyor 74:55
04/18/2013 Game 2 HAT-AGRO UNI Gyor UNIQUA Euroleasing Sopron 53:70
04/22/2013 Game 3 UNIQUA Euroleasing Sopron HAT-AGRO UNI Gyor 72:44

Last seasons dramatic (and probably unexpected) victory not only brought the first title for Gyor but also extra financial commitments towards their players in championship bonuses. That was most likely a happy burden for the management but still a burden and the club were constantly looking for new benefactors after losing some of their major sponsors. It all ended up in the crisis at the beginning of the New Year when the club was one day behind with payments and two of their foreign centers, Chay Shegog (196-C-90, college: N.Carolina) and Ieva Kublina (193-C-82, college: Virginia Tech), immediately cancelled their contracts (both of them found new employers in France and Turkey very soon). They were shortly followed by the same decision from team-captain Nora Nagy-Bujdoso (185-F-85, agency: Laszlo Vinko Group) just after a glorious victory against Rivas Ecopolis in the Euroleague. This development clearly shocked the management as they lost an important player who had (officially) no financial claims against the club (she signed for PEAC on the very next day. The international basketball federation (FIBA) decided to impose a transfer ban on Gyor in the light of recent events which was lifted shortly. Nevertheless the club lost all their key players in the paint area and although they reached the best-of-8 in the Euroleague for the first time in their history, Gyor had to sign new players and restructure their squad for the rest of the season.
Gyor had never really any chance against Fenerbahce Spor Kulubu to reach the Final Four but with the addition of the new players Cindy Lima (196-C-81, agency: Josep and Nicolas) and Tangela Smith (193-F/C-77, agency: Josep and Nicolas, college: Iowa) they fought on and claimed a spot in the cup finals where they lost to Sopron.

Meanwhile they had to come to terms with the injury of Zsofia Simon (180-G-89, agency: Laszlo Vinko Group) Zsofia who injured his shoulder and was unable to play anymore games at least until summer.
I feel that we can safely say that Gyor managed to recover very well from their serious losses mid-season but they were just too tired and lacked the quality against a superior Sopron. The club still have to find the financial means to mount a challenge and potentially win their second title next season but the coach can build his team around the young and talented Krisztina Raksanyi (181-G-91)-Rita Rasheed (182-F-89, agency: Laszlo Vinko Group)-Zsofia Simon-Anna Lakloth (181-G-88)-Gyorgyi Ori (184-G/F-90, agency: Laszlo Vinko Group) tandem. All-in-all Gyor had a successful season with two silver medals and despite of all their troubles were only inferior to the No 1 Hungarian team.
As for Sopron, the club has a solid financial background which is fundamental for an organization aiming to compete on the highest level but unfortunately not a common trend in Hungarian basketball. However, the future is not so certain. The management and the coaching staff have to work hard once the celebration is over and the dust settled to strengthen the squad as two of their (and probably the entire leagues) best players Jelena Milovanovic (190-F-89) and Shenise Johnson (180-G-90, college: Miami, FL) are not going to wear the yellow-green jersey from next season...They had the luxury however to give their young players valuable playoff experience as Gyor never had the lead against them for a single moment (!) in the final series but Zsofia Fegyverneky (182-G-84, agency: Laszlo Vinko Group), Milovanovic,Johnson and Sara Krnjic (196-C-91) have been clearly outstanding for Sopron for the entire campaign.

Both clubs are facing one last challenge before the season concludes: the Middle European League Final Four on the 3rd (semifinals) and 4th (final and bronze match) of May in Kosice.

A Division Round 4: Sopron Basket lose to UNI Gyor - 2 days ago
After 4 rounds played we can already see who rules in the A Division and who belongs to weaker ones.

It ended at the same time the three-game winning streak of Sopron Basket. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts trailed by 9 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 1 point. Worth to ment...   [read more]
