The Romanian club is off to a great start in its second BKT EuroCup season and maybe can even start dreaming about the EuroLeague.
U-BT Cluj-Napoca can be the next big thing
While everyone is focused on traditional powers or the up-and-comers from London and Paris, there's another EuroCup team that is steadily improving and proving that it can be a factor in the European basketball landscape.
While you were not watching, U-BT Cluj-Napoca has a 5-1 record - including a pair of road wins - and everything in place to take the next step.
Not bad for a team that made its EuroCup debut last season and remains pretty much an unknown quantity in European basketball. However, if you look closer, it's easy to understand why this is happening and why Cluj-Napoca is here to stay.
