KK Bosna (Košarkaški klub Bosna) is a basketball club in Sarajevo the capital of Bosnia. The club is part of the University Sport Society USD Bosna (Bosnian: Univerzitetsko sportsko društvo Bosna). Currently, KK Bosna competes in the National Championship of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and National Cup of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
KK Bosna became the first club, aside of CSKA Moscow, to win European Champions Cup without foreign players on its roster. On April 5, 1979 in the final KK Bosna, led by late Mirza Delibašić and MVP of the game Žarko Varajić, beat Italian champion Emerson Varèse 96:93. Let's remind that Emerson has dominated Europe during '70s. KK Bosna had won the Yugoslavian League and Cup in 1978 and managed to keep its main players: center Ratko Radovanović, Žarko Varajić and above all, Mirza Delibašić, a Hall of Famer. Tall, gifted, smart and versatile, Delibašić was not only an outstanding shooter, but had an incredible court vision that allowed him to change any game with his creativity. KK Bosna started its Euroleague season in the Quarterfinals Group Stage, finishing first in its group. Once in the semifinals group stage, KK Bosna sent a message right away by edging defending champion Real Madrid 114-109 in overtime in Sarajevo. Bosna would eventually win all its home games and would advance to the title game by edging Olympiacos 83-88 in Piraeus. The second finalist would be either Emerson Varese or Real Madrid, who faced each other in the final game in that round. Varese beat Madrid 82-83. That game will be remembered by Prada's missed free throws. Luis Maria Prada famously missed 3 free throws with no time on the clock that could have changed history. Once in the title game, KK Bosna downed mighty Emerson Varese 96-93 in front of 15,000 fans in Palais des Sports in Grenoble, France. Delibašić led his team scoring 30 points in the process, Žarko Varajić scored 45 points, still biggest score in a history of euroleague finals in his a career-best performance, while Radovanović added 10 points. Americans Bob Morse and Charlie Yelverton scored 30 and 27 points respectively for Varese. KK Bosna had won the Euroleague title with no foreign player on its roster.
The club has gathered all players, coach Tanjević, assistant coaches Prodanović, Krehić, first club's coach Halilović and all Club members who helped Bosna achieve a great success such is winning a European title. Unfortunatelly, two key members of Bosna championship team are not among us anymore. Mirza Delibašić and Sabahudin Bilalović have past away, but they will be remembered by all Bosna fans forever. Many great players and coaches from the region joined the gathering in memory to one great generation of Bosna players and their accomplishment.
The biggest achievement of club was in 1979 when Bosna won the European Champions Cup.
