Obradoiro Clube de Amigos do Baloncesto[1] (lit, Obradoiro Friends of Basketball Club), also known as Río Natura Monbús for sponsorship reasons, is a professional basketball team based in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia. They currently compete in the ACB League.

History[edit]

Obradoiro in 2012.

2009–10 was its returning season to the Spanish top division, Liga ACB, after the Supreme Court conceded that the Júver Murcia committed improper alignment in a matchup in the 1990 promotion playoff. A horrible second half of the league, with only one win in 17 matches, caused the relegation to LEB Oro, the second division of Spanish basketball.

In the next season, Obradoiro came back to Liga ACB as runner-up of the 2010–11 LEB Oro season and also won its first national title: the Copa Príncipe de Asturias.

The 2012–13 ACB season was the best one in the history of the club. Obradoiro CAB finished the regular season in the eight position and joined the playoffs, where it was eliminated in the quarterfinals by the champion Real Madrid.
