History[edit]

Liliana Ronchetti and European basketball[edit]

Liliana Ronchetti started playing basketball in Como, Italy at the age of 20 and then she got a wonderful career in Palermo until she got 45. Ronchetti, or Lily as she was called by her team mates, won 4 consecutive national titles with Como in the 1950s and played 83 games for the Italian national team.

One year after she quit basketball Lily died of cancer. Her name has persisted through the European Cup Liliana Ronchetti (renamed in 1996 more simply Ronchetti Cup). This competition was created by FIBA in 1974 as the second European competition for women’s clubs.
