Associazione Sportiva Junior Pallacanestro Casale Monferrato, also known for sponsorship reasons as Novipiù Casale Monferrato is an Italian professional basketball team based in Casale Monferrato, Piedmont. It plays in the second division Serie A2 as of the 2015-16 season.

History[edit]

Associazione Sportiva Junior Libertas Pallacanestro was founded in 1956 and took part in the regional Prima Divisione that same season. It reached the second division in less than ten years. Back in the fourth division Serie B2 in 2000-01, the club earned a promotion to the Serie B d'Eccellenza that season. Winning that league's cup in 2005, Junior was promoted to the second division LegaDue as well after beating Forlì in the playoff finals on 2 June 2005. The side would reach the promotion playoffs five times in the next six seasons, with two semifinal exits their best results until 2010-11 where they won the regular season before downing Reyer Venezia in the final to move up to the first division Serie A.[1] The club would be relegated after one season, finishing last in 2011-12.
