History[edit]

The club was founded in 1945 immediately after the liberation of Yugoslavia in World War II, the same as its male counterpart KK Sloboda Dita.

The club was amateur since its inception, in the early 1970s. The club played in the second Yugoslav Basketball League, with mediocre results until season 1979/1980, when they were promoted to the first Yugoslavian Basketball League. However, they were relegated the following year. The club got back into the first league in season 1982/1983, where they finished in eighth position and were secure from relegation.

The club kept growing and getting better and better results, until winning the title in season 1986/1987.

In season 1987/1988 Jedinstvo played in Europe for the first time. They beat Arama Ankara in the Qualification round, and after that they beat Universitatea Cluj in First round, and got into Group, where they finished third. In home competition they weren't dominant as year before but they managed to secure title in Play Offs after third game.

In the season that followed in 1987/1989, Jedinstvo was once again representative of Yugoslavia in Euroleague and they won competition over Vicenza, but they failed to clinch the domestic title after finishing regular part of season as first.

In season 1989/1990, Jedinstvo won its last Yugoslavia title, and finished second placed in Ronchetti Cup.

In season 1990/1991 the team played in Euroleague, and they finished fifth in Yugoslav League short of two games. Which was last Yugoslavian Basketball season.
