JuveCaserta Basket (sometimes spelled Juve Caserta Basket), also known as Pasta Reggia Caserta after its title sponsor, is an Italian professional basketball team based in Caserta, Campania.

For past club sponsorship names, see sponsorship names.

History[edit]

JuveCaserta was founded by a group of local enthusiasts in 1951.[1] The name Sporting Club Juventus was chosen by Santino Piccolo, a fan of the homonymous Turin football team. The team started playing on the clay courts of the Liceo Classico Pietro Giannone.

The side played in the 1985-86 and 1986-87 finals of the first division Serie A before finally winning the competition in 1990-91, the first team from the south of Italy to do so. They had earlier won the Italian Cup in 1988 and reached the European Cup Winners' Cup final in 1989.

Following the 1997-98 season, the club went bankrupt. In 2004, two lower-level Caserta-based teams merged under the name of JuveCaserta. That side returned to the Serie A in 2008 after winning the LegaDue promotion playoffs.

Finishing in second-place in the league during the 2009-10 season, Caserta reached the playoff semi-finals but lost the series against Olimpia Milano 2-3. The next season saw the side lose in the Euroleague first qualifying round to Russian team Khimki, playing instead in the Eurocup where they reached the quarterfinals where they narrowly lost to UNICS Kazan.
