Minas Tênis Clube is the men's professional basketball branch from Minas Tênis Clube, a multisports club from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and a team from Novo Basquete Brasil, the Brazilian basketball league.[1] Currently it plays under the name Decisão Engenharia/Minas.


Minas was one of the top teams in the first years of Novo Basquete Brasil, reaching the semifinal series two straight years. In both semifinals, the team, led by the center Murilo Becker and the point guard Facundo Sucatzky, was defeated by Brasília. In the 2009–10 NBB season, Minas showed the point guard Raul Togni Neto, better known as Raulzinho. Neto was chosen the NBB Revelation Player and then moved to the Spanish team Lagun Aro. In the 2011–12 NBB season, Minas made a very bad campaign, finishing in thirteenth place and getting out of the playoffs. For the following season the managers made a great renovation of the cast, hiring young players.
