In 1958, Real Madrid clinched the title by beating Layetano.
On the 24th of May 1958, Real Madrid's basketball team lifted the trophy as league champions, retaining the title they had won the year before. Real Madrid were mathematically assured of clinching top spot in the penultimate clash of the campaign when they beat Layetano in Barcelona 34-97.
 
The madridistas' record in that League season read 16 wins and 2 defeats, and the 32 points accrued meant they beat Joventut (29) at the head of the table. Led by Ignacio Pinedo, the squad's standout player was Alfonso Martínez, the competition's top scorer, and Johnny Báez, who had arrived the same season and would go on to become a club legend.
