On 7 October 1977, Real Madrid was crowned champion for a second successive year.
Today marks the 45th anniversary of Real Madrid basketball team's second Intercontinental Cup triumph. On 7 October 1977, the Whites were mathematically crowned champions after downing Varese in the fourth match of a league that was contested in the Spanish capital. This success saw the madridistas successfully defend their crown, which proved to be the second of three straight triumphs in the competition between 1976 and 1978.

This tournament spelt a return to Intercontinental Cup action for Real Madrid a year after the team tasted glory in the competition in Buenos Aires. With Lolo Sainz once again at the helm, the Whites ended the tournament unbeaten after overcoming Brazil’s Francana (94-113); Maccabi Elite (105-97); Dragones de Tijuana (105-129); Mobilgirgi Varese, which was the decisive match-up (115-94);  and Providence Friars (103-90).
