Today marks 49 years since the Real Madrid basketball team won their 16th Copa de España. On 25 May 1974, our team beat Joventut in a hard-fought final in Alicante. The Catalan team took the first half, going into the half-time break with a two-point advantage (48-50). However, the players coached by Pedro Ferrándiz turned the game around in the second half, completing the comeback to win 87-85.

Brabender, with 20 points, alongside Cristóbal and Rullán, both with 12, were the top performers for the madridistas. The win saw our team get their hands on a fifth successive Copa to round of a perfect campaign in which they also won the European Cup and the League title.
