Guerino Vanoli Basket

Guerino Vanoli Basket, also known for sponsorship reasons as Vanoli Cremona, is a professional basketball team of the city of Cremona.[1] The team plays in Serie A, the top Italian basketball league. From 1999 to 2011 the society had the name of Gruppo Triboldi Basket. For past club sponsorship names, see the list below.

History

The beginnings and the promotion to Serie A

The U.S. Gruppo Triboldi Basket was founded in 1999 in Soresina by Secondo Triboldi. The team, with Simone Lottici as coach, soon reaches the Serie B d’Eccellenza, the third Italian series, and not having a suitable arena for this series, moves to the nearby indoor stadium in Cremona Cà de Somenzi, keeping the seat in Soresina. After five seasons in the third Italian series, in the 2005-06 season arrives the promotion in Legadue (after it has been touched in 2002-03 losing the final of the play-off against Montecatini) with Andrea Trinchieri on the bench, finishing first in the group A, and after winning the play-offs by beating in order Cento, Forlì and Osimo. The first year in Legadue, Gruppo Triboldi finishes the regular season in fourth place, being eliminated in the first round of the playoffs by Pavia. At the end of the season Trinchieri leaves the role of head coach and moved to Caserta, being replaced by Stefano Cioppi. After a fifth place in the following season and elimination in the semifinals of the playoffs by Caserta, the club achieved promotion to Serie A after finishing the 2008-2009 season in third place and winning the play-offs beating in order Pavia, Casale Monferrato and Sassari.

The Serie A debut

After the promotion to Serie A, some managers of the Juvi Cremona (which gives the Serie A Dilettanti’s title to Leonessa Brescia) enter in the company. Moreover, the seat is transferred from Soresina to Cremona. At the end of the first season in Serie A, ended with the 13th place in the standings, the General Manager Ario Costa and Vice President Matteo Bonetti leave the team to join the Leonessa Brescia in Serie A Dilettanti, the third Italian league, so the owner Secondo Triboldi decides to make General Manager Flavio Portaluppi, who had played in the team just two seasons before, after a year spent at Olimpia Milano. The coach for the 2010-11 season is Slovenian Tomo Mahorič.

The change of ownership and the following seasons in Serie A

At the end of the 2010-11 season, after the club achieved the 12th place, the President Secondo Triboldi resigns from his office and gives his titles away for free. In September, 2011 Aldo Vanoli becomes President of the team and calls it Guerino Vanoli Basket, in honor of his father.

For the 2011-12 season most of the previous year team is confirmed, included the coach Tomo Mahorič. In Cremona arrives among the others Jonathan Tabu, replacing E. J. Rowland, passed meanwhile to Unicaja Malaga and especially Von Wafer, a player from the NBA. The beginning of the season, however, is rather disappointing with four defeats and one victory, against the newly promoted Casale Monferrato in the first five matches. Because of these results after only a month Tomo Mahorič is fired and in its place arrives Attilio Caja, former coach of Cremona in the second half of the 2009-10 season. During the following months the team changes several pawns, with the addition of new players also because in the first days of December Von Wafer returns in NBA at the end of the lockout. The results, despite some good performances, remain erratic especially away and the team remains in the last positions of the standings. After the defeat against Casale Monferrato, which seemed to compromise the stay in Serie A, the trend of the season suddenly changes. Since the beginning of February the team, leaded by the latest arrived Jason Rich, wins nine of the last thirteen league games even against teams ranked high such as Virtus Bologna and Olimpia Milano. Thanks to these results, the team manages to avoid relegation with a few match in advance and finishes the season in 10th place, the best result in Serie A.

At the end of the season, although it sounded almost certain the disappearance of the company due to lack of funds needed to continue the activity, the team manages to stay alive thanks to new sponsors and regularly begins the 2012-13 season. Coach Attilio Caja is confirmed, while the General Manager Portaluppi goes back to Olimpia Milano. The season starts badly, with the team that occupies the last positions in the standings. Because of these results, on November 21, 2012 Caja is fired. The assistant coach Luigi Gresta takes his place and leads the team right up to the play-off zone, thanks to some victories against top teams, such as Sassari, Milano and the Italian champions in charge of Siena. Cremona ends the season in 11th place.
