Strasbourg Illkirch-Graffenstaden Basket, most commonly known as SIG Basket or SIG Strasbourg, is a French professional basketball club that is based in Strasbourg. The club, founded in 1929, competes domestically in the French Pro A League, and internationally in the Basketball Champions League; the club's home games are played at Rhénus Sport. The players wear white and red uniforms.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1929, and reached the top-tier of French basketball for the first time in 1938.

Starting from the 2004–05 season, new head coach Éric Girard took over the team. In the regular season, SIG finished 3rd and Giard was named Coach of the Year. Strasbourg won the top-tier French League for the first time in the 2004–05 season. SIG beat its rival SLUC Nancy 72–68.

In the 2005–06 season, Strasbourg played in the EuroLeague; the team had some outstanding results, as they beat top tier team Saski Baskonia. In the Pro A, the team was defeated by Nancy 1–2 in the Semi-finals.

In the 2006–07 season, the team wouldn't reach further than the Quarter-finals. After some down years, the team started to revived when Vincent Collet took over as head coach in 2012; the team reached the Pro A Finals for three straight years in 2013, 2014, 2015. Along with that, the team won the 2015 Leaders Cup and 2014–15 French Basketball Cup. Important players for the team were Antoine Diot and Louis Campbell, who won MVP Awards in the won competitions.
