In most places, one can find that the European champs in 1991 were called Pop 84, but that was just the name of the sponsor under which the talented players of Jugoplastika were playing that season. Despite being without Dino Radja and Dusko Ivanovic, the team from Split was led by a great Toni Kukoc and a genius-like Zoran Savic to their third consecutive title. Since the times when ASK Riga of Russia won European titles between 1958 and 1960, no other team had won three in a row. And in the Final Four era, no team besides Jugoplastika has been able to win even two consecutively. In 1991, the the competition provided some big surprises leading up to Paris. Kingston of England eliminated CSKA Moscow, and what's more, with a double victory, 93-77 at home and 72-74 in Moscow. Bayer Leverkusen of Germany made its debut in the third round, but the other faces were well-known to everyone: Barcelona ended first in that phase (11-3), Pop 84 was second (9-5), and the other two Final Four teams would be Scavolini and Maccabi, tied at 8-6. Once again, the first team of the previous round didn't get the title. In a rematch of the previous year's final - another occurrence that has not been repeated since - the team from Split won 70-65, almost identical to the 1990 score (72-67). Thanks to a great performance by Savic, who scored 27 points, Jugoplastika had an historic three-peat.
