In 1994, two years after losing the final game against Partizan in Istanbul on a buzzer-beater, the "Golden Generation" of Joventut Badalona managed to take the title. The previous summer, "Penya" had signed the very coach of the same Partizan that took the 1992 title from its hands, Zeljko Obradovic. But during group play, Joventut didn't have a very good season, finishing third at 9-5, but in the elimination rounds was able to eliminate Real Madrid in a 2-0 quarterfinals sweep for a ticket to the Final Four in Tel Aviv. In Israel, three more teams would be waiting: Barcelona which had risen from fourth to take group leader Efes Pilsen, a newcomer to that stage, in the quarters; Olympiakos, who downed Virtus Bologna 2-1; and another newcomer in the elite, Panathinauikos of Greece, who defeated defending champs Limoges in quarters by 2-1 as well. In the first semifinal, a Catalan duel, Joventut destroyed Barcelona's zone defense thanks to a rain of threes by Jordi Villacampa and Tomas Jofresa. In the Greek semifinal, 32 points by Russian legend Aleksandar Volkov were not enough for Panathinaikos because Olympiakos had a big variet of scorers, including Zarko Paspalj (22), Roy Tarpley (21), Giorgos Sigalas (15) and Panagiotis Fassoulas (13). In the big final, a crucial triple by Corny Thompson, and great defense on the last possession for Olympiakos play gave Joventut its first title. At last, two years later than it expected, "Penya" could call itself champion.
