Tare: TTT Riga On Right Track

TTT Riga dominated European basketball for two decades, winning 18 European Cup for Women's Champion Clubs titles (as Daugawa Riga) between 1960 and 1982, including 12 straight from 1964 to 1975.

The Latvian club, led by Uljana Semjonova, also clinched 21 Soviet titles between 1960 and 1984. But TTT Riga have done little internationally since the 1980s, reaching the 2002 Ronchetti Cup and then appearing in the 2007 EuroCup Women, where the team went 0-6.
