The Ronchetti Cup was named in honour of the late Liliana Ronchetti, a legend of the women's game in Italy, where her senior career spanned 26 years.
Over the course of her career, Ronchetti represented Italy at six EuroBasket Women tournaments, eventually going on to wear the Azzurre singlet on 83 occasions.
At domestic level, Ronchetti played in Italy and Switzerland, achieving great success in both countries. With her first club, Societa Ginnastica Comense, the 1.71m guard won four consecutive Italian titles between 1950 and 1953.
It was her feats with Societa Ginnastica Comense for what Ronchetti is probably best remembered. Asides from winning four titles with the club, Ronchetti once socred 51 points in a game - an Italian women's record that is yet to be bettered.
Later, in Switzerland playing for Ri. Ri Mendrisio, Ronchetti won a further three titles, beginning in 1967 and ending in 1969.
Sadly, just one year after retirement in 1974, Ronchetti's life was taken by cancer.
In honour of her contribution to women's basketball, FIBA started a second European women's club tournament that carried Ronchetti's name.
In 2007, Ronchetti was inducted into the FIBA Hall of Fame.
The Ronchetti Cup was succeeded by EuroCup Women in 2003.
