HistoryEdit

The first basketball club in Jonava known as "Statyba" was founded in 1969. In 1980, a furniture enterprise started sponsoring the team. At the end of the season, BC Jonava won the Lithuanian second-tier league basketball championship. A decade later, the historic Jonava basketball club ceased to exist, and was replaced by the sports club "Triobet" in 1999.[1]
