In their most recent win to claim the Bulgarian League title Lukoil Academik defeated Levski Sofia 86-81 in a decisive fifth game. While their victory did not come easy, Levski was only a recent challenger to their dominance.  Come next season, they will have the opportunity to play in a competitive arena where their skills and talents will be put to the test. Lukoil Academik can challenge strong Russian teams such as CSKA Moscow and Khimky Moscow among others.
