Dinamo Basket Sassari, currently known as Dinamo Banco di Sardegna Sassari for sponsorship reasons, is an Italian professional basketball club based in Sassari, Sardinia. The club plays in the Italian LBA, the highest level club competition in Italian professional basketball.
Dinamo was founded in 1960 and, in the past, due to sponsorship deals, has also been known as Banco Popolare Sassari (1989–90). The club plays in the Serie A (the highest level for the men's basketball competitions in Italy) since 2010.
Dinamo Sassari is notable to be the club in the Italian professional basketball to have made the impressive 158 points scoring in a single game (no overtimes), during the 1994–95 Serie A2 regular season vs Pallacanestro Pavia (91), the highest ever made by any club in Italy.
In 1994–95 the Dinamo team scored 158 points in a regular season game without overtimes against Pavia.
In 2012 the club made its debut in Europe, when it played in the Eurocup regular season. The 2013–14 season was one of the most historic ever for the club. Banco di Sardegna Sassari won the Italian Cup, the team's first trophy. Dinamo's star player Travis Diener was named cup MVP. Later in the season Drake Diener – Travis' cousin – was named Italian League MVP. Dinamo also played in the Eurocup once again, and reached the eight-finals this time around.
Despite the third place and elimination in the Italian League semifinals in 2014, Dinamo was invited to play in the 2014–15 Euroleague season. After Montepaschi Siena, runner-up in the Italian league, resigned the club received a B license.
