The Basket Rimini Crabs are a Italian basketball team from the city of Rimini.

Basket Rimini was established in 1947 as Polisportiva Libertas. In 1978-79 season, it played for the first time in a professional league (Serie A2, the second-highest Italian level).

The team made its debut in Serie A1 (the highest level in Italy) in 1984, playing in that league for 8 seasons from 1984 and 2001. Its best result was 8th place in Serie A1 in the 1985/86 season. The club qualified twice, in the 1998/99 and 1999/00 seasons, for the Korać Cup, a continental competition.

After 2001 it played in the Italian Legadue ("League Two", the former Serie A2) with additional nickname of the Crabs, but in 2011 the team was unable to register to participate in the championship due to debts, so they restarted from DNB (4th national level).

Some of its youth teams won the title of national champions in the 1980's and '90's. Also, Carlton Myers, one of the best Italian basketball players, began his career in Basket Rimini, as did Alex Righetti and many others.
