Basket Croix Rousse Olympique Lyon is a French basketball club playing in 2016 at the Regional level male 2 Division. It is based in the city of Lyon.


CRO Lyon experienced in elite (National 1A) of the championship of France in the 1970s and the early 1990s but stopped its activities (budget problems in 1996) before returning to lower levels. The club return to the top flight was possible thanks to financial support from Roger Caille,[1] CEO of Jet Service, the club then called Dumb Lyon.
