The Lugano Snakes have emerged victorious in the Swiss first division basketball finals for a second year running after their third win in a row over rivals Olympique Lausanne.
Victory for Lugano, one of the most dominant sides in Swiss basketball, was widely expected, but Lausanne still fought a tough match, forcing their opponents into extra time after the score remained level 87-87 at the end of the final quarter.
Lugano showed why they deserved to win only in the dying minutes of the match when they took the lead and went on to win by 104 points to 99.
Lugano's star international player, Harold Mrazek, put in the most impressive performance of the day, notching up 31 points for his team.
Saturday's victory means the Ticinese side have now completed a 3-0 whitewash in the best-of-five final series for the second consecutive year.
