May 15, 2016

BERLIN (AP) CSKA Moscow won its seventh Euroleague title by beating Fenerbahce 101-96 in overtime on Sunday despite blowing a big lead.

CSKA led by 21 in the third quarter but Fenerbahce caught up and could have won in regulation.

Moscow is now second on the all-time list, behind Real Madrid with nine titles.

Guards Nando de Colo and Milos Teodosic paced CSKA with 22 and 19 points each, respectively.


Fenerbahce was seeking to become the first Turkish club to win the top European club competition. Fenerbahce's coach Zeljko Obradovic has a record eight titles with four different teams but fell short against his former assistant Dimitrios Itoudis, with whom he won five championships while they were both at Panathinaikos.
