Former Cincinnati Bearcat Sean Kilpatrick and Panathinaikos BC captured the Greek League Championship.
The Greens beat the visiting Promitheas Patras 111-77 to sweep the best-of-five finals series and become Greek champion for the third consecutive season, and 38th overall.
SK's team was coached by Hall of Famer coach Rick Pitino.
Pitino signed with Panathinaikos in December. He led the team to the EuroLeague playoffs after a major turnaround in the second leg of the regular season and then to win the Greek Cup and League title.
