Billy Baron scored the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to hand Crvena Zvezda an 80 – 79 win over Mega Bemax in the first of the two Serbian Radivoj Korac Cup semifinals.

Baron took the ball with 15 seconds left and outplayed his personal opponent to pull off a difficult jumper from beyond the arc. Thanks to his basket, Red Star advanced to the title game for the third season in a row. The team will look to win the title for the first time after 2017 in the championship game against either Partizan Belgrade or FMP Sunday (16/2).

While Baron finished with 18 points, Kevin Punter scored a team-high 22 points. Vladimir Stimac had 10 points.
