Thanks to a basket by former team captain Luka Mitrovic, Crvena Zvezda beat Bayern Munich 70 – 68 to win the 2021 Magenta Sports Cup preseason tournament. The reigning ABA League champions were coming of a rout over Panathinaikos Athens.
Augustine Rubit (16 points, eight rebounds), DeShaun Thomas (12 points) and Darrun Hilliard (12 points) were Bayern’s top contributors.
Earlier, Panathinaikos won a double-overtime clash against Virtus Bologna thanks to a stunning performance and a couple of crunch-time shots by Ioannis Papapetrou.
Zenit st. Petersburg made short work of Greek club Lavrio 79 – 51. Sergey Karasev led all scorers with 11.
