Coached by Euroleague Legend Vassilis Spanoulis, the U18 Next Generation Select Team wrapped up the group stage of the Euroleague Basketball Adidas Next Generation Tournament Finals by edging U18 Crvena Zvezda mts, 63-60, Friday.
Much like the play-caller of his team did multiple times during his playing career, Mohamed Diawara decided the winner by tucking in a three-pointer at the buzzer.
