Richard Solomon delivered one of the top highlights in Europe this season by throwing down a game-winning dunk at the buzzer of the French Leaders Cup semifinal of Dijon against Monaco.

With just 0.6 seconds left and the score tied 81 – 81, Solomon received an alley-oop pass from inbounds by Axel Julien to dunk the ball and send Dijon to the tournament’s title game with an 83 – 81 win.

Solomon finished with 15 points and six rebounds while Rasheed Sulaimon dropped a game-high 24 points.

Norris Cole led Monaco in scoring with 19 points, including the basket that tied it at 81 before Solomon’s game-winner.

Dijon will face ASVEL Villeurbanne in the Final. The latter advanced by routing Boulogne-Levallois 88 – 59 behind 15 points and six rebounds by Ismael Bako.
