Joel Freeland has become the first British player to win a Euroleague title after his CSKA Moscow side defeated Fenerbahce 101-96 in the Championship game in Berlin on Sunday.
Freeland only ended up playing 12 games this season due to injury, and was shut down for good at the end of April, but was still crowned a champion with the rest of the team.
The former Portland Trailblazers big man played the last three games of the regular season and then also played in the Top 16 until Round 12 against Brose Baskets Bamberg where he re-injured his shoulder. In his 12 appearances this season, Freeland averaged 6.8 points and 4.4 rebounds.
