The Game 4 win ensured Oostende clinch the title via a 3-1 series win and bag the team’s 11th title in a row and 22nd title overall in the history of the competition.

Former Indiana Pacers man Brimah, registered eight points, a rebound, two blocked shots and an assist in the win as Phil Booth led all players with 26 points.

Brimah joined Oostende a few weeks after the start of the season and anchored the team’s defense while averaging 2.3 blocks, 5.3 rebounds and 8.4 points in 17.9 minutes across 20 games in all competitions and missed two months of game time dealing with the foot injury.

The Belgian title is Amida’s second title win in his professional career after winning the 2018 NBA Gatorade League title with Austin Spurs. Brimah missed out on winning the Puerto Rican league title with his side-Mets de Guaynabo- losing to Capitanes de Arecibo in the Finals.
