Etoile Sportive Radesienne have won the Tunisian Basketball League after ending the finals series with two wins in three games against US Monastir.
Etoile won the decisive Game 3 91-68 with a big performance after falling 62-72 to Monastir in Game 2 a few days back in the series.
Guard Omar Abada and Power Forward Mohammed Hadidane recorded 25 points and 22 points respectively in the contest; Hadidane added 11 rebounds.
Both teams are expected to compete in the Africa Club Championship later in the year; Rades and Monsatir placed second and third respectively in the 2017 edition.
Ivorian International and former Accra Basketball League player Romeo Enan and his JS Manazeh side missed out on playing in the finals.
Manazeh managed to qualify to the playoffs but exited at the preliminary stage at the hands of Etoile Sportive La Goulette. Enan played for perennial league champions Braves of Customs in Ghana.
He was named Tertiary Player of the Year at the 2015 Ghana Basketball Awards before playing for Kano Pillars and Kwara Falcons in Nigeria prior to his move to North Africa.
He featured for the Ivorian National Team at the 2017 African Championship.
