Flamengo crushed the Austin Spurs (90-58) and qualified to the Final of the 2019 FIBA Intercontinental Cup, where they will face AEK Athens.

The Brazilian club took control from the opening tip and never looked back. They quickly earned a double-digit lead and retained it until the end of the game to seal the deal.

Franco Balbi led the winners with a game-high 19 points, whereas Josh Huestis had 10 points for the losing squad, which failed to remain competitive in the semi-final.

Flamengo advanced to the Final and will face the 2018 Basketball League champions, AEK Athens, on Sunday (17/02). The match will take place at the Carioca Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
