CSKA Moscow big man Kyle Hines made history on Sunday night (19/05), becoming the only active player with four EuroLeague titles.

Hines joined an elite group by winning his fourth EuroLeague crown, which also was his first trophy as team captain.

The American center won back-to-back titles with Olympiacos in 2012 and 2013 and took his third with CSKA Moscow in 2016.

The center of CSKA, playing in his eighth consecutive Final Four, is now one of only 15 players to win four or more EuroLeague titles. The only players ahead of him in championship triumphs are Dino Meneghin with a record seven titles, Clifford Luyk with six, while Aldo Ossola and Fragiskos Alvertis have five apiece.

Hines joins Meneghin and Fausto Bargna as the only players to win the competition multiple times with two different teams, although Hines is the first to do so in the Final Four era.
