Crvena Zvezda edged Partizan in a late thriller (75-76) on Monday (17/06) and earned the Serbian League title (3-1).

Game 4 of the best-of-five series saw Partizan be in control in the first half and lead by 14 midway through the second quarter (36-22).

Zvezda reacted, though, and went on a 16-30 run to tie the game (52-52). After that, it was a late thriller, with consecutive lead changes.

Yet, it was Billy Baron that made the difference for Zvezda. The American guard scored seven of his game-high 21 points in the final 60 seconds of the game to hand his team the victory.

Although Alex Renfroe put Partizan in front with 13 seconds to go (75-74), Baron made the layup at the buzzer and stunned his opponents, helping Crvena Zvezda win the series and the title.

Renfroe stood out for the losing squad, with 11 points apiece.
