Perfumerías Avenidas makes history while dethroning former league Champions Ros Casares. Avenidas was challenged by Ros Casares and of course their home crowd. However,  in the second game of the series they managed to tough it out with a 5pt win (890-85) and won the second title in their history in this competition. Only 18 days ago, Avenidas was proclaimed the 2011 Euroleague Champions.

The Valencia, who needed a victory to force the tiebreaker, came out on fire on the court and opened with a 5-0 lead, but the gap was closed after a 3 pointer by Anke De Mondt (7-7) . The frantic exchange of blows placed the 20-15 in the sixth minute of a match which ended its first quarter with the score 32-24. The second half Ros Casares enjoyed a lead, however Avenidas would not back down.

During this season pure confidence has taken them over Ros (they have won all six games played between the teams), not intimidated. A three pointer by Lawson with nine second unleashes the emotion (85-88), but two free throws made by Belinda Snell closed the lead, the final and a perfect season for Avenidas.
