Alba Fehervar is the Hungarian Cup champion after taking out Szolnok Olaj by the narrowest of margins in the final. The Hungarian league title-chasing club edged main rival Szolnok 59-58, claiming the win with just 12 seconds on the clock.
These two clubs are the big teams in Hungary. Alba is hunting the title this season and is top of the standings in the Regular Season. However, the club has not won the title since 2013 as an era of Szolnok dominance has set in. This cup win is hugely important, then. It can show the players that they can go on and beat Szolnok to the league title later in the season.
