The youngest EuroLeague MVP just added another accolade.

On Sunday, guard Luka Doncic became the youngest EuroLeague Final Four MVP.

Doncic led Real Madrid to a championship Sunday afternoon, defeating reigning champion Fenerbahce 85-80.

The 19-year-old, a potential No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft, had 15 points, four assists and three rebounds.

Doncic scored six points in the first quarter, but was unable to get to the basket much in the second. He continued to set teammates up for baskets, though, including an instance where he over-matched former NBA forward Jan Vesely.

He only attempted five shots in the first half.

With a two-point lead in the third, Doncic was able to kickstart Real Madrid with strong defensive presence and a 3-point stroke.

Instead of Fenerbahce tying the game, Real Madrid took a five-point lead.

The team would still lead by five when Doncic fouled out with 38 seconds left. He went 3-for-8 from the field in the championship game.

Doncic still has not yet committed to the NBA draft next season, saying on Friday before the Final Four that he would “perhaps” decide after the season.

He is widely considered one of the top two prospects in the NBA Draft, along with Arizona forward Deandre Ayton.
