|'Now it's time to go out and celebrate,' was Besiktas coach Ergin Ataman's last directions to his players after a long but very rewarding season|
Besiktas Milangaz put the finishing touches on one of the greatest seasons in Turkish basketball history by winning the Beko Basketbol Ligi title.
The Istanbul outfit completed a Turkish Cup, EuroChallenge and domestic league treble on Monday night with an 80-76 victory over Anadolu Efes.
The triumph gave Ergin Ataman's team a 4-2 series victory.
Carlos Arroyo, who had his struggles this season after joining the club in late December, capped a terrific play-off performance with 18 points.
The Puerto Rico international averaged 16 points per game during the title series against Efes.
Arroyo also had 23 points in the Game 4 triumph over regular season winners Galatasaray that clinched a spot in the finals.
Besiktas, who won the EuroChallenge after beating Elan Chalon in the final on 29 April, defeated Fenerbahce in the first round of the Turkish play-offs.
"It's time to go out and celebrate because it is not easy to win three titles in one season," Ataman said, "especially when you are playing against top-ranked Euroleague teams.
"We not only did a great job tonight but rewrote Besiktas JK's basketball history."
It's been a long time coming for Besiktas in Turkey, who last captured the domestic league crown in 1975.
