EuroCup Women finalists Castors Braine have been granted a reception with HM King Philippe of Belgium.

It is the first time in history that a Belgian basketball team - male or female - has met with the King.

Also in attendance on the big occasion was Belgian Basketball Federation president, and FIBA Europe vice-president Cyriel Coomans.

The players spent half an hour talking with the King.

It is not the first time that the back-to-back defending champions have captured the attention of Belgian notaries, with Prime Minister Charles Michel on hand to support the team on the second leg of the EuroCup Women final.

However, his support would ultimately prove in vein, the Belgian club losing to their French rivals ESBVA-LM 137-121 across the two legs of the home-and-away final.
