At the first one, Flamengo won the series by 3-1 with a three-pointer from Marcelinho Machado few seconds from the end of game 4. The following year Franca won the series by 3-0. In game 3 in this series, the point guard of Franca Fernando Penna made a beautiful play on the American forward David Teague.
