Joksimovic
Eighth-ranked Serbian Radnicki KG (8-8) gave a tough game to first ranked Bosnian Igokea (13-3) in Aleksandrovac on Saturday. Igokea managed to secure only three-point victory 88-85. However their fans expected much easier game. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 29-19. But Radnicki KG won second period 18-16. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Igokea forced 20 Radnicki KG turnovers. 30 personal fouls committed by Radnicki KG helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of Slovenian Nebojsa Joksimovic (193-81) who helped to win the game recording 20 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists and Serbian forward Branko Jorovic (204-81, agency: Beo Basket) who added 22 points during the contest. Igokea's coach Dragan Bajic used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side Slovenian-Serbian point guard Aleksandar Capin (186-82, agency: Beo Basket) responded with 29 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Igokea maintains first position with 13-3 record. Radnicki KG at the other side dropped to the seventh place with eight games lost. They share the position with Un.Olimpija. Igokea are looking forward to face KK Split (#9) on the road in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Radnicki KG will play against MZT Skopje and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
One of the most interesting games of round 16 was a derby match between two teams from Croatia. The game took place in Zagreb where ninth ranked KK Split edged host Cedevita (9-7) 75-72. The winners were led by center Nikola Vujcic (211-78) who scored that evening 18 points and Vedran Vukusic supported him with 14 points and 7 rebounds. Even 19 points by American guard Bracey Wright (191-84, college: Indiana, agency: Priority Sports) did not help to save the game for Cedevita. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. KK Split maintains ninth position with 7-9 record. Cedevita at the other side dropped to the fourth place with seven games lost. They share the position with MZT Skopje and Buducnost. KK Split will play against league's leader Igokea in Aleksandrovac in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. Cedevita will play on the road against the league's second-placed Zvezda having rather not much hope for a victory.
The game in Ljubljana was also quite interesting. Second ranked Serbian Zvezda (11-5) played at the court of 7th ranked Slovenian Un.Olimpija (8-8). Zvezda defeated Un.Olimpija 70-56 on Saturday. Igor Rakocevic fired 23 points for the winners. Aron Baynes produced a double-double by scoring 13 points and 11 rebounds for lost side. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Zvezda have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain second position with 11-5 record having just two points less than leader Igokea, which they share with Partizan. Loser Un.Olimpija keeps the seventh place with eight games lost. They share the position with Radnicki KG. Zvezda will meet at home Cedevita (#5) in the next round. Un.Olimpija will play against KK Zadar and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Zadar. It ended with only two-point home defeat of 10th ranked Croatian KK Zadar (6-10) to twelfth ranked Slovenian Krka (6-10) 67-65 in the fight for the tenth place. It was a very good performance for Domen Lorbek who helped to win the game recording 24 points and 5 rebounds. KK Zadar's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending Slovenian champion moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Cibona and Zadar. Krka's next round opponent will be Cibona (#11) in Zagreb.

There were no shocking results in the other games in round 16: Cibona lost to Partizan on the opponent's court 68-74. MZT Skopje lost to Montenegrin defending champion Buducnost in a home game 69-76. Siroki WWin managed to beat Szolnok on the road 75-69.

A very interesting game took place in Zadar.

KK Zadar was ahead by 9 points at the halftime before a 41-30 second half run of Krka. 24 personal fouls committed by KK Zadar helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities.

Croatian point guard Jakov Vladovic (187-83) contributed with 13 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American Romeo Travis (201-84, college: Akron) replied with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds and Croatian-Bosnian power forward Jozo Brkic (212-86, agency: Interperformances) added 17 points and 4 assists (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field) in the effort for KK Zadar. KK Zadar's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Defending Slovenian champion moved-up to tenth place, which they share with Cibona and Zadar. Krka's next round opponent will be Cibona (#11) in Zagreb.

Partizan - Cibona 74-68

Very expected game in Beograd where 10th ranked Croatian Cibona (6-10) was defeated by third ranked Serbian Partizan (11-5) 74-68. However just six-point win is not that big difference and the fans of host team counted on more convincing victory. The hosts were tied after three quarters but managed to speed up in last quarter eventually winning the game. Partizan forced 22 Cibona turnovers. They brought some defensive toughness making 7 blocks. 25 personal fouls committed by Cibona helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Quite impressive performance for guard Dragan Milosavljevic (198-89) who helped to win the game recording 15 points and 5 rebounds. American forward Drew Gordon (205-90, college: N.Mexico) contributed with 11 points and 7 rebounds for the winners. American guard D.J. Strawberry (196-85, college: Maryland) replied with 19 points and 7 rebounds and power forward Tomislav Zubcic (208-90, agency: Beo Basket) added 14 points and 5 rebounds in the effort for Cibona. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Defending Serbian champion moved-up to second place, which they share with Crvena Zvezda. Defending Croatian champion Cibona keeps the tenth position with ten games lost. Partizan's next round opponent will be HKK Siroki WWin (#13) in Siroki Brijeg which should be an easy win for them. Cibona will play at home against Krka in Novo Mesto and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
