The Regular Season in Balkan League just started.

Group A
Galil Gilboa - Djuro Djakovic 66-59

The hosts trailed by 9 points at the halftime before their 39-23 charge in the second half, which allowed them to win the game. Swingman Amit Simhon (197-89, agency: Ronsport) stepped up and scored 13 points and 5 assists for the winners and point guard Nimrod Tishman (189-91) chipped in 12 points and 7 rebounds. Galil Gilboa's coach Lior Lubin used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. At the losing side Swedish-DR Congolese power forward Brice Massamba (208-88, college: UNLV) responded with 15 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists and point guard Josip Blajic (192-87) scored 9 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Djuro Djakovic will play next round against strong Levski Sofia trying to get back on the winning streak. Galil Gilboa will try to continue on its current victory against Mornar Bar on the road.

Kumanovo - Mornar Bar 71-69

The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Mornar Bar won third quarter 21-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Mornar Bar 41-28 including 28 on the defensive glass. Kumanovo 2009 brought some defensive toughness making 9 blocks. Mornar Bar was plagued by 25 personal fouls down the stretch. Swingman Ivica Dimcevski (194-G/F-89, agency: Interperformances) nailed 26 points and 9 rebounds (made all of his eight free throws) for the winning side and Serbian center Uros Lukovic (212-89) accounted for 15 points, 16 rebounds and 9 blocks. Four Kumanovo 2009 players scored in double figures. Guard Andrej Pajovic (188-92, college: High School) came up with 14 points and power forward Nemanja Milosevic (204-87, college: W.Kentucky, agency: Interperformances) added 9 points and 8 rebounds respectively for Mornar Bar in the defeat. Kumanovo 2009 will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Mornar Bar will play at home against Galil Gilboa.

Group B
Kavala - Rilski Sportist 81-79

A very interesting game took place in Kavala. It ended with only two-point defeat on the road of Bulgarian Rilski Sportist (0-1) to Greek Kavala (1-0) 81-79 on Wednesday evening.
