The biggest surprise of round 6 in Balkan League was Croatian guest Djuro Djakovic's (#4) road victory over Montenegrin Mornar Bar (#5) 70-63 on Tuesday evening. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Mornar Bar won fourth quarter 16-14. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The best player for the winners was Swedish-DR Congolese power forward Brice Massamba (208-88, college: UNLV) who had a double-double by scoring 17 points and 10 rebounds. Power forward Marino Sarlija (207-89) chipped in 13 points and 7 rebounds. At the other side the best for losing team was center Mihailo Sekulovic (205-91) who recorded 14 points. Djuro Djakovic maintains fourth position with 2-4 record. Mornar Bar at the other side keeps the fifth place with five games lost.

Mornar Bar will play on the road against the league's leader Galil Gilboa (#1) and is hoping to prove to their fans that the loss was just an accident.

Serbian center Uros Lukovic (212-89) replied with a double-double by scoring 22 points and 14 rebounds (on 10-of-12 shooting from the field) for Kumanovo 2009. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Mornar Bar maintains fifth position with 1-5 record. Kumanovo 2009 at the other side keeps the second place with two games lost. They share the position with Rilski Sportist. Mornar Bar will play against league's leader Galil Gilboa on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Kumanovo 2009 will play against the league's leader Galil Gilboa and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
