Serbian Slobodan Bozovic (207-C/F-79) put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Kozuv, receiving a Eurobasket.com Player of the Week award for round 8.
The 33-year old player was the main contributor (31 points, four rebounds and three assists) to his team's victory, helping them to beat Teodo Tivat (#7, 4-2) 84-71. Kozuv is placed at 8th position in Balkan League group B. Kozuv is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 4-4 record. In the team's last game Bozovic had a remarkable 75.0% from 2-point range. It was one of impressive evenings for him as usually he does not deliver so high stats. Slobodan Bozovic averages this season 11.3ppg.

The second best player in last round's games was 29-year old Serbian Marko Marinovic (183-PG-83) of league's leader Levski Sofia. Marinovic had a very good evening with 22 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. Of course he lead Levski Sofia to another comfortable win outscoring slightly lower-ranked Kumanovo (#3, 4-3) 103-66. It was definitely game of the week between two contenders to the top position in group A. Levski Sofia consolidated its place in the very top position of the standings. His team lost just one game this season, while they won 4 matches. Marinovic is a newcomer at Levski Sofia, but is already one of team's top players. He belongs to the best scorers in the league with 16.2ppg (#4). He also recorded 5.2 assists per game.

Third on the list of top players last round was center Savo Djikanovic (211-C-75, agency: Beo Basket) of Teodo Tivat (#7). Djikanovic scored 16 points and grabbed six rebounds. Despite Djikanovic's great performance Teodo Tivat lost 71-84 to slightly lower-ranked Kozuv (#8, 4-4). But his team cannot count on just a single player as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Teodo Tivat needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams in group B. Their record is 4 victories and 2 lost games. Djikanovic has a great season in Balkan League. After only 6 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.8ppg (2nd best) and rebounds with 7.0rpg (6th best).

Other top performing players last week:
4. Nikolay Varbanov (210-C-85) of Levski Sofia - 16 points and 3 rebounds
5. Bojan Krstevski (205-F/C-89) of Kavala - 14 points, 8 rebounds and 2 assists
6. Igor Mijajlovic (193-PG-84) of Kozuv - 13 points and 6 assists
7. Milos Pavlovic (210-F/C-84) of OKK Beograd - 16 points and 9 rebounds
8. Aleksandar Radulovic (207-C-84) of Teodo Tivat - 12 points and 11 rebounds
9. Chavdar Kostov (195-SG-88) of Levski Sofia - 13 points, 2 rebounds and 4 assists
10. Dimitris Kalampakas (202-F-89) of Kavala - 20 points

The Player of the week is chosen based on efficiency calculation, but also including game result, importance of the game, if played recorded double-double/triple-double, etc.
The efficiency formula is a combination of various formulas used by different basketball organizations/leagues. We got involved many basketball scouts and journalists to assure it's accuracy.
The formula: 1.5*PTS + 3* (REB+AST+ST+BL-TO) - 2*BSAG - 4*PF + 3*PFRV + 4* (2FGPM+3FGPM) + 1.5*FTM - 3* (2FGPA-2FGPM) - 3* (3FGPA-3FGPM) - (FTA-FTM)

Danilo Mijatovic is back with MZT Skopje - 6 days ago
The saga that lasted nearly a month is finally over as defending champion KK MZT Skopje Aerodrom gets the permission to put Danilo Mijatovic (206-F/C-83) to their roster. The experienced Power Forward joined KK Kumanovo 2009 at the start of the season, from KK MZT Skopje Aerodrom, but despite being their best player averaging 18.9ppg and 5.8rpg in Prva Liga and 19.2ppg and 5.0rpg in BIBL the financial problems forced Kumanovo and Mijatovic to part ways. As said before, for Danilo Mijatov...   [read more]

Peja - Kumanovo 83-79 Peja overcame Kumanovo to take a narrow lead before the return leg. The hosts took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Kumanovo won third quarter 22-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Peja looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. Montenegrin forward Slobodan Miljanic (201-90, college: Lynn, agency: AproK Sports Group) fired 15 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists for the winners. Forward Al...   [read more]
