Milivoje
Mijovic
The Second Stage in Balkan League just ended.

The most interesting game of round 4 was only one-point a home defeat of 7th ranked Feni Industries (2-4) to sixth ranked Kozuv (3-3) 70-69 in the game for the sixth place. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Feni Industries won third quarter 19-17. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Worth to mention a great performance of Serbian Milivoje Mijovic (200-91) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds and American guard Larry Hall (190-83, college: W.Oregon) who added 12 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists during the contest. At the losing side Serbian power forward Branislav Djekic (209-91) responded with 8 points and 9 rebounds. Kozuv maintains sixth position in Group C with 3-3 record, which they share with Peja and Teodo Tivat. Feni Industries at the other side keep the seventh place with four games lost.
The game in Niksic was also worth to mention about. Fifth ranked Bulgarian Beroe (5-1) played at the court of 8th ranked Montenegrin Sutjeska (2-4). Beroe managed to secure a 8-point victory 76-68. The winners were led by Croatian power forward Stjepan Tesija (206-89) who scored that evening 14 points and Brandis Raley-Ross supported him with 9 points and 9 rebounds. Even 20 points and 4 assists by American swingman Jayon James (198-92, college: La-Monroe) did not help to save the game for Sutjeska. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Beroe maintains fifth position in Group C with 5-1 record, which they share with Kumanovo. Sutjeska at the other side keeps the eighth place with four games lost.
