KK "Magic" Tuzla's product Alija Piric (211-F/C-97) and Nedim Djedovic (198-SF-97) are participating at prestigious Jordan Brand Classic in Barcelona. Forty best Europeans born '97 and younger are invited for a 3-day event that will determine 10 players who will travel to Brooklyn on April 13 to showcase their skills. Alija Piric started playing at KK "Magic" in 2005. After 7 years at KK "Magic" Piric moved to KK Spars, Sarajevo in September. He has already played for U16 Bosnian selection last january. KK "Magic" Tuzla is well known for quality work with young players. Some of them have already moved to KK "Spars" like 212cm tall Muamer Karic. Well-known Nedim Djedovic is a BC Barcelona member. His older brother Nihad plays for Bosnian National team. Bosnian fans can only hope that Nedim will join forces with his older brother who has played for all Bosnian NT selections and is a key player on our senior NT. As always, there is a Bosnian player at an international tournament who plays for another country. Namely, Dragan Bender (207-F-97) from Capljina has chosen to play for Croatian National team. While there is a hope that Nedim Djedovic will play for Bosnia, it is unlikely that Bender will change his mind. Just like most gifted players from southern part of the country who choose Croatia by default. Otherwise, Bosnia would be officially represented with three players at Jordan Brand Classic tournament. As far as Adriatic League region goes, Slovenia has one player, Croatia claims, besides Bosnian Dragan Bender, one player at the JBC camp. Montenegro and Macedonia are represented with one player each, Serbia has three players and Slovenia has one player. We shall know tomorrow if Piric or Djedovic make it among top 10 players who will travel to New York and play against best World players at a state-of-the-art Brooklyn Nets arena on April 13.

Best Player: Vuk Radivojevic did a little bit of everything for the team. He didn't force the action too often and looked like he wasn't challenged much going from Adriatic League to BiH domestic competition. Biggest Surprise: Darko Talic there's not much surprises when it comes to Igokea they don't typically give young players the chance to play. Talic was the exception, getting him into 13 games for the team in garbage time. Kakanj 23-14: The team went 15-5 in the first leg, 5-5 in th... [read more]
KSBiH DIVISION I SEASON RECAP! Igokea 15-1: The team ran through its opponents inside BiH going 13-0 before Kakanj was able to beat them in the finals 62-61. The team from Igokea proved once again that they are by far the best team in BiH currently. Best Player: Vuk Radivojevic did a little bit of everything for the team. He didn't force the action too often and looked like he wasn't challenged much going from Adriatic League to BiH domestic competition. Biggest Surprise: Darko Talic there's not much surprises when it comes to Igokea they don't typically give young players the chance to play. Talic was the exception, getting him into 13 games for the team in garbage time. Kakanj 23-14: The team went 15-5 in the first leg, 5-5 in the second and 3-4 in the playoffs getting to the finals. Coming off the huge win for the U16 team in the summer Josip Pandza once again proved that he is the best young coach in BiH. He led the upstart Kakanj all the way to the finals and even won a game against the titans of BiH basketball Igokea. The team has a talented and deep roster that can bring four players off the bench who can contribute to the team. Best Player: It's a tie between Zeljko Palavra and Obrad Tomic who provide a 1-2 punch inside for the team that no teams in BiH can match. Biggest Surprise: Haris Delalic proved to be a weapon off the bench for the club that was hard for most teams to match up with. His length and shooting ability made him a nightmare matchup on most nights. Mladost 19-14: The team went 13-7 in the first portion of the season, 5-5 in the second and 1-2 in the semifinals against Kakanj. Best Player: It is a tie between Aleksandar Radukic and Vojin Svilar who both scored and provided the offensive punch for the team on a consistent basis. Biggest Surprise: Drasko Knezevic finally had the chance to play consistent minutes after sitting on the bench for Igokea the last few years. He was solid if unspectacular and was one of the best PGs in the league for his team. Leotar 19-13: The team went 15-5 and surprised everyone in the first leg. In the second leg they went 4-6 and in the playoffs they lost both games to Igokea convincingly. The team started out 0-2 on the season and looked like it maybe a long season for the team before they corrected their mistakes and saved their season. It was quite an impressive result for the team. Best Player: Dejan Sakotic had the chance to put up a lot of shots but he made the most of his opportunities scoring, rebounding, passing and defending for his team. Biggest Surprise: Marko Rikalo had the chance to develop into a solid PG in the league and took advantage of the opportunity. He finally had the chance to run a team for an entire season and played a solid if unspectacular job. Still not a great shooter or passer he took what the defense gave him and kept the team organized on the court. Siroki Primorka 16-14: The team went 13-7 in the first leg and 3-7 in the second the second to match Spars Sarajevo. Johnny Dee came in and played very well for the club before he was allowed to leave for a better situation. The team gave young prospects Ivan Karacic and Mateo Colak a chance to play significant roles for the team and they made the most of their opportunities. They did a nice job balancing competitiveness and developing their young players. Best Player: Maj Kovacevic did a little bit of everything for the team but it was close between him, Andrija Coric and Karacic as to who was the best player on the team. They really played cohesive as a unit and it showed in the results for the team. Biggest Surprise: Mateo Colak was once a highly rated prospect who kind of fell off the map a bit in the last two years. Surprising, considering he just turned 18 years old. It probably doesn't help that he gets compared to Dragan Bender and Ivica Zubac two Bosnian Croats who are likely to be in the NBA very soon. He still shoots too many threes but scored better overall and finally started to playing a more physical, inside game and using his 208cm frame to his advantage. Spars Sarajevo 16-14: The team went 13-7 in the first leg of the season and 3-7 in the second. The team got off to a blistering start at 11-1 but the team realized that relying on veterans and its first American import wasn't staying focused on the long term vision of the club of raising and developing its own young talent. The season started out rocky before a game was even played when Darko Bajo bolted the team for Cedevita under questionable circumstances when the team was planning on giving him a chance to play minutes with the big club. The team lost Dalibor Persic early to injury after only 9 games. Kenan Bajramovic did it all offensively but at his advanced age struggled mightily to defend. Troran Brown struggled to play a team concept and to adjust to international basketball. The team realized it wasn't sustainable and left Bajramovic leave for opportunities abroad and soon let Brown go as well. The team relied on Nikola Gajic and its stable of young talents and the team showed promise and production with a lot of growing pains in between. Best Player: Nikola Gajic had his first chance to play as a professional after missing the previous season due to injury. He made the most of his opportunities and played excellent for his team. His scoring, rebounding passing, shooting from the outside and the FT line and played solid in every aspect for his team was invaluable. When left open he was a knockdown shooter from the 3pt line. Biggest Surprise: Refik Basic, with the stable of young talents like Campara, Gegic, Atic, Mangafic and others no one expected the 213cm 20 year old center Basic to show out. He played very well when given the opportunities. He showed solid scoring, rebounding and the occasional blocked shot. Sloboda Tuzla 17-13: The team went 10-10 in the first leg and 7-3 in the second leg. The team replaced its coach during the season and brought in some reinforcements that helped the team rebound with a very solid finish to the season. Best Player: Mihailo Sekulovic the veteran Montenegrin center was key in making the team competitive all season long. He was a force to reckon with his scoring and rebounding and showed up nightly as tough matchup for opponents. A skilled big man who has a high basketball IQ made him a weapon for his club and he gave excellent effort for the team. Biggest surprise: On a team that gave two youngsters the chance to play in Emir Cerkezovic and Jasmin Jakupovic the biggest surprise was Nedzad Muratovic. The 201cm forward played very well in limited minutes for the club and showed excellent athleticism, scoring, shooting range and rebounding. He didn't force the action and took what teams gave him and should get an expanded role next season. Zrinjski HT 16-14: The team went 8-12 in the first leg and then exploded to 8-2 in the second to remove any doubts about relegation. The team brought in a US international in Kevin Brown, international player Ljubo Samadan and Ali Demic. The team had a talented, deep and balanced roster and played well below expectations early but bounced back and played up to expectations in the second. Best Player: Vedran Princ has been one of the best PGs in BiH for a few years now and proved it once again this season. He played an invaluable role for the team and led the team and kept them organized and focused both on and off the court. Biggest surprise: Ali Demic was brought in when Bosna was sent down to D2 and was a huge asset as a third scorer for the team. He has size, length and can play inside and out and was an x-factor for the team on a nightly basis. He doesn't take a ton of shots but maximizes his opportunities and makes life difficult for opponents. Gradjanski 14-16: The team went 8-12 in the first leg of the competition. In the second leg they looked like they would be facing relegation but they went 6-4 in the second leg. The team relied mostly on veterans from Serbia and Milan Janusevic played very well for the team. Best Player: Milan Janusevic he did it all for his team, scoring in bunches, rebounding and passing. He struggled to defend at small forward and is on the wrong side of 30 but put fear in opponents with his ability to score in bunches. Biggest Surprise: Milan Saric the 18 year old who was a member of the U18 team for BiH last summer had the chance to play solid minutes for the team and showed steady presence on the court for the team. He played under control and took what teams gave him showing a solid basketball IQ and a team first mentality. Bosnjak 14-18: Bosnjak was an upstart from the beginning; the team was a surprise promotion last year. The fact that the team battled and stayed out of the relegation zone for the season was impressive as well. The team wasn't intimidated at all at the elevated level of competition and played competitively all season long. The team played well in the second stage when there was a real possibility of being sent down, going 5-5. The team's leading scorer was the young shooter Edin Residovic, the team has a talented balanced roster however with newcomers Amir Dovadzija, Aldin Dzelmo, Sindis Demic and Aldin Kadic. The team maximized their results and built a solid, balanced roster and it showed in the teams results. Best Player: Aldin Dzelmo, wasn't the leading scorer but he played a very solid complete game for the team and surprised some with his solid athleticism. He scored well, shot a blistering percent from two and very well from three. He struggled with his FT shooting but it looked like it was something that was correctable. He rebounded well was a solid passer and individual defender for his team. Biggest Surprise: Amir Dovadzija came from D2 after years of not really getting an opportunity in D1 in BiH. He came out playing extremely well and was impressive for the whole season. His solid start led to questions if he could sustain such success but he put those questions to rest with his solid consistent play. He was a solid scorer who displayed range out to the three point line. He was solid from the FT line and rebounded and showed solid ball handling and passing for his team. You could easily make the argument he was the best newcomer to D1 even if he wasn't the youngest. Student Mostar 12-20: The team was built around veterans Ramo Rizvic and Ismet Sefic who both have played internationally. They both proved their worth for the club but the rest of the team struggled. The team rebounded the ball very well with two of the best rebounders in the league in Rizvic and Sefic playing for the club. The team struggled shooting threes and FTs which led to teams struggles overall. The team played well at home going 10-6 but struggled on the road going 2-14. The team struggled mightily down the stretch going 1-10 in their last 11 games. Best Player: Ismet Sefic was a force inside for the team scoring and rebounding. He made a major impact for the team and was one of the best centers to play in Bosnia in the last 10 years, including former NBA player Ognjen Kuzmic. He was a consistent threat inside every single week. Biggest Surprise: Atif Durak struggled after finally getting the chance to play consistent minutes. He struggled in all aspects of the game, shooting, shooting outside and free throw shooting. He also struggled to defend and turned the ball over too much. The one time prospect of KK Spars failed to take advantage of the opportunities given to him this year. Radnik BN Basket 8-23: The team struggled right out of the gate on the season, starting out losing its first 10 games on the season. The team played better after that point going 6-6 down the stretch of the first stage. In the play out round the team went 2-7 securing it's relegation for next season. The team had back to back wins against solid teams in December against Sloboda 88-84 and 69-54 against Mladost. The team was a solid 6-8 at home but an abysmal 2-15 on the road. The team has done a nice job for years identifying and developing young talent but the lack of financing and talent finally caught up with the team. Best Player: Darko Damjanovic came over from KK Bosna and made an immediate impact for the club. He never had the chance to be the man on a club until this season and played well for the team with the expanded role. He played well for the team scoring, rebounding but was turnover prone and didn't shoot FTs well and struggled defending post players with size. Biggest Surprise: Zeljko Kljestan was at one point one of the better young guard prospects coming up in Bosnia. He struggled to play significant minutes for Radnik this season however. He just struggled to get on the court and was hit with injuries during the season. Varda HE 5-17: The team from Visegrad struggled all season long. The team struggled to score and to defend. The teams signature win would have been it's 78-77 win against Mladost which was the first loss of the season for the team after an 11-0 start. The team went 0-11 on the road dooming them to relegation. They ranked near the bottom of points, rebounds, assists and points allowed. Best Player: Djordje Dzeletovic the 22 year Serbian center made a major impact for the team in 19 games. He averaged 27mpg 15.6ppg 5.7rbpg while shooting 73.2% from two, 31.4% from three and 79.7% from the FT line. Biggest Surprise: Miroslav Radic the team brought in the Serbian veteran shooting guard to be leader of the team and he struggled mightily. In 8 games he averaged 8.5ppg 3.5rbpg 1.1aspg in 23mpg. He struggled with shooting the ball hitting only 29.2% from two and 38.1% from three.
