Bojan Pelkic
The games at this stage are more interesting as they can be crucial for the final standings in Regular Season. Despite we already know who is stronger and who is weaker, there may be still last minute susprises and upsets.

The most exciting game of round 15 in the Division I took place in Trebinje. This derby game ended with only two-point defeat on the road of 3rd placed Kakanj (8-6) to seventh ranked Leotar (6-8) 82-80 on Saturday evening. Leotar outrebounded Kakanj 42-27 including a 34-16 advantage in defensive rebounds. It was a great shooting night for Leotar especially from behind the arc, where they had solid 80.0 percentage. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists. It was a good game for Serbian Marko Stevanovic who led his team to a victory with 19 points and 5 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). Montenegrin forward Bojan Pelkic (204-83) contributed with 10 points, 12 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Croatian swingman Zeljko Palavra (194-82) answered with 20 points and 5 rebounds for Kakanj. Kakanj's coach Josip Pandza rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Leotar moved-up to sixth place. Kakanj at the other side dropped to the fourth position with six games lost. They share it with Sloboda Tuzla. Leotar are looking forward to face higher ranked Sloboda Tuzla (#5) on the road in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Kakanj will play against Mladost and is hoping to win this game.
Division I top team - Bosna-Royal (11-3) added another victory to their record. This time they beat tenth ranked Bosnjak (4-11) in Sarajevo 87-79. It was a great evening for Edin Residovic (195-94) who led his team to a victory scoring 18 points. Strahinja Dragicevic helped adding 18 points. The best for the losing side was power forward Ernad Mujic (207-92) with 17 points and 5 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Newly promoted Bosna-Royal maintains first place with 11-3 record. Bosnjak at the other side stay at the bottom position with 11 games lost. Bosna-Royal will play against Siroki Primorka (#7) in Siroki Brijeg in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game.

The game in Mrkonjic Grad was also quite interesting. Second ranked Zrinjski HT (10-4) played at the court of 8th ranked Mladost (5-10).
