Nedzad
Muratovic
There are only two more rounds left in the Regular Season in Division I.

The most interesting game of round 16 was only one-point a home defeat of 5th ranked Kakanj (9-7) to fourth ranked Sloboda Tuzla (10-6) 76-75. Worth to mention a great performance of forward Nedzad Muratovic (201-95) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 18 points, 12 rebounds and 5 assists and American guard Devonte Brown (188-92, college: Indiana St.) who added 14 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists during the contest. Sloboda Tuzla's coach Velimir Gasic used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. At the losing side center Emir Zimic (218-86) responded with a double-double by scoring 14 points and 12 rebounds. Sloboda Tuzla moved-up to third place, which they share with Spars Sarajevo. Kakanj at the other side keeps the fifth position with seven games lost. Sloboda Tuzla will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Kakanj will play again on the road against Sloboda Tuzla (#4) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
The game between Top Four teams took place in Mostar. Their biggest opponent host Zrinjski HT (10-5) lost to third ranked Spars Sarajevo (10-6) 88-74. The winners were led by Serbian swingman Maksim Kovacevic (196-87, agency: SPORTlab Agency) who scored that evening 26 points, 6 rebounds and 6 assists and Zlatko Jovanovic supported him with 27 points. Even a double-double of 22 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists by the former international forward Bozo Djurasovic (200-87) did not help to save the game for Zrinjski HT. Spars Sarajevo have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 10-6 record having just one point less than leader Bosna-Royal, which they share with Sloboda Tuzla. Zrinjski HT at the other side keeps the second place with five games lost. Spars Sarajevo will play against bottom-ranked Mladost (#10) in Mrkonjic Grad in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Zrinjski HT will play on the road against the league's leader Bosna-Royal (#1) in Sarajevo and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bottom-ranked Bosnjak managed to get a fifth victory, breaking the two-game losing streak on Saturday night. This time they edged eighth-ranked Gradjanski in Hadzici 85-82. Mujo Tuljkovic fired 29 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Milos Markovic produced a double-double by scoring 24 points and 13 rebounds for lost side. Bosnjak (5-11) moved-up to ninth place, which they share with Mladost. Loser Gradjanski keeps the eighth position with ten games lost. Bosnjak will meet higher ranked Leotar (#6) in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. Gradjanski will play against Siroki Primorka and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Division I top team - Bosna-Royal (12-3) added another victory to their record. This time they beat seventh ranked Siroki Primorka (6-10) in Siroki Brijeg 81-75. It was a very good performance for Haris Delalic who helped to win the game recording 20 points and 9 rebounds. Newly promoted Bosna-Royal maintains first position with 12-3 record. Siroki Primorka at the other side keeps the seventh place with ten games lost. Bosna-Royal's next round opponent will be league's second-placed Zrinjski HT in Mostar and it will be for sure the game of the week. Siroki Primorka will play on the road against Gradjanski (#8) in Bijeljina and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Fourth ranked Sloboda Tuzla (10-6) crushed at home 6th ranked Leotar (6-9) by 27 points 99-72, which is the biggest margin this round on Saturday night. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Leotar. Worth to mention a quality performance of Enes Latifagic who helped to win the game recording 22 points and 5 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Sloboda Tuzla moved-up to third place, which they share with Spars Sarajevo. Loser Leotar keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. Sloboda Tuzla will face Kakanj (#5) at home in the next round. Leotar will play against Bosnjak and hope to win that game.

In the last game of round 16 Mladost was destroyed by Kakanj on the opponent's court 85-65.

Kakanj - Mladost 85-65

Very expected game when 9th ranked Mladost (5-11) was crushed on the road by fifth ranked Kakanj (9-7) 85-65 on Saturday. Kakanj forced 20 Mladost turnovers. Worth to mention a great performance of Serbian guard Vojin Svilar (187-86, college: W.Georgia, agency: BeoExcell) who helped to win the game recording 24 points and 5 assists and forward Aldin Muflizovic (200-92) who added 13 points and 12 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side Montenegrin Filip Patkovic (200-90) responded with 17 points and 7 rebounds and Serbian center Bojan Stanojevic (203-88) scored 14 points. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Kakanj maintains fifth position with 9-7 record. Mladost lost fifth consecutive game. They dropped to the bottom place with 11 games lost. Kakanj will face higher ranked Sloboda Tuzla (#4) on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game.
