Vasiljevic
The most exciting game of round 17 in the Division I took place in Sarajevo. This derby game ended with only three-point defeat on the road of second-ranked Zrinjski HT (10-6) to first ranked Bosna-Royal (13-3) 74-71 on Saturday evening. Bosna-Royal forced 20 Zrinjski HT turnovers. The best player for the winners was the former international point guard Sasa Vasiljevic (183-79, agency: BeoBasket) who scored 18 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists. Vladimir Djordjevic (201) chipped in 14 points and 6 rebounds. American forward Torrion Brummitt (201, college: W.Carolina) produced a double-double by scoring 17 points and 10 rebounds for the guests. Zrinjski HT's coach Hrvoje Vlasic rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Bosna-Royal have a solid series of three victories in a row. Newly promoted Bosna-Royal maintains first place with 13-3 record. Zrinjski HT at the other side dropped to the fourth position with six games lost. Bosna-Royal are looking forward to face bottom-ranked Mladost (#10) in Mrkonjic Grad in the next round and are hoping to win another game. Zrinjski HT will play at home against Gradjanski (#7) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that this time they can win.

Siroki Primorka will play at home against Leotar (#6) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Tenth-ranked Mladost (5-12) made lots of trouble for third ranked Spars Sarajevo (11-6) on Saturday. Spars Sarajevo managed to secure only two-point victory 76-74.
