Djordje
Milosevic
The most crucial game of the last round was the first loss of undefeated Zrinjski HT (3-1) in Aleksandrovac on Wednesday night. Visitors were rolled over by fourth ranked Igokea (3-1) 98-75. It may be a crucial game in the contest for the top position in I. The game was mostly controlled by Igokea. Zrinjski HT managed to win second period 20-18. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. Igokea dominated down low during the game scoring 56 of its points in the paint compared to Zrinjski HT's 36. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 28 assists comparing to just 12 passes made by Zrinjski HT's players. Worth to mention a great performance of Serbian Djordje Milosevic (199-93) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds. American point guard James Robinson (190-94, college: Pittsburgh) contributed with 14 points and 6 assists for the winners. Igokea's coach Dragan Bajic felt very confident that he used entire bench which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. The former international forward Bozo Djurasovic (200-87) replied with a double-double by scoring 21 points and 11 rebounds for Zrinjski HT. Defending champion moved-up to second place in I. Igokea are looking forward to face Sloboda Tuzla (#4) on the road in the next round. Zrinjski HT will play against Bosna-Royal and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Bosnjak's fans can celebrate the first win of their team after two consecutive losses. The victory is especially important as it came on the road game in Trebinje, where they defeated Leotar (0-3) 85-74. Worth to mention a great performance of guard Amir Dovadzija (193-84) who helped to win the game recording 17 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists and Mujo Tuljkovic who added 18 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. At the losing side guard Stefan Mijovic (196-95) responded with 21 points, 5 rebounds and 8 assists. Bosnjak maintains tenth position in I with 1-2 record.

Bottom-ranked Spars Sarajevo is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their fourth consecutive match to third ranked Bosna-Royal (3-1) 101-84 on Wednesday evening. The winners were led by Goran Ikonic who scored that evening 28 points. Even 20 points by Maksim Kovacevic did not help to save the game for Spars Sarajevo.

Loser Spars Sarajevo still closes the standings with four games lost. Bosna-Royal will meet league's leader Zrinjski HT in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week.
