Kostoski
Prva Liga is at the halfway of the Regular Season and there are still another 7 rounds left.

The game had a very big importance for second-ranked Kumanovo 2009 as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Kumanovo 2009 defeated 3rd placed ABA Strumica at home 95-86. It was a key game for the top position in the league. The hosts started the game with a very strong first quarter 30-18. But ABA Strumica won second period 20-19. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Kumanovo 2009 won last quarter 29-21. Kumanovo 2009 outrebounded ABA Strumica 32-18 including 19 on the defensive glass. 24 personal fouls committed by ABA Strumica helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Worth to mention a great performance of international guard Aleksandar Kostoski (186-G-88, agency: Global Sports Plaza) who helped to win the game recording 29 points and 7 assists (made all of his seven free throws). Serbian center Uros Lukovic (212-89) contributed with 21 points and 9 rebounds (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) for the winners. Serbian forward Milan Janjusevic (196-83) answered with 25 points and 6 rebounds for ABA Strumica. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. As mentioned above they are at the top of the standings, which they share with Feni Indistrija and Kozuv. ABA Strumica at the other side dropped to the fourth place with three games lost. They share the position with Rabotnicki and Lirija. ABA Strumica will play next round against Pelister Bitola trying to get back on the winning streak. Kumanovo 2009 will try to continue on its current victory against seventh ranked Vardar in Skopje.
The most crucial game of the last round was a loss of Feni Indistrija (5-2) in Kavadarci. Hosts were defeated by Kozuv (5-2) 79-73. It ended at the same time the two-game winning streak of Feni Indistrija. It was a key game for the top position in the league as both teams had the same 4-2 record before this meeting. It was a great evening for the former international guard Dimitar Karadzovski (190-84, agency: Global Sports Plaza) who led his team to a victory scoring 13 points. Igor Mijajlovic helped adding 14 points. Kozuv's coach Marjan Srbinovski allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games. At the losing side Serbian center Dusan Knezevic (207-80, agency: BeoExcell) responded with 19 points and 9 rebounds. Kozuv have a solid series of four victories in a row. They keep a position of league leader, which they share with Feni Indistrija and Kumanovo. Kozuv will play against Fersped-Rabotnicki (#6) in Skopje in the next round which should be theoretically an easy game. Feni Indistrija will play at home against Lirija (#4) in Skopje and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Skopje: Fersped-Rabotnicki (#5) and Vardar (#7). Fersped-Rabotnicki (4-3) crushed visiting Vardar (1-6) by 41 points 110-69. It was an exceptional evening for Nenad Zivcevic who led the winners and scored 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. Dragan Kerkez came up with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 13 rebounds for Vardar in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Fersped-Rabotnicki moved-up to fourth place, which they share with ABA Strumica and Lirija. Vardar lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with six games lost. Fersped-Rabotnicki will meet at home league's second-placed Kozuv in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Vardar will play against the league's leader Kumanovo 2009 (#1).
Bottom-ranked Pelister Bitola is still unable to win any game. This time they lost on the road their seventh consecutive match to sixth ranked Lirija (4-3) 100-66. Balsa Radunovic fired 22 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists for the winners. Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Lirija moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Rabotnicki and ABA Strumica. Pelister Bitola at the other side still closes the standings with seven games lost. Lirija's next round opponent will be higher ranked Feni Indistrija (#3) in Kavadarci and it will be quite challenging to get another victory. Pelister Bitola will play at home against ABA Strumica (#5) and hopes to get finally their first victory.

Rabotnicki - Vardar 110-69

Another exciting game was a derby match between two local teams from Skopje: Fersped-Rabotnicki (#5) and Vardar (#7). Fersped-Rabotnicki (4-3) crushed visiting Vardar (1-6) by 41 points 110-69. The game without a history. Fersped-Rabotnicki led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. They dominated down low during the game scoring 68 of its points in the paint compared to Vardar's 48. Fersped-Rabotnicki looked well-organized offensively handing out 23 assists comparing to just 9 passes made by Vardar's players. It was an exceptional evening for naturalized Serbian forward Nenad Zivcevic (204-87, agency: New Trend Agency) who led the winners and scored 19 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. point guard Jane Petrovski (181-87) accounted for 17 points, 7 assists and 5 steals for the winning side. Five Fersped-Rabotnicki players scored in double figures. Dragan Kerkez came up with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 13 rebounds and Vojce Levkoski (-91) added 11 points respectively for Vardar in the defeat. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Fersped-Rabotnicki moved-up to fourth place, which they share with ABA Strumica and Lirija. Vardar lost fourth consecutive game. They keep the seventh position with six games lost. Fersped-Rabotnicki will meet at home league's second-placed Kozuv in the next round and it will be quite challenging to get another victory.
