Maslinko
Prva Liga top team - Rabotnicki (11-2) had no problems winning another game on Saturday. This time they crushed sixth ranked Pelister Bitola (4-9) 95-60. The game was mostly controlled by Rabotnicki. Pelister Bitola managed to win fourth quarter 21-17. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They outrebounded Pelister Bitola 45-28 including a 36-19 advantage in defensive rebounds. Rabotnicki looked well-organized offensively handing out 29 assists comparing to just 14 passes made by Pelister Bitola's players. The former international Andrej Maslinko (206-97, agency: BeoBasket) stepped up with a double-double by scoring 23 points and 13 rebounds (made all of his seven free throws) for the winners and naturalized Bulgarian center Kiril Pavlovski (210-85, agency: Global Sports Plaza) chipped in 17 points and 11 rebounds (on 8-of-10 shooting from the field). At the losing side Serbian forward Milos Andrejevic (198-89) responded with 20 points and 9 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. Rabotnicki maintains first place with 11-2 record, which they share with Feni Industries. Pelister Bitola lost fifth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. Rabotnicki will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game. Pelister Bitola will play at home against the league's second-placed Feni Industries (#2) and is hoping to prove to their supporters that they can break losing series.
Bottom-ranked Vardar (0-13) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 13th consecutive match to third ranked Kumanovo (9-3) 86-69. Serbian power forward Danilo Mijatovic (206-83) nailed 28 points and 9 rebounds for the winning side and Stefan Zivanovic accounted for 11 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. American-Nigerian guard Deji Ibitayo (193-93, college: Akron, agency: Mansfield and Associates) came up with 17 points and 4 steals for Vardar in the defeat. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Kumanovo have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain third place with 9-3 record having just three points less than leader Rabotnicki. Newly promoted Vardar still closes the standings with 13 games lost. Kumanovo will play against Strumica (#5) in Strumica in the next round. Vardar will play at home against Ohrid AV and hopes to get finally their first victory.
The game in Ohrid was also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Kozuv (8-4) played at the court of 7th ranked Ohrid AV (2-10). Kozuv managed to secure a 6-point victory 86-80 on Saturday. Ivica Dimcevski fired 21 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. Devin Brooks produced 21 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists for lost side. Ohrid AV's coach Petar Chochoroski rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Kozuv have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 8-4 record. Ohrid AV lost fifth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the seventh position with ten games lost. Kozuv will meet at home Pelister Bitola (#6) in the next round. Ohrid AV will play against Vardar in Skopje and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

In the last game of round 13 Strumica was destroyed by Feni Industries on the opponent's court 97-69.

Pelister Bitola - Rabotnicki 60-95

At the losing side Serbian forward Milos Andrejevic (198-89) responded with 20 points and 9 rebounds and American point guard Phil Hawkins (186-90, college: Texas St.) scored 11 points and 7 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. Rabotnicki maintains first place with 11-2 record, which they share with Feni Industries. Pelister Bitola lost fifth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. Rabotnicki will have a break next round, and it should allow them to practice more before next game.

Feni Industries - Strumica 97-69

Rather expected game in Kavadarci where 5th ranked Strumica (5-7) was crushed by second ranked Feni Industries (11-2) 97-69 on Saturday. The game without a history. Feni Industries led from the first minutes and controlled entire game increasing their lead in each quarter. Feni Industries outrebounded Strumica 46-25 including a 35-20 advantage in defensive rebounds. They looked well-organized offensively handing out 24 assists. The former international power forward Kiril Nikolovski (210-88) fired 21 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists for the winners. Serbian power forward Branislav Djekic (209-91) chipped in a double-double by scoring 14 points and 10 rebounds. Four Feni Industries players scored in double figures. Serbian forward Petar Jokic (201-91) produced 34 points (!!!) and 4 assists and the former international forward Vladimir Brckov (200-89, agency: BeoBasket) added 13 points and 5 assists respectively for lost side. 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. Feni Industries keep a position of league leader, which they share with Rabotnicki. Strumica at the other side keeps the fifth place with seven games lost. Feni Industries will meet Pelister Bitola (#6) on the road in the next round which should be theoretically another easy game. Strumica will play against Kumanovo and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Top scorers:
Strumica: P.Jokic 34+4reb+4ast, V.Brckov 13+4reb+5ast, L.Angelov 6+2reb, D.Makenadziev 4+7ast, D.Lazarevski 3+2reb+1ast, D.Delipetrov 3+3reb

Ohrid AV - Kozuv 80-86

The game in Ohrid was also quite interesting. Fourth ranked Kozuv (8-4) played at the court of 7th ranked Ohrid AV (2-10). Kozuv managed to secure a 6-point victory 86-80 on Saturday. The guests took control from the first minutes by winning first half. But Ohrid AV won third quarter 21-14. However it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. The game was decided in the last minutes when Kozuv won last quarter 23-19. They made 22-of-29 free shots (75.9 percent) during the game. The former international swingman Ivica Dimcevski (195-89, agency: Interperformances) fired 21 points and 5 rebounds for the winners. American point guard Kenyon McNeaill (185-91, college: Louisiana Tech) chipped in 20 points and 5 assists. American guard Devin Brooks (186-92, college: Creighton) produced 21 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists and power forward Slobodan Mihajlovski (202-82) added 13 points and 9 rebounds respectively for lost side. Five Ohrid AV players scored in double figures. Ohrid AV's coach Petar Chochoroski rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Kozuv have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain fourth place with 8-4 record. Ohrid AV lost fifth consecutive game. Newly promoted team keeps the seventh position with ten games lost. Kozuv will meet at home Pelister Bitola (#6) in the next round. Ohrid AV will play against Vardar in Skopje and it may be a tough game between close rivals.

Kumanovo - Vardar 86-69

Bottom-ranked Vardar (0-13) is still winless. This time they lost on the road their 13th consecutive match to third ranked Kumanovo (9-3) 86-69. It looked good early as Vardar took a 1-point small lead at the end of first quarter. But then Kumanovo had a 26-17 second period charge getting the lead and Vardar was not able to take back game control losing it eventually 69-86. Kumanovo players were unselfish on offense dishing 21 assists. Serbian power forward Danilo Mijatovic (206-83) nailed 28 points and 9 rebounds for the winning side and Serbian Stefan Zivanovic (196-89) accounted for 11 points, 6 rebounds and 4 assists. American-Nigerian guard Deji Ibitayo (193-93, college: Akron, agency: Mansfield and Associates) came up with 17 points and 4 steals and Jetmir Zekjiri (200-96) added 12 points and 5 rebounds respectively for Vardar in the defeat. Both teams had four players each who scored in double figures. Both coaches used bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Kumanovo have a solid series of three victories in a row. They maintain third place with 9-3 record having just three points less than leader Rabotnicki. Newly promoted Vardar still closes the standings with 13 games lost. Kumanovo will play against Strumica (#5) in Strumica in the next round. Vardar will play at home against Ohrid AV and hopes to get finally their first victory.
