He recorded 13 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 38 minutes on the court. Union Olimpija Ljubljana (12-10) is placed seventh in the Adriatic League. There are only four games left until the end of the Adriatic League Regular Season. So now every game will be critical. Salin belongs to league's most steals and is ranked #4 with 1.8spg. He also averaged so far 7.2ppg, 3.4rpg, 2FGP: 41.5%, 3FGP: 33.7% and FT: 64.3% in the 21 games he played so far. Salin is currently a member of the Finnish senior national team.
