Nikola Pavlovic put on an extraordinary performance in the last round for Mladost Zemun, receiving a Eurobasket.com B League Player of the Week award for round 13. The -year old player had a double-double of 34 points and 10 rebounds, while his team edged out Crnokosa (#4, 8-5) 99-95. Mladost Zemun maintains the 6th position in Serbian B League. Mladost Zemun is a typical solid league team placed somewhere in the middle or a little bit lower in the standings. They need more victories to improve their 7-6 record. In the team's last game Pavlovic had a remarkable 83.3% from 2-point range and got four three-pointers out of 8 attempts. He turned to be Mladost Zemun's top player in his first season with the team. Nikola Pavlovic averages this season 13.9ppg.
The second best player in last round's games was young Milos Jankovic (203-C-94) of Mladost Cacak. Jankovic had a very good evening with a double-double of 19 points and 20 rebounds. Bad luck as Mladost Cacak was edged by the higher-ranked Partizan II (#7, 6-7) 82-81. Mladost Cacak is still in a red zone at 13th spot in the standings. 9 lost games are too many comparing to just three victories Mladost Cacak managed to get this year. Jankovic is one of the most experienced players at Mladost Cacak and has a reputation of one of team's most reliable players.
Third on the list of top players last round was center Bojan Stanojevic (205-C-88) of Crnokosa (#4). Stanojevic got into 30-points club by scoring 37 points in the last round. He went also for eight rebounds . Despite Stanojevic's great performance Crnokosa lost 95-99 to slightly lower-ranked Mladost Zemun (#6, 7-6). But his team cannot count on just a single shooter as he also needs help of the other teammates. The last thing Crnokosa needs is to lose another game like this one. They lose more and more distance to the top teams. Their record is 8 victories and 5 lost games. Stanojevic has a great season in Serbia. After 13 games, he made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 20.7ppg (2nd best) and assists with 0.6apg (9th best).

He represented Serbia at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) this year. Stimac's team won Silver and his stats at that event were 5 games: 3.4ppg, 4.2rpg. Stimac is a very experienced player. He has played also professionally in Germany (Bayern Muenchen), Lithuania (Zalgiris and Zalgiris II Kaunas), Spain (Unicaja Malaga and Movil Estudiantes), Latvia (Valmiera and Ventspils), Serbia (KK Beovuk 72 Beograd), Czech Republic (CEZ Nymburk) and Turkey (Banvit and Eskisehir Basket). Stimac's game is described as:
Stimac is another very rich skilled Serbian center with many prospects in the European (and not only) courts. Vladimir is the total definition of a newly "born" center. Has very good skills in the paint, Can defense much taller opponents, can dash down any rebound in both edges and can do all the dirty job that a coach might ask him.
Has many weaknesses in the fouling as he can easily fouled out as his opponent can easily predict his passion and obsession in the game so they can simply take him out in no time. In the last European championship he only played for 18 minutes per game and had 6.5ppg, 6.5rpg, 1.1apg and 1.4bpg. He needs to work hard in order to add some fantasy in his game, plus a lot of workout in his shots from the charity line, as his percentages are really poor, around 40% !!.
