This might actually be a really amazing season for Krka! After they had won the 1st place in ABA 2 and therefore qualified for the 2018/19 ABA 1 championship, the squad from Novo mesto are now on the verge of claiming the title in the 2017/18 Slovenian Championship!

Krka have scored a huge away win against Petrol Olimpija in Game 3 of the Finals and they now have the lead of 2:1. It means that Krka need just 1 more win to close the series, while the next match will be played at their court in Novo mesto.

The reign of MZT Skopje Aerodrom in Macedonian Championship is over, as Rabotnički have won the 2017/18 title! In the clash of two fierce rivals, Rabotnički have won the final series by 3:0 and have therefore become the national champions for the first time since 2009.

Recall that MZT Skopje Aerodrom won the previous 6 domestic titles in Macedonia, but that streak has come to an end.

Meanwhile in Serbia, Borac have qualified for the 2017/18 National Championship Semi-Finals after they defeated Dynamic VIP PAY in decisive Game 3 which was played in Čačak. Borac will face FMP in the semis.
