For the first time since 2013 and for the 19th time in club’s history Cibona have won the Croatian Championship!

And they just could not have wished for a better way to reclaim the domestic title after so many years. Cibona have defeated their city rivals Cedevita by 4-0 in the final series, while this last and crucial win came after an unbelievable comeback! The Wolves were down by 17 points in the 33th minute – 68:85, but they managed to bounce back and eventually take the win thanks to Dominic Gilbert who scored the game-winning 2 pointer on just 2 seconds before the end – 100:98.

Cibona have therefore ended the reign of Cedevita who have won the last 5 titles in the Croatian Championship.
