ABA League Super Cup, Quarter-Finals, 20.9.2017:

MORNAR - Partizan NIS 91:77 (26:24, 16:23, 27:17, 22:13)




Game recap: The last match of the 2017 ABA Super Cup quarter-finals was quite special. Because on one side you had the hosts Mornar Bar, while on the other there was the most successful club in the history of regional competition Partizan NIS. And on top of that, Sports Center Topolica was fully packed for this event! Eventually, Mornar prevailed in this exciting clash, mostly thanks to their excellent performance in the second half.

Mornar will play against Budućnost VOLI in the semi-finals of 2017 ABA Super Cup.

Key moments: Mornar were down by 49:57 with 6 minutes remaining in the 3rd quarter… But then the hosts of 2017 ABA Super Cup made a 15:0 run and went in front – 64:57! That run has boosted a confidence of the home team to the maximum level. Simply, Mornar crew have been flying all over the court from that moment, while the overall score in the second half will tell you how good they were. If you count only the 3rd and the 4th quarter, the score is 49:30.

Man of the match: Derek Needham will definitely be the leader of this new team of Mornar. The American point guard was the real boss down on the court, while he finished the match with 22 points and with the overall index rating of 24.

Can’t trick the stats: Just take a look at this – Mornar scored 16 three-pointers this evening! 16!!!
