ABA League Round 16, Saturday, 19.1.2019:


Where? Pinki Sports Hall, Sremska Mitrovica

When? 21:00

Story of the game: What we believe that would become an exciting encounter, is coming up in Sremska Mitrovica, where Mega Bemax will be hosting Mornar and will try to bounce back after three straight defeats and stay in the race for a spot in the 2019 ABA League Playoffs. Mornar, on the other hand, are determined to win in order to stay in the middle of the ABA League standings, safely away from the danger zone and seeking for their last possibility to re-enter the battle for a spot in the ABA League Playoffs.

If we consider shape of the two sides solely, than one would argue that Mornar are in advantage, having won three of their last five games and having won their last game. To compare – Mega have won only once in the past five rounds and lost 3 games in a row. They are, however, two wins above Mornar in the standings but… their now former player Goga Bitadze had a lot to do with this fact.

The history is clear – Mornar have never ever beaten Mega Bemas in Sremska Mitrovica in the regional league history. Can this be the first time?

Match-up in focus: The battle between Zoran Nikolić and Uroš Luković will most likely be in focus. It’s too early to speak of Nikolić’s averages in the Mega jersey, since he’s still a newcomer in Sremska Mitrovica, but there is no doubt that he has started his Mega journey the way everyone was hoping for. On the other side, there is no need to spend lots of words describing Luković’s ability as we are all quite aware of the fact that he is certainly one of the best ABA League’s centers. What a contest it will be!

Head to head in the regional league: In total 4:1; In Sremska Mitrovica 2:0.
