ABA League Round 8, Saturday, 23.11.2019:


Where? Leon Štukelj Hall, Novo mesto

Where? 20:00

Story of the game: Another important clash is coming up for Krka and Igokea in Novo mesto. The squad of the Dolenjska region will be looking for a victory against Igokea, which would be their fourth win in eight rounds and that would put them in the middle of the standings with a 50% success rate.

On the other side, Igokea are in a bit tougher position, as they are currently holding only one victory in their hands after seven rounds of the ABA League season and winning this game is a must for them in order to escape the danger zone near the bottom of the standings, where currently only Zadar are placed beneath them, winless.

When it comes to the battles of the two sides in Novo mesto, they have always been tight, with Krka winning 4 games against Igokea in Leon Štukelj Hall and Igokea 3.

And how about the current shape? Krka have done slightly better than Igokea recently, as they have won 2 of their last five games and Igokea one. Also, Krka have lost their last game, while Igokea have lost the last two. How will it be this time around?

Match-up in focus: Glenn Cosey or Rashad Vaughn? That’s the question ahead of the game in Novo mesto. Both Americans are currently the top scorers of their teams, with Cosey averaging 17 points per game and Vaughn 16.6. However, Cosey is also the top passer of his team with 4.1 assists dished out per game, while Igokea do not depend on Vaughn as much in this category. So it is pretty clear that by stopping Cosey, Vaughn would make a great job for Igokea on their way towards the win. But will he succeed in doing so? Let’s watch the game and find out!

Head to head in the regional league: In total 6:8; In Novo mesto 4:3.
