Game recap: Cedevita Olimpija have rolled over Krka in the local derby in Stožice Arena in the AdmiralBet ABA League Round 1.

Key moments: Krka were the ones to start the game better, as they have been up 10:3 after 3 minutes of the game. However, Cedevita Olimpija fought back and by the end of the first quarter, they were already up with the score of 18:15. They have opened the second quarter with a 9:0 run afterwards and created themselves a comfortable 12-point lead (27:15) by 13th minute and as it turned out later in the game, Krka did not manage to fight their way back into the battle for a win
Man of the match: Newcomer in the Dragons lair Zach Auguste had a perfect debut in front of the fans in Stožice Arena, as he led his team to the win with 15 points, 5 rebounds, 3 steals and a block, which was enough for the valuation of 25 and the title of the Man of the Match.
Can’t trick the stats: Cedevita Olimpija have outrebounded Krka 35:28 and that was crucial for the smooth flow of their game as they dominated the court in Stožice Arena.
