Story of the game: AdmiralBet ABA League returns to Ljubljana as Cedevita Olimpija are about to host Borac Mozzart in the first round of the new season.
Cedevita Olimpija have high ambitions for the 2022/23 campaign. Last season they were one win away from advancing to the Finals, while in this one they will try to make a step forward. That is why the Dragons were pretty active during the summer transfer market and they made some big signings that may make them stronger than a year ago.
On the other side, Borac Mozzart’s biggest strength at the start of the new season is that they have managed to keep most of their last-season roster. The players know each other very well and they should be ready to show the real potential of this team already in the opening round.
The only bad thing for Borac is that they have never managed to beat Cedevita Olimpija before in AdmiralBet ABA League. The two sides met four times in the regional league and the Ljubljana side triumphed in each of those games.
Match-up in focus: In the following match, it will be interesting to see the duel between the two amazing scorers – Yogi Ferrell (Cedevita Olimpija) and Hunter Hale (Borac Mozzart).
Ferrell was the 4th best scorer of Cedevita Olimpija in the past season, while Hunter Hale was the top scorer of Borac in the 2021/22 campaign.
Head-to-head score in the regional league: In total 4:0; In Ljubljana 2:0.
