AdmiralBet ABA League Round 4, Friday, 14 October 2022:
IGOKEA M:TEL – BORAC MOZZART
Where? Laktaši Sports Hall, Laktaši
Story of the game: In the opening game of the AdmiralBet ABA League Round 3, Igokea m:tel will be hosting Borac Mozzart at home in their Laktaši Sports Hall.
It will be a game of two squads that have entered the AdmiralBet ABA League season with defeats, but have significantly improved in the Round 2. While Igokea m:tel have celebrated a win on the road in Belgrade against Mega MIS, Borac Mozzart have lost by only a point against FMP Meridian.
This time, the only goal for each of them will be to grab a win. Igokea m:tel wish to jump into the upper half of the standings in case of a victory, while Borac Mozzart wish to escape the bottom by scoring their first win of the season.
Tradition has been clear so far. Igokea m:tel have never ever suffered a defeat by Borac Mozzart in the regional competition. Can the Čačak squad do it for the first time in Round 3 opener?
Tune in on Friday night and find out!
Match-up in focus: There will be an interesting head to head encounter in the backcourt of both squads, as Kendrick Ray will meet Hunter Hale. Both American players are among the driving forces for their respective squads, with Ray scoring 11 points and dishing out 4 assists per game so far in the AdmiralBet ABA League, while Hale has been averaging 15.5 points and 2.5 assists per game. Which one of them will shine brighter this time?
