Igokea Team News
In the previous two seasons, Igokea appeared in the ABA League playoffs twice and goal will be identical this time as well. This club has profiled itself as one of the most stable in this region and they also achieved good results in the FIBA Champions League recently.
During this summer, Igokea didn’t change too many things in its roster. Kendrick Ray and Bryant Crawford replaced James Robinson and Markel Starks in backcourt. Mario Nakic will play in Aleksa Radanov position, plus Dusan Tanaskovic has also signed. The most important thing is that head coach Dragan Bajic is still there. He has been a symbol of Igokea for years and when he is on the bench, a good result is a constant. Once again, this team main characteristic will be a good defense and a patient offense.
Igokea will open new season at home against Mornar. In the past, they had a lot of success in Laktasi against this rival and they hope that will be the case now. If they are up to the task defensively, they should be able to win.
Mornar Team News
After several years in which Mornar invested a lot of money, last season the finances were drastically reduced. They had an extremely cheap roster by their standards and that was enough only for ninth place at the end of the season.
Between two seasons, a lot of players were changed. Only Vladimir Mihailovic remains among the leaders. Some of the new names are Fatts Russell, Marko Pecarski, Dalonte Brown, Petar Vujacic, Cheikh Diong and Luka Scuka. Head coach Mihailo Pavicevic will need time to arrange everything the way he envisioned, but the fact is that Mornar once again has a team for middle of the table. Eight teams will play in the playoffs this season, so it’s a chance for club from Bar.
Much better teams than Mornar often failed to win in Laktasi. All things considered, they will count on being able to surprise Igoke with a good three-point shot. There wasn’t much material for scouting since this will be opening round, so even the opponents don’t know what Mornar will look like.
Last season, H2H between these two teams was 1-1. Igokea won in Laktasi 70:57, and Mornar triumphed in Bar 82:76. In total, they played seven times in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Igokea leads 5-2 in those games.
All players are available for both coaches.
