With a convincing triumph against the Sailor team 95:75, the Crvena Zvezda basketball players recorded their seventh victory in the ABA League this season and retained first place in the regional competition table.
The team of Yanis Sferopoulos against the lanternists from Bar came in a slow rhythm, so in some moments the game looked more like a friendly one than a serious competitive one.
In most of the meeting, the sailor maintained a ten-point deficit, mostly thanks to the red-white team’s well-mannered game in attack.
Zvezda already gained a double-digit advantage in the first part, and with Tobi’s three-pointer at the beginning of the third quarter, the home team’s lead in the “Aleksandar Nikolić” hall went to +20 for the first time.
Sferopoulos used the game to rest the main players, so Miloš Teodosić was not included in the list of scorers, while Marko Simonović, Dalibor Ilić, Stefan Lazarević, and Dalibor Ilić, who returned from injury, got a lot of minutes.
The most effective in the winning team was Mike Toby with 16 points, while Lazarevic, Simonovic, Gjedraitis and Nedovic added 11 each (9 assists).
In the Mariners’ team, the best were Antabioja Waller with 14 (all in the first half) and Alex Gavrilović with 13 points.
Zvezda is alone in the first place of the table with a score of 7-1, while Mornar is last with a performance of 1-7.
