It’s been a challenging few weeks for Crvena Zvezda though they are back on track with a 111-75 victory on the road in Round 10 of the Adriatic League against FMP.
Zvezda fell to Buducnost last week and has suffered four back-to-back defeats in EuroLeague so this was a morale-boosting victory for the ABA League leaders.
Ognjen Dobric led the winners with 21 points and Marko Simonovic posted 19 points. Branko Lazic and Jordan Loyd followed with 15 and 12 points respectively.
On the other end of the court, Stefan Lazarevic led the home team with 15 points.
Rashawn Thomas in his only bucket of the night with eight seconds left lifted Partizan NIS to the win, 79-77, over Mega Soccerbet. Codi Miller-McIntyre scored a team-high 22 points. Promising big man Filip Petrusev registered 23 points and ten rebounds but was not enough for the visitors.
The Montenegrin clash between Buducnost and Mornar was also played as the former grabbed the win led by Justin Cobbs with 19 points.
