It seems that some of teams who compete in ABA Adriatic league play this competition as they “MUST” to play. I don’t understand why you guys play in ABA Adriatic if you were not interested to play in this competition from the beginning?

It will be interesting after this season to see how many teams from Slovenia will play in next season of ABA Adriatic league. Probably Serbia will lose one place as well.

In this game for Cibona, Goran Suton scored 20 points and added 12 rebounds. Antwain Barbour and Damjan Rudez scored 16 points each.
