Day when Basketball died in Serbia

radivoj korac cup

We couldn’t imagine better atmosphere in overcrowded Jezero Sport hall in Kragujevac. According to different sources, more than 2.000 people left outside since there were no free space inside.

Partizan mt:s and Crvena Zvezda Telekom started strong, with good rhythm and a lot of energy. We saw good defense on both sides.

First quarter finished with result 25-22 for Crvena Zvezda Telekom, and good indicator of things on the court, Crvena Zvezda Telekom were bit better.

Igor Rakocevic led Red and whites in first half, with fast plays, assists. On the other side, Partizan mt:s played little more organized in offense, with patience.

Second half, even game, quarter finished with 16-16, and total after 20 minutes 41-38 for Red and whites. There were some nervous in last few minutes in second quarter.

Igor Rakocevic scored 15 points for Crvena Zvezda Telekom in first half, and Vladimir Lucic scored 9 for Partizan mt:s.

BUT, instead of writing about game in second half and finally about who won Radivoj Korac Cup trophy, I am writing that hooligans decided to stop this Final game.

According to unconfirmed informations someone activated fire extinguisher, and there were some brawls between “fans” of Partizan mt:s and Crvena Zvezda Telekom, and police forces.

I don’t really want to write about this, and I am already pissed off so much about all theses happenings.

Game will be continued tomorrow at 19.00 CET probably without crowd. This is such a big shame for Serbian Basketball.

I don’t really care anymore who will win in this Final game, I don’t care anymore about favorite team, this is all ridiculous.
