Igokea unexpectedly defeated against Union Olimpija

saso filipovski

Probably one of the worst games for Igokea in this season in ABA Adriatic league as Union Olimpija wins with final score 69-63 in Ljubljana.

Even I expected a lot from this game, it wasn’t that interesting but more than deserved win for Union Olimpija.

What is the reason for such a bad game and this defeat for Igokea? I am not sure but I have a doubt. Maybe playing in Euroleague is too big step for Igokea at this moment?

Maybe they decided to not finish at the first place in regular season in ABA Adriatic league and wait some other opportunity to play in Euroleague, in few years, if they ever get that opportunity again.

Or maybe it is all my imagination and reason for this defeat is something else, but I can’t remember such a bad presentation of Igokea in this season.

Too many turnovers, bad defense, problems in offense. Too many bad things to win even against Union Olimpija. And one thing that really bother me, they didn’t played with energy as they usually do.

Union Olimpija played well despite all problems, few players left team, financial problems as usual. Klemen Prepelic did a great job with 3-point shooting, 6-12, 50%.

Prepelic scored 22 points, Jaka Blazic scored 16 points, Dino Muric and Alen Omic scored 13 points each.

In Igokea Corsley Edwards did good job, and not sure if I have to mention anyone else. He scored 16 points, Branko Jorovic scored 12 points.

Igokea finished this game with 20 turnovers, with 65% for free-throws 15-23.
