The only one team from Bosnia and Herzegovina in ABA Adriatic league, Siroki, won against Cibona Zagreb in great game at front of 4.500 supporters in Pecara sport hall.

With this win, Siroki improved their score to very good 9 wins and 7 losses. They also came closer to final 4 possibilities even there are still many games to be played.

Cibona actually had no chance in this game. Siroki was the better team from the first minute and they deserved this win as well. With great percentage for 2 and 3 points, good engagement in defence and smart plays in offence Siroki outplayed Cibona.

Final score 84:75 (18:18, 17:18, 25:18, 24:21)

All those great results of Siroki are results of hard working coach Ivan Velic who is several years in this club as Assistant or Head coach. Probably one of the best coaches in Bosnia and Herzegovina at this moment.

Siroki is also the best club in Bosnia and Herzegovina beside Igokea. Since Bosna Sarajevo is in deep financial problems for years, those two teams represents Bosnia and Herzegovina in ABA Adriatic league. This year only Siroki due to bad score of Bosnian teams in previous season in ABA Adriatic competition. We will see what will happen after this season. Maybe, Bosnia and Herzegovina will have two teams in next ABA Adriatic season.
