Players of Mega Leks will on Friday 11th of November from 20:00 continue competing in the ABA league within the 9th round game against Igokea in Laktasi.

Coach of Mega Leks Dejan Milojevic said the team expects a tough match on Friday:

– Igokea is a quality and experienced opponent and we expect a tough match in Laktasi. The last game they won away in Zadar, before that played matches on one ball against Zvezdda and Buducnost. We tied three games on one ball, which we did not win but we have to stay positive. We train very hard and if we play good defense against Igokee, I believe that we will get some luck and get to victory in Laktasi,

Milojevic said.

Mega Leks and Igokea in the ABA league so far met six times with the score 4-2 for Igokea. Last competitive match was in the 19th round of ABA league last season when Igokea won in Laktasi with 80:75.

– We work hard at practices and I believe that it will soon show results. Igokea is a quality opponent but I believe in our team. All starts from the defense so if it is at the required level, we will have our chances of triumph that would meant a lot to us, in results and confidence of the team. We look ahead, and I believe it’s time to win,
