Mega Bemax players have opened a new season in the ABA League with a victory in Sremska Mitrovica against Cibona 95:88. An excellent game with a lot of attractive moves was provided by Vlatko CanCar, who had 17 points and 6 rebounds. At the press conference after the match, he pointed out that Mega showed a good game:

– It’s a big win for us at the start. We have set ourselves the goal of getting this match to get more relaxed into the next duel. This match with Cibona has already been archived and forgotten and we are turning to the game with Zvezda. The whole match we controlled the result, we should not relax, but we showed a good game and deservedly won,

Cancar said.

The coach of Mega Bemax, Dejan Milojević, pointed out that the team will further advance in the following season:

– I expected a tough match, because Cibona is a quality opponent, a combination of youth and experience, with an excellent coach on the bench. All players are good shooters for three points, Zoric does not kick the threes, but constantly puts on mid range field goals. They can spread the defense and thus make a lot of trouble. My young team played really great, we controlled the game defensively. We also had 20 points advantage, but since it’s a very young team, oscillations are expected. These oscillations we will try to reduce and I am sure that the season will keep the team progressing and that there will be fewer falls in the game. We made Cibona to get into our rhythm, to run with us, and it’s very difficult to run with us. When the opponent enters our rhythm, I think he has a small chance for a triumph. Let’s go on, in a couple of days, a match with Zvezda, and then we host Mornar. We will try to recover the team as soon as possible and we will try to push against Zvezda as much as possible,

Milojevic said.
