Mega Bemax failed to record their second win in the ABA league as Krka celebrated with 74:69 in Novo Mesto within the 6th round of the regional competition. Coach Dejan Milojevic’s players were mostly behind most of the match, but managed to get close to just 3 points from minus 12 in the last 2 minutes, but failed to catch the defensive rebound after missed shot of Cosey so Krka off the free throw line confirmed the victory.
At the post-match press conference, coach of Mega Bemax pointed out that his team had too many turnovers and missed lay-ups against Krka:
– Congratulations to Krka on her well-deserved victory. We had better energy today than usual, however, with too many turnovers, we missed 8 free throws, at least 10 lay-ups, and when you play such an important game against a solid team like Krka, you cannot hope to win. We even had a chance to reach the overtime, however, when we defended the attack, we did not close the paint, Josilo caught offensive rebound and decided the winner. I wish Krka all the best in the continuation of the championship and we have to turn to us, to start winning if we want to stay in the league,
