Mega Mozzart was defeated in the 23rd round of the ABA League by Mornar-Barsko zlato with 70:83 (10:27, 23:13, 18:20, 19:23). In this match, Mega simply did not have a solution for the masterful guest’s point guard Vladimir Mihailovic, who went down in history with 46 points as the best scorer in one match of the regional league. When the numerous oscillations of the young Mega team, a weaker defensive jump and a significant number of missed free throws added to that, the defeat in the duel with the experienced team from Bar could not be avoided.
At the press conference after the game, Mega Mozzart’s coach Vladimir Jovanovic stated that his team failed to consolidate the ranks:
– Regardless of the personal points we have, I expected a far better game. They took the lead from the third, fourth minute and with our carelessness we had eight lost balls in the first quarter which is too much, while they had dominance in the jump in attack, which gave them confidence in the shot for three points. They gained a noticeable difference, and we got nervous, which kept us going throughout the match. We failed to consolidate the ranks, so this is a well-deserved victory for Mornar, and we turn to the next match,
