ABA League Round 6, Friday, 2.11.2018:
Where? Laktaši Sports Hall, Laktaši
Story of the game: On Friday night, Igokea and FMP will be opening the ABA League Round 6 with their game in Laktaši. The memories of Igokea squad of the last Friday, when they have downed Krka convincingly at the home court is still fresh within the Nenad Trajković’s squad and they will to their best to repeat it and to get closer to the Playoffs zone and as far away from the danger zone at the bottom of the standings as possible.
On the other hand, FMP currently share the same position in the standings as Igokea, but they will be travelling to Laktaši after a defeat in the last round’s game against their city rivals Crvena zvezda mts. For sure, they will be looking to bounce back and score the win… that would mean basically the same for them, as for Igokea.
Match-up in focus: Experience against youth – Sava Lešić against Dragan Apić! The two big men have been shining lately for their teams and we need to wait and see which one would have a better game this time around. Both are the top scorers of their teams (Lešić is averaging 7.4 and Apić 5.8 rebounds per game), while Apić is also the top scorer of FMP (21.4 points per game), while Lešić comes second at Igokea’s side (16.4 points per game).
Head to head in regional league: In total 2:2; In Laktaši 1:1.
