Ivanović dominant again

For the first time in his career, young point guard Nikola Ivanović of Budućnost VOLI became the MVP of the round in ABA League. Just like in the previous round in Stožice against Union Olimpija, he was the key force, driving Budućnost to another victory. Against Szolnoki Olaj he spent 29 minutes on the court, scored 27 points, dished 4 assists, grabbed 3 rebounds and stole 2 balls, which was enough for the higest valuation of the round – 37. With 27 points the Montenegrin international also became the top scorer of this round.

Šarić, Klobučar and Marinović on top in specific categories

Again, Dario Šarić of Cibona deserves to be mentioned thanks to another excellent statistical achievement. On Tuesday in Zadar, where his team lost, he had a double double, but with 16 rebounds he earned the honour of the top rebounder of the round.

Jaka Klobučar of Krka and Marko Marinović of Radnički are the top passers of the round. Each one of them dished 9 assists in the games against Široki that Krka won and against Partizan NIS, which Radnički has lost.
