By Eurohoops team/

Behind a team effort and with Alen Smailagic scoring 15 points, Partizan got the 91-84 win over Igokea in the semifinal of the ABA Super Cup.

It was a much easier game than the final score suggests with the winners getting a 27-13 lead in the first period and Igokea managing to cut the lead in the last quarter.

Partizan led even by 20 (51-31) at halftime and never felt any real pressure. Igokea got 23 points by Marko Jeremic, but that’s just a footnote.

Kevin Punter had 13 points for the winners, while newcomers from the NBA Frank Kaminsky (12 p.) and P.J.Dozier (11 p.) also delivered.

In the final Partizan will face SC Derby which prevailed over Budućnost VOLI (69-63) in the second semifinal.

For the classification race in the games between 5th and 8th place, Mega MIS has outgunned Cedevita Olimpija (88-75) and Zadar prevailed over FMP Soccerbet (77-71).
