One-way traffic in favor of Crvena Zvezda Meridianbet in Stark Arena on Sunday.

Blowing out FMP Soccerbet, 87-54, was highlighted by Brazilian Yago Dos Santos posting a 17-point, 14-assist double-double.

The 24-year-old guard also recorded five rebounds and two steals in Round 17 of the AdmiralBet ABA League Regular Season. Making 4/5 from beyond the arc, Branko Lazic shared the game-high 17 points. Milos Teodosic (hamstring), Nemanja Nedovic (oblique), and Nikola Topic (knee) remained on the injury list.

The team coached by Giannis Sfairopoulos earned a double-digit lead in the first quarter and never looked back, despite the visitors cutting into the deficit during the second quarter. Over the last ten minutes, the separation ballooned over 30 points.

The reigning champions of Serbia improved to 15-2 in the regional league with archrival Partizan Mozzart Bet hoping to go up to 13-4 with a home win against Mega MIS tomorrow, Monday. Heading to Round 23 of the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague Regular Season, the Belgrade outfits visit ALBA Berlin and host Zalgiris on Thursday and Friday, respectively, before facing each other in the ABA League next Sunday.
