Serbia holds a 2-2 record in Group E of the qualifiers for the EuroBasket and will have to seal the deal in the upcoming two February games.
They are behind Georgia (4-0) against which they play on February 19th and in front of Finland (1-3) and Switzerland (1-3). Their last match will be against Switzerland on February 21st. The game will take place in Tbilisi’s Sports Palace in Georgia. Serbia lost to both teams previously.
With that in mind, coach Igor Kokoskov tried to get the best possible roster on board and he succeeded in convincing Anadolu Efes and Vasilije Micic. He will also count on Marko Guduric who plays under him in Fenerbahce as well as Filip Petrusev who’s been having a stellar season with Mega in the ABA League.
However, it should be noted that Efes is scheduled to play EuroLeague on February 18th against Olympiacos while Fenerbahce has a game on February 19th against Alba Berlin. Both at home. Additionally, Fener and Efes will face each other on February 26th.
The complete list of Serbia’s 16-man roster is as follows:
Vasilije Micic (Anadolu Efes), Ognjen Jaramaz (Partizan), Nikola Rebic (Nanterre), Nemanja Nenadic (FMP), Aleksa Avramovic (Estudiantes), Danilo Andjusic (JL Bourg), Luka Asceric (JL Bourg), Marko Guduric (Fenerbahce), Nemanja Dangubic (Partizan), Marko Lukovic (Split), Dalibor Ilic (Igokea), Marko Radovanovic (FMP), Miroslav Raduljica (Zhejiang Lions), Filip Petrusev (Mega), Dragan Apic (Buducnost), Stefan Djordjevic (FMP).
