The Regular Season in ABA League is over and Buducnost, Crvena Zvezda, Cedevita, plus Mega Leks are now waiting for the playoffs. Meanwhile, Sutjeska became the second team, after Tajfun that is relegated.

It is not an exaggeration to say that all other matches were overshadowed by the clash between Olimpija Lubjana. A battle of monumentally epic proportions which would shame even”Ben Hur”, since it took no less than four (!) overtimes in order to find out the winner. After 60 minutes of playing time, the Slovenians were the ones to smile thanks to some key free throws by Ronalds Zakis and Miha Lapornik. But generally, the hero for Olimpija was no other than Sava Lesic with his 31 points and 21 rebounds.

Crvena Zvezda took an important win by which they sealed the second place in the standings, thus gaining home court advantage for the semifinals. Buducnost completed their regular season obligations in a style fitting to the first team in the standings, by winning the indifferent Cibona.
