Crvena Zvezda got the win in the semifinal which pretty much dictates the outcome of the final of the Serbian Cup, named after the great Radovoj Korac. Zvezda got the 83-73 win in the city of Nis and the ticket to the final

With coach Dusko Ivanovic being ejected after just the 12th minutes of action and Partizan building an 18-point lead in the first half, Zvezda thanks to the due of Luka Vildoza (15 points) and Faccundo Campazzo (12 p. 7 as.) find the way to prevail.

Nemanja Nedovic and Filip Petrushev added 14 each for the winning team, while James Nunnally  with 19 points was the top scorer of Partizan, Zach LeDay added 16 points and Mathias Lessort had one more double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds.

It was a tense game, which ended up interrupted in the 33rd minute of action due to the fans behavior.

However even among players there was more than tension as you can see in this Campazzo-Lessort incident. Vildoza went to defend his fellow Argentinian and while ultimately cooler heads prevailed, for a moment there was a lot of pushing and grabbing.

Both teams had fans on the gym, something usually not allowed due to security reasons and ultimately despite the impressive atmosphere in the stands, the referrees even discussed the possibility of an evacuation in order for the game to finish.

Zvezda will face Mega in the final, which in the other semifinal beat FMP 86-67.
