Serbian forward Stevan Jelovac passed away Sunday, after suffering a stroke in mid-November and battling in the intensive care unit for several weeks.

The news of his passing has united the basketball world around the globe, with teammates, players, teams, and organizations remembering his legacy.

As Eurohoops, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends, by remembering the brightest night of his career.
