KK Kozuv recorded its second win of the season in the Balkan League. The Gevgelija team hosted KB Bashkimi in Gevgelija and took 90-74 victory. The home side did very good in the second quarter when it managed to pull away and after the break controlled the match. 

 

With that result Kozuv now has 2 wins and 6 defeats and still has chances for the Final Four. However for that to happen the team needs to win all four of its remaining games and Blokotehna to lose four of its five left. On 26 of February both teams will meet and everything will be decided in that match. On the other side Bashkimi now has 1-9 record and the team′s next match will be home against Barsy Atyrau.

 

After ten close minutes Kozuv led by just 3 points but everything changed in the second quarter. In the first six minutes of it the hosts made a 22-5 run which gave them 20-point lead and it remained in that range until the break.

 

Kozuv kept the big difference for a long time but the third period finished on an 8-2 for the visitors who closed the gap to 12 points. They however couldn′t do more in the fourth quarter as the home side controlled the game and held on for the win.

 

Igor Kesar had a very good game for the hosts with 33 points and 7 rebounds. Nikola Karakolev also did well by adding 22 points as Devaugntah Williams had 12 points, 8 rebounds and 5 assists.

 

The visitors were led by Steven Haney with 24 points. Lamar Wofford-Humphrey had a double-double with 19 points and 15 rebounds as Gazalli Makasqi scored 12 points. Bashkimi missed two of its best players - Jordan Capps and Drilon Hajrizi due to injury.
