Kozuv playing for its pride, Academic Bultex 99 for the third place
The last game of the Regular season in the Balkan League is about to be played tonight. At 17:30 hrs local time in Gevgelija KK Kozuv will host BC Academic Bultex 99 as both teams will finish strong. The match will be broadcast LIVE on YouTube and SportMedia.tv.
Kozuv has nothing to play for but its pride. The Gevgelija team has no chance of moving away from 5th position but that doesn′t mean that it won′t try to win. Few days ago The Gevgelija side defeated MZT in its local league so the confidence is high. Igor Kesar is playing better and better and Williams, Karakolev and Ivelja are useful additions who can contribute for the team.
On the other side Academic needs to win this game in order to finish third. If the Plovdiv side does so, then it will meet KK Blokotehna in the Final 4 so this is something they′ll be looking for. Adriyan Sekulov will miss the game but the team has a lot other options. The team′s top scorer Vasil Bachev with the help of Troy Franklin will run the backcourt as the experience of Aleksandar Gruev will also be needed. Under the basket Olisemek, Vitkovic and Vujovic will try to stop Kozuv′s power and in the same time contribute in offense for Academic to have a chance to win.
