KK Kumanovo 2009 is the team which finally managed to stop BC Akademik Plovdiv. The North Macedonian side won 86-71 at home to hand the Plovdiv team its first loss of the season in Delasport Balkan League. It was the first half which was the decisive one as the hosts took a big advantage and they controlled the difference after. This result puts Kumanovo at 2-2 record while Akademik is at 6-1. Next week Kumanovo will visit Ibar in Montenegro while the next game for the Bulgarian team will be in 2021.

The game was really close for the most part of the first quarter but in the last two minutes the hosts made a 7-2 run to go up by 7 points. The run continued in the first part of the second quarter when Kumanovo scored the first 12 points in a row to go up by 19. From that moment on the home team controlled the difference and never allowed Akademik to think of a comeback. The visitors were trying but couldn't really come close and therefore lost for a first time.

Gorjan Markovski had a great game for the winners finishing with 27 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Corey Raley-Ross added 19 points and 8 rebounds while also making 9 turnovers while Aleksandar Andrejevic had 15 points.
