The third team in Group F of Delasport Balkan League, along with Hapoel Gilboa Galil and BC Beroe, is the debutant KK TFT. The Skopje side managed to take the last place for Stage 2 coming from Group E and now will continue to enjoy its ride in the competition. The team will start with a home game against BC Beroe on February 24th which is of a big importance in the battle for the Final Four.

TFT proved out to be a good home team having all four of its games in its gym. The only loss came in a heartbreaking overtime against BC Akademik Plovdiv so it's fair to be said that at home is where TFT's strength is. In order to have a chance for the Final Four, the team will have to improve its performances away and especially in the game in Stara Zagora which may prove to be decisive.

TFT waited for its last game to secure qualification for Stage 2 when it defeated Ibar at home. A more decisive game was the previous one as the 18-point win against Teodo turned out vital as the Skopje team took advantage in the head to head games against the Tivat squad having lost by 15 before that.

TFT is a team that relies a lot on its foreign players and of course they are led by the MVP of Stage 1 - Tyron Harris. He is averaging 20.7 points and 7.9 assists in ten games and is a key reason for the team's success. He is however having a big help from Australian Lachlan Anderson who is a good scorer and is averaging 20.6 points. By adding to them Landrius Horton who is having 12.4 points in 7 games, Amir Smith with 9.3 poitns and 10.3 rebounds and we can see that those are the players moving TFT forward. We however can't underestimate the young local players like Strahil Nikolov for example who is averaging 7.0 points and 3.1 rebounds.

Overall TFT has every right to be happy with its first season in the competition. Head coach Boro Smilkovski is however very ambitious and since the team reached to that stage, then it's only natural that they'll aim to go even higher. Whether that'll happen, we'll know at the end of March, but one thing is clear - TFT won't go out without a fight.
