Decisive game 3 of Cedevita vs Cibona series received huge publicity push thanks to the head coaches’ feud between Cedevita’s Aleksandar “Aco” Petrovic and Cibona’s Josip “Joke” Vrankovic.
Capacity crowd of 2200 spectators gathered in Sutinska Vrela and electricity was all over the place with both teams being aware that this is their most important game of the season so far.
Cibona’s “young guns” were again lead by G/F Bojan Bogdanovic (26 points, 6 boards, 4 assists), but this time they were simply no match for Cedevita’s experienced outside “fire power” anchored by the inside play of PF Andrija Zizic (21 points and 7 rebounds in 27 minutes).
By winning the game 92:80 Cedevita rolled to Croatian A1 League finals vs Zagreb CO which has previously eliminated Zadar by 2:0 playing without G Alex Renfroe and C Mario Kasun.
Game 1 of the “best-of-three” final series is scheduled for Saturday (18.45 CET).
