Zagreb CO edged Cedevita 85:89 after the game 3 overtime and by sweeping the final series won it’s first ever Croatian title. This accomplishment locked Zagreb CO as #1 team in 2010/11 Croatian Euroleague race and made the dream come true for the “Ants” from Trnsko.
Yesterday, SG Kruno Simon led the way for Zagreb CO with 26 points and 10 rebounds, while “U.S. connection” consisting of G Alex Renfroe & PF Josh Heytvelt combined for 28 points and 14 rebounds. Future Croatian NT PG Dontaye Draper had 20 points for Cedevita on 8-14 shooting.
General impression is that Zagreb CO head coach Ivica Buric made the right replacements at the right moments and was able to fully exploit great roster potential which was on his disposal. Cedevita’s coach Aleksandar Petrovic was not able to match that during the entire series.
