quarter's
thursday:
Zlatorog Laško - Krka
Helios - Slovan

friday:
Koper - Zagorje
Olimpija - TCG Mercator

coach of Koper, Rade Mijanovič hopes he'll meet Olimpija in the semi's and not TCG loka, since he believes Olimpija will be eliminated by 40 minutes of zone defense :D

I have no idea who'll get in the finals from the thursday's group, all 4 teams are relatively equal. Helios should have an edge, but considering their performances in adriatic league I wouldn't be surprised if they'll lose to Slovan/Krka or Laško after leading for 36 minutes of the game. Mance if in good shape should pan out as a good reinforcement for them.

Slovan has a completely different team than at start of the season, for this level they've added some good reinforcements as Jokič, Petrov and Johnson- when they'll get along the rest of the team they'll be dangerous to anyone... of course they already f.u. the situation in AdriaticL as well, those players were brought too late imho.

Laško is spending surprisingly a lot of money, Krka is spending less but managed to built a surprisingly cohesive team.

If it was up to me, I of course hope Krka would make it to the finals.

as for the other group, Olimpijja should get all the way.

Predrag Milović... not Mijanovič. Rade is coach at Krka.

I hope for Krka - Olimpija finals. We need "derby" back. :)

100% definately. even if I am an Olimpija fan I'd prefer Krka winning the cup if that would help them build a team like in the old days...

Great for Krka, Balažic and Marcelić obviously destroyed Zlatorog by themselves, i'm happy for them.

As for Helios - Slovan, Helios being eliminated would be one more sign in the line, that maybee... just maybee Martič should get replaced. It all indicates that Helios GM Gorjan is very tolerant man when it comes to coaches, but this loss would, along with several losses in AdriaticL in the last few minutes, put the last nail in the coffin imho, that's why I was hoping Slovan would pass them. Now it's on Krka to do that.

Too bad, Helios was just too strong for Krka. They had a bad day in my opinion. Especially Sorrentine.

Krka : Helios Domžale 70:89 (54:66, 36:41, 18:27)

lack of experience hurted them.... along with some obvious referee mistakes- the outcome wouldn't neccesarily be different, but if Krivec commited bouth intentionals, there should also be an intentional on him running the fast break (actually the only foul in the game deserving intentional imho) and on Soldo... than the foul + basket they counted to Janža/Krejič that was completely identical to situation with Krivec (again) just that he didn't even earn freethrows, let alone the 2 points for FG.
The margin isn't indicating on what was going on on court. Eventhough Helios did deserve to win, I am glad Krka is improving... while our referees are staying the good old "kekci" for as long as I remember...

Luka Koper : Union Olimpija 61:87 (43:66, 27:44, 12:30)

So, we have good "old" Helios - Olimpija finals again... it's time for payback. Milič sprained his ankle and probably won't play in finals. Dončič got ejected and also won't play tomrrow.

Union Olimpija won the finals easily without Gorenc, Milič and Dončič. Brilliant game by Dragič in the finals.
