    Default 2015 U16 European Championship

    One thing all the sons of famous players seem to have in common is genetic predisposition. One thing 6'9" Koprivica jr and 6'8" Pecarski jr also have is talent. Although they will be one year younger than most of the competition, both are expected to be Serbia's frontcourt force at the 2015 U16 European Championship.

    Bosnia U16 and Croatia U16 played two friendlies against each other in Sarajevo. Both teams played without several main players (notably NBA prospect Kresimir Nikic on one side and Sikiras on the other). One noteworthy detail is the presence of 6'8" Dejan Marjanac (2000) who played for Serbia U15 ealier this season on the Bosnian roster. He's not a big deal, though.

    In Game 1, hosts won 99:95
    Bosnia : Stojsic 2, Ivankovic 2, Jankovic 15, Radan 1, Cerkezović 10, Campara 21, Musa 45, Ovcina 3.
    Croatia : Jordano 8, Vidovic 10, Jularic 17, Saric 2, Mihalic 9, Nakic 17, Omrcen 2, Vrgoc 3, Bajo 18, Dubroja 4, Balinic 4.

    In Game 2, guests won 110:74
    Bosnia : Stojsic 2, Ivankovic 9, Sabljic 2, Jankovic 1, Radan 4, Sertovic 5, Cerkezovic 10, Campara 15, Musa 26.
    Croatia : Jordano 17, Vidovic 5, Jularic 2, Saric 17, Mihalic 12, Nakic 12, Omrcen 10, Vrgoc 19, Jankovic 2, Bajo 14.

    Njegos Sikiras last year's decision to pick Bosnia over Serbia is all the more incomprehensible in light of the fact that a dozen members of his wider family have been savagely killed by the Bosnian Muslim army in May 1992 in the village of Grahoviste near Sarajevo.

    France's Jaylen Hoard (16 pts) and Bosnia's Njegos Sikiras (14 pts) named co-MVP at the Jordan Brand International game yesterday.

    Strangely, Hoard isn't in the U16 French team that has started its 2015 international campaign.

    Like Spurs' PG Tony Parker and FC Barcelona's SG Edwin Jackson, Jaylen Hoard is another French player whose father is an African American baller who played professionally overseas. His dad Antwon, a former Murray State Racer, spent almost all his entire career in France.

    It's also the case for Australians Dante Exum (NBA draftee Cecil Exum) and Ben Simmons (Dave Simmons), or Canadians Andrew Wiggins (former NBAer Mitchell Wiggins), Xavier Rathan-Mayes (former NBAer Tharon Mayes) and Trey Lyles (former NBAer Thomas Lyles).

    Ethnic Serb from Bosnia Njegos Sikiras used to part of Serbia's youth national teams program back in 2013 but later decided to flip side on the advice of his former Buducnost Bijeljina coach Dario Cojic whose wife Dragana was later invited by the Basketball Federation of Bosnia to visit United States as part of a traineeship for Bosnian coaches.

    Greece won the Bellegarde tournament last weekend, beating Turkey, Czech Republic and host France. All clear wins for Greek kids, except a close game with Turkey (63-61). Other Greece results, 73-58 vs Cze and 63-40 vs Fra.
    Final standing: Gre (3-0), Fra (2-1), Tur (1-2), Cze (0-3).

    For Greeks excelled Kambouridis, the team's high scorer, top rebounder Virlas and Giannaras.

    Europians looked promising in game. Liked Moraitis, Sikiras and Santos most.

    For Croatia I guess we have nice prospects in 99. Besides hyped Nikic who is big prospect for future for sure. Bajo shows great potential. Looked like monster, but must work on his skills and game alot. Intresting comentators said scouts tallk he has most long term upside out there

    Jordi Bertomeu sucks!

    As expected, without most of our best abroad-playing ballers (Koprivica, Pavicevic, Marjanovic, Nikolic, Jovicic, etcetera).

    Notwithstanding that, Nenad Trunic's first selection seems to have more upside potential than Dejan Mijtovic's one which played earlier this season at the U16 International Tournament of Konya, especially on point guard (Skoric & Virijevic) and power forward positions (Pecarski, Kovacevic & Komazec).

    Despite not being named MVP, 6'8 combo forward Bogdan Nedeljkovic ('00) had an impressive showing at the recent Serbia's U15 Final Tournament held in Kraljevo.

    By the way, I've been told a while ago that 6'9" power forward Aleksa Komazec's father Jovica is a distant cousin of retired croatian national team player Arijan.

    Bosnia and Herzegovina won the Travnik tournament, defeating Serbia, Slovenia and a Zagreb selection (CRO) in final.

    Serbia narrowly lost to BiH 56-52 and to Slovenia 82-76 and finished 5th beating a Travnik selection.

    Excellent performance of BiH's Sani Čampara (24 pts vs SLO and 21 vs Zagreb) and Emir Čerzeković (16 pts vs SLO, 12 vs SRB and 11 vs Zagreb). Amar Barukčija also scored 15 pts in the last game.

    No ramblings, only facts. I guess you don't value my genealogy work on retired and current basketball players from former Yugoslavia because some facts clash with your national pride, but it's not a big deal.

    By the way, Metalac Valjevo's 6'2" PG Marko Sarenac (late 1999) from Ljubovija (Western Serbia), who has gone through the tryout process of the Basketball Federation of Serbia for years, played for Bosnia at the above-mentioned U16 tournament in Travnik.

    Luxembourg's U16 6'0" G Ben Kovac (2000) ended up top scorer of the tournament.

    Marko Pecarski and Bogdan Nedeljkovic's moves to Mega Leks are said to be "done deals".

    I saw our 18 players prelim roster, and if I'm not wrong, there is only one player born in 2000 there. It's Nikola Đaković. And it's not suprise, I'm pretty sure he will even make final 12 players roster. Kid had 17 points per game in Bosnian U18 league where he played against three years older player than him. Of course duo Musa & Sikiraš are dominant players of this team, he will have his full opportunity to shine on U16 Championship 2016.
