    Serbia : Krtinić, Uskoković 7, Pavićević, Šarenac, Vulikić 4, Nedeljković, Marjanović 7, Matić 16, Novaković 3, Tadić 3, Stajčić 1, Pecarski 11, Mihajloski, Ristanović 4, Simić 3.

    6'8" Boris Ristanović should blossom in a big way down the road.

    I don't think those kind of losses are tragic, especialy on U16 level, where situation is pretty different from other groups. Players don't yet have the consistency we expect from older players at that age. And most good players I know didn't yet neccesarily differentiate from others at U16 level.

    I am getting great news from our U16 team. They won all 8 games that they have played in preparation games. Ahmet Can Duran bursts into prominence in these games. Another prospect, yeah he is a center too.

    Also maturity level plays huge part at this stage. That's why often we see top players at U-16 endig as averge prospects or nowhere, while bench warmers or guys that didn't even make cut turn out as star prospects
    Jordi Bertomeu sucks!

    Except Tauras Jogela(LOL), after 2005, the MVPs of U16 championships are good selections who are having good careers or will have soon. I agree with you on maturity level and its impact on game but at least for MVPs, winning this award is a kind of sign that these guys will have solid careers.

    Agreed with both.
    One of the biggest issues with the talent pool europe is having is a premature selection as at the age of 16 it really takes an expert eye with quite some luck to understand how that player might evolve in the next few years. And players born in december, november, october can at that point be visibly less developed physicaly at that age on the top of that as well.

    Slovenia is in division B, we're kind of traditionaly bad at the U16 stage.
    I'm glad to see the tradition goes on, Ivo Daneu was one of the ex-Yu legends and a Fiba hall-of-famer, Jaka Daneu played the backup PG in Olimpija in the 90ies, while his son Jure Daneu is called up to U16 NT now. With all those brothers, sons, grandsons etc our bball is all about families obviously

    Differentiate at U16 levels may indicate an early peak.

    Serbia lost its second friendly game to Germany 82:85

    Serbia : Krtinić 4, Pavićević, Kovačević, Šarenac, Vulikić 12, Nedeljković, Marjanović 15, Matić 11, Novaković, Tadić, Stajčić, Pecarski 7, Latinović 7, Mihajloski 12, Petrušev 13, Ristanović 1, Simić.

    Germany : Bonga 18, Buck 2, Drescher 16, Döding 4, Hadenfeldt 5, Herkenhoff 9, Luyeye 4, Šerić 8, Weidemann 7, Wendler 4, Wolf 2, Pinchuk 6.

    Shameful that Nikola Mišković (Mega Leks), Balsa Koprivica (USA), Danilo Petrović (Virtus Bologna), Mihailo Jovičić (Real Madrid) and Lazar Nikolić (Stella Azzurra Roma) declined their selection.

    18 players who are right now on preperations in Sarajevo:

    1 - Sani Čampara (1999, SPARS Sarajevo), Aleksandar Stojišić (1999, Partizan TS), Miladin Vlačić (1999, Budućnost Bijeljina)

    2 - Džanan Musa (1999, Cedevita Zagreb), Aljoša Janković (1999, Partizan TS), Adi Alikadić (1999, Radnički Goražde), Eman Šertović (1999, KOŠ Sarajevo)

    3 - Lazar Mutić (1999, Real Madrid), Emir Čerkezović (1999, Sloboda Tuzla), Nikola Đaković (2000, Budućnost Bijeljina), Srđan Kočić (1999, SPARS Sarajevo), Amar Barukčija (1999, KOŠ Sarajevo)

    4 - Njegoš Sikiraš (1999, Stellazzurra), Timur Ovčina (1999, KOŠ Sarajevo), David Kovačević (1999, Partizan TS), Ivan Sabljić (1999, Široki)

    5 - Semin Burko (1999, Čelik Zenica), Vedran Mirković (1999, KOŠ Sarajevo)


    But don't take those positions too seriously, Sikiraš will be a center sometimes, and some of guys listed as small forwards will sometimes play power forward position.

    He made double-double (20+13) in just 15 min against Ukraine in a game that Lithuania won by 56...Anyway, he should be in the squad. Other 2 top performances of that game were also made by bigs. It should be quite strong frontcourt.
