    Luka Asceric has been invited to compete in the world renowned Adidas EuroCamp in Treviso, Italy.


    Purdue men's basketball team will represent the United States at the World University Games from Aug. 19 to 30, 2017, in Chinese Taipei. This could have an impact on Sasha Stefanovic national team future and is something that would require a very detailed examination by the officials of the Basketball Federation of Serbia. I would not want you to be bird of ill omen, but if the World University Games are an official competition under FIBA guidelines I fear that, by playing in the event, Sasha will end up being ineligible to play later for Serbia.

    Korkmaz and Yurtseven have confirmed their participation in this tournament. Korkmaz refused to play in Summer League. I am short of words. If the federation is pressing these guys to count them in to the team, then they really behave shamefully, let the guys focus on their personal developments. After this tournament, Korkmaz will be called up to senior NT as well. So basically no room for refreshment. These guys have nothing to prove at this level anymore, by calling them up, you are also being unfair to other guys for whom joining the youth NTs is a great opportunity to gain confidence and experience and taking your career one step forward. Wrong decision, need to be reviewed immediately.

    Just saw that the champ is going to be held in Crete that is Greece. So this Greek generation for the second time in a row is going to play at home (2015 U18 EC was held in Greece as well).

Hopefully, he will get Turkish passport as soon as possible so that he can play in Turkish U-20 NT next summer. International game experience is what he is missing for now, he is consequently not a well-known player among scouts, he is the hidden gem of Turkish basketball as long as potential goes.

    The latest change of existing FIBA regulations on eligibilty and national status of players will definitively be a game-changer for National teams competitions, allowing countries to naturalize foreign young players. Gligorijevic and Osmani being the first notable cases.

    Turgut Atakol Tournament will be held in Istanbul between 4th and 8th of July. Montenegro, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia and Serbia will participate in the tournament apart from Turkey. I will follow few games in hall if I can find enough time. The tournament used to be a good reference before the main tournament.

    Turkey had 4 preparation games so far, it is impossible to deduce a point out of what we have seen, since the coach used freak rotation in these games, it seems as though the roles of players are indefinite. The team needs to gear up in time; except the leadership in team which is assigned to Korkmaz, no other players have an idea what they are doing. Well, it is understandable at many points but mainly can be said that the coach is carrying out a lot of experimental approach within the team to come up to the optimal level of this team. It is safe to say whomever will be dropped out of final roster will leave the camp not because of he is not enough good for this level, but because there is a high competition at his position. Everything will be way clearer when the incoming preparation tournament ends. Hopefully, we will manage to represent the high potential, have been marked at our team, on court.

    Friendly game :

    Serbia - Belgium 99:65 (22:19, 25:13, 24:14, 28:19)

    Serbia : Peno 11, Cirkovic 10, Kapetanovic 4, Jovanovic 8, Tanaskovic 8, Djordjević 9, Simanic 16, Kenic 5, Spasojevic 4, Stepanovic 8, Music 9, Vasic 7, Marinkovic DNP, Glisic DNP & Sljivancanin DNP.

    Belgium: Snijers 4, Buysse 15, Van Den Langenberg 0, Casero Ortis 18, Beaujean 4, Goffin 2, Mortant 6, Vanden Berghe 5, Lambrecht 8, Bronchart 4 & Kuijt DNP.



    Current serbian 15-man roster :

    Stefan Djordjevic (Crvena zvezda)
    Borisa Simanic (Crvena zvezda)
    Milos Glisic (Vrsac)
    Dimitrije Spasojevic (Vrsac)
    Slobodan Jovanovic (Partizan)
    Vanja Marinkovic (Partizan)
    Nikola Tanaskovic (Partizan)
    Stefan Kenic (Smederevo 1953)
    Novak Music (Smederevo 1953)
    Stefan Peno (FC Barcelona, Spain)
    Aleksa Stepanovic (Spars Sarajevo, Bosnia)
    Djordjije Sljivancanin (UNLV, NCAA)
    Luka Vasic (Avon Old Farms, HS)
    Nikola Cirkovic (Dinamik)
    Nemanja Kapetanovic (Mega)*

    * got a late call to replace Crvena Zvezda's 6'8" G/F Aleksa Radanov who skipped his national team duty for ''personal reasons''.

    Originally invited to U20 training camp, East Tennessee State recruit 6'10" PF/C Mladen Armus and Hofstra bound 6'6" SG/SF Matija Radovic declined the invitation to focus on their college admission tests, while Purdue's 6'5" incoming freshman SG Sasha Stefanovic has to play for his college at the World University Games (which, according Basketball Federation of Serbian officials, shouldn't affect his eligibilty to later play for Serbia). Lastly, Carnegie Schools- Riverside's intriguing 7-footer Luka Filipovic, one of top unsigned prospect in California, is sidelined by an injury.

    Nick Rakocevic has just joined our U20 national team in Subotica and is delighted to share his new jersey.

    I hope Stepanovic survives last cut, beside Simanovic probably the best prospect on this team.
