Partizan will play another regional league classic (against Cibona) in “Aleksandar Nikolić” Sports Hall in the Round 7 of the ABA League. The Croatian team, same as the Black and Whites, have 3 wins and 3 losses and both teams are hungry for another victory. The Home team will have the crowd by their side and, as it is well-known, the fans are always the sixth player. “Again, we need Pionir (also known as “Aleksandar Nikolić” Hall) to be sold-out. We are very young and we need help. We are working hard every day and that hard work needs to be put in action, and it is always easier with support. It will be a tough game, they are experienced and we are not. And if we will play their kind of a game, we won’t be on the right track. If we create our play we will have more
