The Red and Whites won against Tamiš in an interesting game, where both sides were playing on the same level but, at the end, Stefan Janković performed a three point jump shot 5 second before the end of the game and helped his team to celebrate.
Zvezda started the game better and the first three quarters belonged to the guests (20 – 25, 21 – 22 and 19 – 24). In the fourth one, the home team played an amazing defense against the team that played the EuroLeague and won that part with a score of 26 – 16, but that wasn’t enough for pulling another surprise in the group A (the first surprise was when Borac won against Crvena Zvezda).
The best scorer was James Feldeine with 22 points, while the shooter of the winning basket, Janković, finished the game with 14. Filip Čović added 11 and Taylor Rochestie was the last Red and White player with a double digit score (10 points).

Only in the second quarter the guests were better than Borac and that part of the game finished with a score of 16 – 21. In all the other quarters the home team dominated in all the aspects of the game and they made another proof that win against Zvezda wasn’t a surprise at all. Squad from Čačak was playing teamgame.
