Zvezda se časno oprostila od EL

Red Star bids a Euroleague farewell

Crvena zvezda Telekom, izgubila je večeras i treću utakmicu protiv moskovskog CSKA u okviru Top 8 faze Evrolige. Poraz rezultatom 71:78, označio je i kraj učešća crveno-belih u Evroligi. Odličan početak, bio je u kontrastu sa nešto slabijom završnicom, koja ipak nije umanjila ukupni učinak srpske ekipe, znatno skromnijeg budžeta.

Pionir promenio ime

Beogradska Hala Pionir, ikona balkanskog sporta, nosiće naziv po legendarnom košarkaškom treneru i inovatoru Aleksandru Nikoliću. Profesor Nikolić se smatra ocem jugoslovenske košarke i zaslužan je za brojne klupske i reprezentativne uspehe. Bivšoj državi je kao selektor obezbedio dva zlata, četiri srebra i jednu bronzu.
