Cedevita Olimpija basketball players host Cibona in the 22nd round of the ABA League. The Dragons have lost their last three matches played in all competitions.
It is an exciting time for the people of Ljubljana. Ten days ago, they lost to Lietkabelis and were left without a chance to qualify for the European Cup elimination rounds. Then they lost heavily on the road in Zadar, and after this defeat, the club’s management parted ways with head coach Jurica Golemec. He was replaced by his assistant Miro Alilović. It will soon be clear if he will lead the team until the end of the season, but he sat on the Dragons’ bench for the first time during the week in the European Cup, when the Slovenian champions lost in Ulm.
The Dragons have already qualified for the playoffs of the ABA League, which the Wolves are also fighting for. The Zagreb club, otherwise a two-time European champion, has major financial problems. Due to unpaid obligations, the players even went on strike, which was called off before the game.
