"Mega is always a difficult opponent. They play quickly, aggressively, and they never give up, no matter the situation on the court. On the other hand, we want to continue playing on two fronts in the right way. We are all aware that the stakes are high for tomorrow's game, but we always put everything on black and white, and I believe that that approach will bring us an important victory", Gagić pointed out.

His first game as the coach of Partizan NIS, the black and whites' coach, Andrea Trinchieri led against Mega Bemax in the 6th round of the regional championship.

"It look like it has been 6 months since the first game, bu it hasn't, it's been less than three. We have an extremely important game coming up. Compared to our first game, Mega changed the team, but their style has remained the same. They play aggressive defense, press, and we have to match their energy in the right way", said Trinchieri.
