Vlado Micov did it again, making the winning three in a 77-74 Olimpia’s win


Vlado Micov, aka The Professor, did it again. With a very close game on the line, Cremona missed two contested close range shots, Micov found himself open in the corner with the time expiring. Michael Roll made the smart pass and the corner three found nothing but the net for a 77-74 Olimpia win. Micov scored 22 points, 17 of them after halftime. He missed some shots to close the game earlier, but didn’t miss the most important one. With no Sergio Rodriguez, with Nemanja Nedovic playing at the point for long stretches, Olimpia tried to take control early, led by as many as 13 points in the first half, but couldn’t put Cremona away. In the second half, it was Cremona’s turn to try to take control of the game. The defense kept Olimpia in contention, then allowed the team to get away late in the game, but some missed shots were decisive in keeping Cremona dangerous. Until, Micov’d dagger, the second this season after the huge three made in Venezia. “We played a good first half, with too many turnovers that cost us dearly – Coach Ettore Messina said -, the start of the third quarter was bad, but the effort was not, we kept them at 13 and no threes in the fourth. At the end we were good and lucky too. Micov made a great shot.”
