Victory of Basketball

This year seems to be very good for Croatian athletes.

This evening in Ljubljana KK Zadar has just defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv and thus became first Croatian club to become Goodyear League champion. Sceptics who questioned the whole concept of Croatian clubs participating in this competition (often branded "Neo-Yugoslav League" by rabid nationalists) are going to be silenced, at least for now.

Victory of KK Zadar is even more important, because the team was viewed as underdog. First against Red Star Belgrade, then against Maccabi, this team proved that Croatia can still produce some basketball talents.
