Crvena Zvezda had no problems on their way to a 76-56 home win over Krka Novo Mesto as they improved to 20-2 at the top of the ABA League standings. Krka stayed down with 4-18.

An interesting fact was that the winning team didn’t have double-digit scorers this game, but it’s also worth noting that the entire roster received minutes. Only Ognjen Dobric and Aaron White have recorded more than 20 minutes of playing time.

Hot 16-year-old prospect Nikola Topic, the son of Milenko Topic who also played for Zvezda, got some minutes and used them well. He scored four points in 16 minutes while adding five assists, two rebounds, two steals before committing a foul.

However, he stole the show and put his name in the club’s history books. He set the new club record, becoming the youngest player to score points for Zvezda in the ABA League.

Nate Wolters scored nine points, as did Ognjen Kuzmic who also grabbed 11 rebounds. For Krka, Rok Stipcevic was the game’s only double-digit scorer with 17 points.
