SBL: revenge time for Prievidza, victory in 2016 finals against Komarno

It's the fourth title for the club, 4-1 the final series

After the burning defeat in last season (3-4 the final series losing at home the decisive game) BC Prievidza got own revenge, winning the 2016 SBL finals 4-1 against the 2015 champions of MBK Rieker Komarno. It's the championship title number 4 for the team, after the successes in 1994, 1995 and 2012.

The champions (also semifinalists in Alpe Adria Cup) won the regular season with 26-6 record, beating during the post-season Nitra (3-0) and Esprit Kosice (4-2), and closing with a victory 101-79 in the last game of this year. Across for Komarno a great playoffs race, with a surprising 4-0 in the semifinal series against Inter Bratislava.

Not enough for the finalist the good performances of TJ Bannister (best assistman of the league with 8.5apg), PJ Alawoya (36 points in the only victory of the finals) and Bernard Thompson to reach again the success like in the 2014/15. Prievidza was dragged by a great series of Svetozar Stamenkovic: 20ppg and 9rpg with 27 of average ranking during the last 5 games, but has been important also the contribution from Igor Maric and Jaytornah Wisseh.

Two words also for the best player of the regular season: the veteran Radoslav Rancik of Inter Bratislava closed the year with 22.6ppg, 9.1rpg and 3.2apg, playing 38 games with 7 games over 30 points, 18 double-double and a season high of 38 points scored.
