Montenegrin League finals, Game 3: May 18, 2009
Buducnost - 2008-09 Montenegrin championBuducnost Podgorica wrapped up its third consecutive Montenegrin League and Cup double Monday sweeping the playoffs finals 3-0. Buducnost bested Primorje 97-72 in Game 3 at Moraca Hale behind 18 points from Nemanja Gordic. Milos Bojovic added 17 points, Vladimir Dragicevic netted 15 and grabbed 7 rebounds. Marko Popovic scored 12 and Masko Simonovic 10. Boris Lalovic led Primorje with 25 points plus 6 rebounds and Goran Pejovic added 22 points. The game was closer than the 25-point margin of victory would indicate. Primorje started well thanks to Lalovic and trailed by just 2 after 10 minutes, but Buducnost got better and Dragicevic gave the hosts their first double-digit lead, 38-27, midway through the second quarter. Primorje stormed back in the second half punishing the hosts’ missed shots with fast break opportunities to get within 66-62 with a minute remaining in the third quarter. Buducnost head coach Dejan Radonjic took a timeout after which Bojovic paced a 19-2 charge that sealed the win. Even with youngsters Filip Barovic, Nemanja Djurisic and Mladen Novakovic on the floor for the last three minutes, Buducnost padded its lead and celebrated the title and a second straight undefeated campaign.

The Montenegrin League starts its third edition with Buducnost as the top candidate to win it all again this season. Buducnost has already won consecutive league titles in as many appearances and has a 47-1 record in the competition, so anything but seeing the team lifting the Montenegrin League trophy would be one of the biggest surprises ever seen in European domestic competitions ever. Buducnost put together an impressing roster featuring Vladimir Micov, Nenad Misanovic, Nemanja Gordic, Nikola Otasevic, Ivan Maras or Vladimir Dasic, enough to challenge for the title. Lovcen Cetinje, BC Ulcinjska Rivijera Ulcijn - with Miljan Vukotic and Luka Badanovic -, and Mornar Bar will fight for a spot in the title series, but Buducnost seems absolutely unbeatable in Montenegro for the time being.
