ESP - Mixed weekend for Milojevic

VALENCIA (ACB) - Pamesa Valencia ace Dejan Milojevic was thrilled to be named MVP on the opening weekend of ACB action - but admits he would have readily swapped that accolade for a winning start for his side.

Milojevic poured in 27 points and hauled down 9 rebounds in Sunday´s home match against Tau Ceramica, but it was not enough to prevent Valencia slipping to an agonising 95-94 defeat.

Milojevic´s performance saw him named the weekend´s leading player in Spain, but it is a bitter-sweet success for the Serbian.

"It is very good for me, but the important thing was that the team won, and this was not the case," said the 200cm forward, who is no stranger to seeing his name up in lights.

He was MVP of the YUBA league on four occasions, and has been named MVP of the Adriatic League for the past three years.

The former Partizan Belgrade star was also in contention to win the FIBA Europe Player of the Year award in 2005, alongside the likes of Pau Gasol, Andrei Kirilenko, Sarunas Jasikevicius and eventual winner Dirk Nowitzki.

"I try and make good numbers so that the team can win," said the 29-year-old Milojevic.

Pamesa looked to have taken control of the match in the third quarter, which they took 29-22 to establish a four-point lead heading into the final period.

But Tau, for whom Brazil superstar Tiago Splitter scored 17 points, edged the last quarter 23-18 to take the spoils.

"Tau are a very good team and it was expected that the game was difficult," Milojevic said on his club´s official website.

"We played well, but perhaps we needed a little luck in the final moments."

Next up for Valencia is a trip to Polaris World CB Murcia before they then face 2004 Spanish champions Winterthur Barcelona.

Barca, who reached the play-off semi-finals last season, started their campaign with a defeat at Etosa Alicante, highlighting the strength in depth in the ACB.

"(The ACB) has a very high level, has many players of quality and it is right that it is considered the best league in Europe," admitted Milojevic. "I genuinely believe that it is."

Sai cosa mi fa rabbia? Che qs.sarebbe venuto via dal Buducnost 3 anni or sono x 150,000$/anno...! E non sarebbe stato in ogni caso un salto nel buio, essendo comunque anche in quell'anno (x la 3a volta...) uno da 20+10 in Yugo.

Ma anche noi, pure in quell'anno, gli abbiamo preferito uno dal talento solo offensivo, as usual.

OK, torno nei ranghi, schiscio&punìto... :rolleyes:

Vabbè, tanto ormai... :lol:

SCG - It's delight for Dejan, Pamesa

VALENCIA (ACB) - Dejan MILOJEVIC picked up his second MVP award of the season after helping Pamesa Valencia win 98-90 win over Etosa Alicante.

Milojevic, who was also named most valuable player on the opening weekend of ACB action, netted a game-high 23 points, pulled down five rebounds and handed out four assists as Pamesa won for the first time in four games on Sunday.

Milojevic, a Serbian international, was disappointed that his first MVP award came following a defeat, but the Serbian was much happier with this success.

"This time I am completely happy with the award," he said on Pamesa´s official website.

"The individual recognition is important, but it is more so that we won yesterday against Etosa."

Pamesa had been trailing by one point at half-time, but blew their opponents away with a stunning display in the third quarter, which they won 26-13.

"The team played a great game, but it had been very difficult until the third quarter," said Milojevic, who also praised the team´s supporters for their part in the win.

"They were very important in yesterday´s victory. They were supporting us all along, especially when the game was tight, and when we went nine points down they helped us overcome the deficit."

Pamesa´s next match pits them against Alta Gestion Fuenlabrada, who have won two of their opening four games, but were hammered 88-68 by Lagun Aro Bilbao Basket at the weekend.

And Milojevic believes that game will offer his side a great chance to pick up their second victory of the campaign.

"After starting with three defeats, yesterday´s win was very important," he said.

"We have trained well and with our first triumph we have confidence for the coming games.

"I have faith that we can win next Sunday´s clash with Fuenlabrada."
