First half of 2018/2019 season is finished and it’s a right time to look back on what is done and to update our ranking lists.
Trending player: Nikola Mišković
After spending last season in Beovuk playing in KLS and having problems with injuries, Mišković started ready this season and he played all 14 games for Mega Bemax in ABA League. During those games he had a lot of oscilations which is normal for young player who plays on that level, but now after Goga Bitadze leaving the team Mišković while have much more space on the court and ball in his hands. Last two game vs FMP (13 pts) and Cedevita (19 pts) showed that he will have much bigger role in the team now and the next season we can expect him as one of the leaders of the team.
Filip Barna (from #18 to #11 )

Trending player: Alen Smailagić
Smailagić made a very unexpected choice as a one of the top prospects in Europe in his generation. He decided to go to NBA G League and he got selected by South Bay Lakers in the G League draft with very high 4th pick and immediately traded to Santa Cruz Warriors. He is the youngest player ever to play NBA development competition. So far Smailagić is playing unexpectedly well averaging 9.8 pts and 4.3 reb for 18 minutes on the court. He suffer a minor injury at the moment and he missed couple games, but he will be back soon and it is going to be interesting to see how he is going to develop further.
Ognjen Mićović (from unranked to #15)
Lazar Grbović (from #21 to #16)
Srđan Krsmanović (from #30 to #18)

Tanasković is having a great season. Beside he is dominating in U19 Roda JLS, he is also playing senior basketball for Mladost Zemun in KLS and having solid numbers for his first senior season (9.5 pts, 5.6 reb, 1.2 blk). Tanasković showed improvment of almost every aspect of his game and body strength is improving especially. He made it also to debut for Partizan senior team in ABA League in the game vs Cedevita and it shows that coach Trinchieri count on him in the future.

Trending player: Stefan Todorović
Todorović is at the moment the best player in U17 Triglav KLS. He is leading Vizura on the right way, and big credit goes to him because Vizura is currently on the 3rd place in the league. He missed a U16 European Championship, but he use a free summer to improve himself and to get ready for the season. After this season he would probably need to change the environment and look for higher level club and competition, and we will see what he will choose.
Luka Kovačević (from #19 to #15)
Miloš Ilić (from unranked to #21)
Filip Škobalj (from #20 to #16)

Trending player: Nikola Radovanović
Radovanović is one of the biggest talents in his generation in whole Europe. He is in one of the best clubs for young players, Budućnost Bijeljina under the coach Dario Cojić who works with him. Budućnost is playing this season U16 EYBL competition and in first phase Nikola dominated averaging 34 ppg. Beside that he is also playing senior basketball for Budućnost and he is not just participating, he is the best scorer in his team, and 5th best in whole league. There is similar situation with him like with Todorović. He is probably going at the end of the season to make next step in his career and choose bigger club for his furher developement.

Trending player: Ilija Milijašević
Milijašević at the start of the season moved from Mladost Zemun to Partizan. The adjustment period in new club obviously went well for him. He stand out as a leader in Partizan U15 team who plays great this season. They are 1st in the league with no defeat and they also won a “Reba Corkovic” tournament where Milijašević was the best scorer with 91 pts in 3 games. He also played some games for U17 team in Triglav KLS as a two year younger which will mean him a lot to gain some experience of playing on that level.
