Wwin Siroki only narrowly missed out on a spot in the Adriatic League Final Four, coming in fifth during the regular season.

But they made up for it with a run to the league title in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Ivan Velic's side captured the domestic crown for the fourth year in a row with a 3-2 victory over rivals Igokea in the play-off finals.

Igokea's 74-63 victory in Game 4 had set up a decider and Siroki left no doubt they were the top side in the league, rolling to an 86-77 victory.

Late in the third quarter, the celebrations were already underway because Siroki had a commanding 71-46 lead.

While they were outscored 27-15 over the last 10 minutes, their title was never in doubt.

Dalibor Persic, the 26-year-old forward who has been named in the Bosnia and Herzegovina preliminary squad for the EuroBasket 2013 Qualification Round, had 16 points and 12 rebounds in the last game.

Siroki also beat Igokea in the domestic cup competition back in February, winning that game 83-75.
