stepped up big for Red Star in the ULEB Cups Eight Finals, becoming the premier scorer on the team during the two-legged series. In those two games, he averaged 17.5 points (combining for a terrific 15/20 from the field) and 5.5 rebounds in barely 24 minutes, although his team ended up losing against a rather strong Besiktas. A few days later, he recorded a career-high 19 points, with 4 rebounds, to lead Red Star over Zadar. Back to the ULEB Cup, Kikanovic again showed his superb ability to finish around the rim. Still very skinny, he got easily outmuscled in the low post, in rebounding situations or whenever there was contact he had to battle with the likes of Predrag Drobnjak
or Kaya Peker, but he still managed to produce thanks to his very solid off-the-ball game, his good hands and excellent touch. He seems to be making solid strides with his mid-range jumper, while he showcased again his soft touch around the rim with his right-handed jumphook, his good footwork on the lane and his nice ability to finish with dunks as he takes advantage of his great length. His poor frame is likely slowing down his physical development, but he might be quite an interesting guy down the road, at least for European basketball.
