Jack Animam delivered another all-around performance as Radnicki Kragujevac dispatched Vrsac 84-71 in the 2021-22 First Women's Basketball League of Serbia on Sunday (October 31, Manila time).

The Gilas Pilipinas Women stalwart delivered a 16-point, 16-rebound double-double effort while collecting three assists, three steals and two blocks for Radnicki, which picked up their second consecutive win to rise to a 3-2 record.  

Animam was efficient in a 7-of-8 effort from the field, leading the balanced offensive thrust of Kragujevac that gave Vrsac fits all game long.  

Milica Indic had a stellar all-around outing with 17 points, five boards, two assists, and two steals, while Danijela Dimitrijevic snapped out her personal slump as she contributed 17 points of her own.  

Marijana Stojanovic also proved instrumental as she knocked down three triples to finish with 14 points, as Andrea Glomazic supplied 12 points and three rebounds. 

Holding a 38-37 edge at the half, Radnicki shifted into a higher gear in the third period where it unfurled a searing 23-point outburst, turning a slim lead into a commanding 61-53 advantage.  

Animam and co. then pulled all the stops in the final frame to seal the deal and send Vrsac to their fourth loss in five matches.  

Tina Selakovic topped the losing side with 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals. 

Animam and Radnicki will aim to extend their winning run to three when they collide with the streaking Vojvodina 021.
