In order for Partizan to reach another milestone and qualify for the Final 4 Milt Palacio will have to continue playing like he did this whole season.
Although Partizan is based on the home grown players, Milt Palacio fits in well and enjoys representing the club. Serbian coaches are famous for getting most of their players and picking the right foreigners. Dusko Vujosevic is no exception.
