Pero Antic, the only Macedonian to have played in the NBA, was named head of the Macedonian Basketball Federation today.

Other candidates, like Vladimir Temelkovski and Petar Naumoski withdrew from the race, and Antic was elected as the only candidate.

With a great team, good strategy and program, I hope to begin to bring basketball back where it belongs. We will involve business people, professionals and we will all work to improve our game, said Antic.
