Fahro Alihodzic posted a double-double in a narrow defeat for Sigal Prishtina in the first leg of the Basketball Champions League qualifiers.
The 30-year-old – who made his GB Senior debut in 2015 – returned to action following an injury that forced him to miss last season, posting 20 points and 12 rebounds.
So I haven’t had a real game in a year due to injury. Im super excited for today’s @BasketballCL Qualifier as our season kicks off. All that hard work to get basketball back in my life! Makes me nervous too
