PlayoffsEdit

Igokea, which was supposed to host the Final Four, canceled the organization of this tournament, and the Basketball Association of BiH awarded the organization to Široki. Igokea, Borac and Spars did not show up to the final tournament, and as a result the title was awarded to Široki as a walkover.[7]

Igokea, Borac and Spars were fined, and relegated to a lower tier competition.
