Career: Partizan Belgrade (Serbia & Montenegro-YUBA, 2002-06).
He is a leader of Serbia & Montenegro's new generation which is about to replace its aging stars. Or so they hope in Belgrade. After failing to produce quality shooters for some time, all hopes are now invested in Tripkovic becoming the heir to the likes of Stojakovic, Scepanovic, Gurovic or Beric. And Young Uros has all the tools to fulfill these expectations. For starters, he was born and bred in Cacak, the birthplace of deadly shooters such as Dragan Kicanovic and Zeljko Obradovic. Enough to have a shooting gene.
Widely considered as the best shooting guard in the country at the tender age of 20, Tripkovic now has to prove himself on another level, because he is a surefire pick for Serbia's top 12 for this summer adventure in Japan.
