After being involved in her second nose breaking incident on the court in this season German prosecution is now investigating against U.S. import Sherida Triggs (185-F-85, college: ODU) because of criminal assault! Giving this story a little interesting twist is the fact that in both games the referees did not call for a foul! Since video reviewing is not allowed in the regulations of the DBBL the league itself did not/could not react in both cases. But at least the second incident will now be reviewed by the law enforcement authority due to Lejla Betics demand for penalty at the prosecution as her club the Halle Lions announced in a press release earlier this week. While the Marburg club officials belief in an accident the incident is seen as a willful attack from Triggs on Bejtic in Halle. The injured player is quoted in the local Halle newspaper: 'it is important to me to show that you cannot play Basketball like Sherida Triggs is doing.'
To find out hinmself what has happened the author reviewed both games on video and describes both incidents from his perspective:
On game day one on September 27th 2009 Marburg played against 1.DBBL newcomer Opladen. Two minutes before the end of the game Sherida Triggs and her opponent Mareike Nettersheim (186-C) are battling for the rebound. Triggs gets the ball but Nettersheim reaches in from behind to steal the ball. To get rid of her Triggs hammers her elbow right in the face of Nettersheim who suffered a broken nose and a broken maxillary antrum in this sequence that needed to be fixed in two surgeries. Mareike Nettersheim was out for more than a month and missed the following five games after this incident.
On February 6th 2010 Marburg played in Halle. The second half of the game had just started as Lejla Bejtic (174-F-85) was running by Sherida Triggs in order to follow her cutting opponent Margret Skuballa she was defending. In the moment Bejtic is right next to her, Triggs extends her elbow out and hits Bejtic in the face who suffered a broken nose that needed to be fixed in a surgery. She was out for 10 days, missed one game and is now playing with a Rip Hamilton mask.
The German prosecution has already started to investigate hearing witnesses and reviewing the video sequences. Eurobasket will keep on reporting in this case.

American Guard Dara Taylor (173-G-91) put on an amazing game in the last round for Neuss, receiving a Eurobasket.com 2.Bundesliga Player of the Week award for round 22. The 25-year old player got a double-double of 12 points and 15 assists, while her team outclassed TuSLi Berlin (#9, 8-14) with 35-point margin 86-51. Neuss maintains the 4th position in their group in German 2.Bundesliga. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost a few games earlier this season. Neuss will need more victories to improve their 14-8 record. Taylor turned to be Neuss' top player in her first season with the team. Former The Pennsylvania State University star has very solid stats this year. Taylor is league's best passer with 5.5apg. Taylor is in league's top in and averages impressive 3.3spg.
The second best player in last round's games was 22-year old American Elena Popkey (168-PG-94) of Bad Hombur. Popkey had a very good evening with 22 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Of course she led Bad Hombur to another comfortable win outscoring the lower-ranked Mainz (#11, 3-17) 81-57. Bad Hombur's 4th position in South has not changed. Her team's 12-8 record is not bad at all. Popkey is a newcomer at Bad Hombur, but is already one of team's top players.
Third on the list of top players last round was Bulgarian guard Gergana Georgieva (181-G-87) of Mainz (#11). Georgieva showcased her all-around game by recording 21 points, eight rebounds and five assists in the last round. Despite Georgieva's great performance Mainz lost 57-81 to the higher-ranked Bad Hombur (#4, 12-8). But her team cannot count on just a single player as she also needs help of the other teammates. Mainz can only dream about fighting for top spots in South. They have rather bad season and 3-17 record places them close to the bottom of the standings. Too bad for Georgieva she does not play for a better team. But maybe if she did, her season stats would not be that high. Georgieva has individually a great season in Germany. After 20 games, she made it on the list of the league's leaders in points with 16.6ppg (9th best) and rebounds with 9.8rpg (8th best). She also has 2.6spg and FGP: 53.6%.
