POSTED BY:

There was no lack of excitement in the last round games. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

The most surprising game was a loss of top-ranked ratiopharm Ulm (7-2) at the home court on Saturday night. Hosts were defeated by tenth ranked Telekom Baskets (4-3) 107-103. It ended at the same time the six-game winning streak of ratiopharm Ulm. Worth to mention a great performance of American point guard Jared Jordan (188-84, college: Marist) who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 22 points and 10 assists (on 9-of-11 shooting from the field) and the other American import swingman Robert Vaden (196-85, college: UAB) who added 21 points and 7 rebounds during the contest. American center John Bryant (208-87, college: Santa Clara) responded with 22 points and 7 rebounds. ratiopharm Ulm's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Telekom Baskets moved-up to eighth place, which they share with TBB Trier. ratiopharm Ulm at the other side still keeps top position with two games lost. Telekom Baskets is looking forward to face Eisbaeren Bremerhaven (#11) at home in the next round. ratiopharm Ulm will play against EWE Baskets (#3) in Oldenburg and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked BBC Bayreuth (5-3) against fourth ranked EWE Baskets (6-2) on Sunday night. Visiting BBC Bayreuth was crushed by EWE Baskets in Oldenburg 71-50. The winners were led by American power forward Adam Chubb (208-81, college: Pennsylvania, agency: Pro One Sports) who had that evening a double-double by scoring 14 points and 13 rebounds and Ronnie Burrell supported him with 13 points and 7 rebounds. Even 9 points and 6 rebounds by center Stefan Schmidt (206-89) did not help to save the game for BBC Bayreuth. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. EWE Baskets moved-up to third place. BBC Bayreuth at the other side dropped to the fourth position with three games lost. They share it with B.Muenchen and Art.Dragons. EWE Baskets will play against league's leader ratiopharm Ulm on the road in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. BBC Bayreuth will play against Mitteldeutscher BC in Weissenfels and hopes to get back on the winning track.
The game in Muenchen was also quite interesting. 5th ranked TBB Trier (4-3) played at the court of seventh ranked Bayern Muenchen (5-3). Bayern Muenchen managed to secure a 6-point victory 72-66 on Saturday. The best player for the winners was Tyrese Rice who scored 16 points and 4 assists. Bayern Muenchen's coach Giannis Christopoulos used a ten-player rotation which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Nate Linhart produced 13 points and 5 rebounds for the guests. Bayern Muenchen moved-up to fourth place, which they share with Bayreuth and Art.Dragons. Loser TBB Trier dropped to the eighth position with three games lost. They share it with Telekom Baskets. Bayern Muenchen will meet league's second-placed Brose Baskets in the next round and it may be the game of the week. TBB Trier will play against LTi 46ers (#18) in Giessen and hope to secure a win.
A very interesting game took place in Frankfurt. It ended with only two-point defeat on the road of 16th ranked New Yorker Phantoms (2-6) to fifteenth ranked Deutsche Bank Skyliners (3-5) 61-59 on Sunday evening. Dion Dowell orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 12 points and 10 rebounds. New Yorker Phantoms' coach tested ten players, but that didn't help to avoid defeat in this game. Deutsche Bank Skyliners moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Neckar L'burg and Phoenix Hagen. New Yorker Phantoms lost third consecutive game. They keep the sixteenth position with six games lost. Deutsche Bank Skyliners' next round opponent will be higher ranked ALBA Berlin (#7) on the road and they do not belong to the favorites in that game. New Yorker Phantoms will play against Walter Tigers (#15) in Tuebingen and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
12th ranked EnBW Ludwigsburg (3-5) was outscored at home by third ranked Brose Baskets (6-1) with the biggest margin this round 89-59 on Monday night. Worth to mention a quality performance of Maik Zirbes who helped to win the game recording 17 points and 6 rebounds (on 7-of-8 shooting from the field). Since the result was very predictable, it gave the chance for the coaches to test many bench players and allowed the starting five to rest. Brose Baskets have a solid four-game winning streak. Defending champion moved-up to second place. Loser EnBW Ludwigsburg keeps the twelfth position with five games lost. Brose Baskets will face Bayern Muenchen (#4) at home in the next round. EnBW Ludwigsburg will play against Artland Dragons (#5) in Quakenbrueck.
