Dwayne
Anderson
Some Beko BBL teams are fortunate to get those special gems that would sweeten any womans Christmas with those special jewels snuggled under their Christmas tree. I am not talking about hard rocks, but those extra special players that will make the difference on and off the court between getting far in the playoffs or just losing 3-0 in the first round. Alba Berlin has Nihad Djedovic who is possibly the biggest European talent from the birth year 1990, FC Bayern Munich has Yotam Halperin who has that special Euroleague stamp engraved on his body, the Brose Baskets Bamberg has ex NBA player Bostjan Nachbar that has played 305 NBA games and might be the best player the Beko BBL has seen since Wendel Alexis and the s.Oliver Baskets have versatile Dwayne Anderson (198-F-86, college: Villanova) who has been carrying the team this season the best he can. Anderson is a 26 year old 198cm forward is playing his fourth professional season and third in Germany. He got his early basketball experience in the NCAA playing for Villanova where he had spectacular teammates like Reggie Redding and Corey Stokes, but seemed to be a bit in the shadow of future NBA player Dante Cunningham. There he was a member of teams reaching the NCAA final 8 and Sweet 16. He came as a rookie to BG Goettingen in 2009 as ex BG Goettingen head coach John Patrick understood his raw talent and gave him a chance. In his two years in Goettingen, he led the team to two Beko BBL playoff appearances and was an instrumental player in the 2010 Eurochallnge win. Last season, he played for Morpho Basket Piacenza (Italy-Lega2) playing 32 games and averaging 15.4ppg, Reb-2 (8.2rpg), 1.5apg, 2.1spg, FGP: 54.2%, 3PT: 30.0%, FT: 72.5%. There he kept up his dominating play and decided to return back to Germany this season to Wurzburg. Just how important John Patrick was for bringing the American isnt too clear, but if Anderson sought any advice where to play this season, one could assume that their paths crossed. If the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg will have success like last season, it will take a team effort, but a big factor where the team lands at the end of the season could be effected by the play of Dwayne Anderson. It doesnt really matter who you talk to, but the positive remarks about the American come as quickly as tennis balls are fired out of a tennis ball machine. It was also no surprise, that John Patrick still had sweet memories of the forward form his time in Goettingen. He came in as a rookie to Goettingen and developed quickly. Dwayne is a great teammate and loves to compete and likes the physical play. He worked on his shot during his time at Goettingen. Every coach wants a guy like him. He was a Eurocup first team player two seasons ago and he is on his way again showing that he is a top European player. I remember a game in Treviso where he had 21 points in the first half and destroyed 2011 Timberwolves draft pick Donatas Motiejunas. He is a guy that has the same routine each day, going to the barber, getting groceries and just saying hi to everybody. He is a very unique guy, stressed 2010 Eurochallenge winner John Patrick. When I was a freshman, Anderson was a junior and he took me under his wing. I looked up to him like a big brother. He was one of the hardest working players that I have ever seen. I remember our coach telling him that he would never play for Villanova, but Dwayne worked harder and proved them all wrong and became one of the best players in the NCAA. Redding was one of the best defensive players that I ever played with, stressed ex BBC Bayreuth player Corey Stokes. It was fun playing with Dwayne. He was so athletic and I remember how aggressive he was attacking the rim and getting rebounds. I talk to him a lot now. He is a good player and guy. I am looking forward to playing against him and my buddy Allan Ray of Ulm, added Walter Tiger Tuebingen American Reggie Redding.

Basketball in Wurzburg was more or less born in 1997 as the club came into the beko BBL mostly due to a 19 year old tall blond talent named Dirk Nowitzki. The team stayed in the top German league until 2005 as it developed future German national players with Robert Garrett, Demond Greene and Marvin Willoughby. The team then wasnt able to successfully stay in the league and also had a dark ominous cloud of bankruptcy hovering over the team. However the club was able to escape any financial problems and started new in the second Bundesliga as Mainfranken Basket. The club wanted to rely on German players, but this experiment failed as they won only one game and departed the second league. The team then rechanged their name to the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg and started new again in the Regionaliga and the club steadily started their rise back to the Beko BBL first reaching the PRO B in the 2008-2009 season winning all 24 games in the Regionaliga. In 2009-2010, the s. Oliver Baskets Wurzburg reached third place in the PRO B and had some fortune as the Hertener were financially unable to play in the PRO A, so the Wurzburg team was able to move up to the PRO A after all. Their dramatic rise continued in the PRO A as they finished the season in second place with a record of 21-7 and reaching the Beko BBL again after 6 years of being away.

The first order of business in Wurzburg last season was finding a head coach and the team did that reeling in American John Patrick early in the summer. Patrick started to quickly build his new team, but as the new season approached his roster looked very much different than two months earlier as some players that had been signed had to go. Americans Patrick Flomo (Gloria Giants), Tim Burnette (Furstenfeld, Austria), Achmadschah Zazai (Giessen 46ers) and American Mike Tisdale had to pack their bags early and in the meantime, the American hauled in new players with Chris Kramer and Robert Tomaszek. The way Patrick functions may not always be favorable to a player, but in the long run, he has had success with his style of players and should know best. Coach has his way and his ways seem to be successful and if a player doesnt fit into what he is trying to accomplish why should he keep him. It is his team and his system and he knows what is best for his team, warned John Bynum. Patrick did a smooth and intelligent act bringing in three ex Goettingen players with Jason Boone, Ben Jacobson and John Little who won the Eurochallenge in 2010 and have much experience that will help the younger players in Wurzburg. Anytime you have a familiar face in your corner it is always a good thing because you know things about the guys already instead of bringing in guys that you may not know about besides their stats. Character takes you a long way and if you already know what your getting then it is an advantage, warned John Bynum. The best part about being reunited with these guys is the fact that we've become accustomed to a certain level of success. And any time one of us, or our teammates is not 100% focused on pursuing that level, we are there to put each other in check. We missed a little of that last season in Gottingen but I'm confident Ben Jacobson will bring that back with him. He brings the best out of John and I, added Jason Boone. Patrick also brought in talented Americans Gilbert Brown (was waived after 8 games, 4,3ppg and 1,8rpg) and Rickey Harris and also wants to show his love for German youth development by bringing in Oliver Clay and Alex King who isnt 18 anymore, but is a player who fills out his role well. Ivan Elliot might be one of the big winners in the roster, because last season he was in the Beko BBL with Bremerhaven got cut and went to the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg helping the team reach the PRO A. Patrick decided to keep the American and already has become an important force this season. The team recently also added Chester Frazier who is no unknown player to the Beko BBL.

The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg got off to a superb start last season of 2-0 beating an always tough defensive minded TBB Trier and crushing the LTi Giessen 46ers 85-60 in the Osthalle. In the 73-67 win against TBB Trier, they showed their defensive qualities forcing TBB Trier to 16 turnovers and In Giessen held a new formed 46er team to 60 points holding them to 38% from the field and 29% from the parking lot while forcing 21 turnovers. American Rickey Harris has quietly been the go to guy amassing 43 points total in the first two games. John Patrick had been known in his years in Goettingen to play a special brand of basketball called 40 minutes of hell where his team plays pressure pressure and pressure bringing the opponent often to the brink of despair. Last season, the 40 minutes of hell seemed to have dipped to 20-25 minutes of hell. If Patrick will have this pressure play in Wurzburg like he had in Goettingen is hard to say, but his pressure style will somehow always be in his blood. I think the pressure was more in Gottingen but dont let that comment think that you dont see a lot of pressure. They disrupt your flow of the game and often you have to rush your sets because you get the ball back to the point guard with around 17-18 seconds and thats what you have to work with your offense, warned John Bynum. Can John Patrick make the s.Oliver Baskets a steady playoff team the way he did with BG Goettingen? Wurzburg can be a playoff team if they protect their home court and get some away teams. Their type of play differs from most teams in the league and teams struggle playing against them, added John Bynum last season. After the loss to the Fraport Skyliners, Wurzburg had a very strong stretch having a 5-2 record. They had big home wins against ratiopharm Ulm and the Telekom Baskets Bonn and showed that they were nothing like a team that might have problems staying in the Beko BBL for a second season. Then came a dry spell as they lost three games in a row including only one of their two home losses of the season against Bamberg, a tough 73-70 road loss in Hagen. Since then the team won three of their last four games including huge home wins against FC Bayern Munich and Alba Berlin. Wurzburg continued to a very strong home team having a 8-1 record in their living room and it seems like Patrick had brought some of that magic invincible aura from the Lokhalle to the s.Oliver arena. Wurzburg also lets up a league best lowest 67 points per game. Wurzburg then lost possibly one of the best games of the season for the Fraport Skyliners 56-51 as the word aggressive physical defense got a new name of SkyWur!. In the second half of the season, the team had a 10-6 season, but had a strong phase having a five game winning streak where they beat teams like Oldenburg and Bonn. They seemed a bit tired at the end of the season registering a 3-5 record, but it wasnt embarrassing as they lost to top teams Berlin, Bamberg and Munich. They finished the season in sixth place with a record of 20-14. They entered the Beko BBL playoffs against eight time Beko BBL champion Alba Berlin and made a huge upset sending the team home with a 3-1 win and once again denying the German capital team a title dating back to 2009. In the semi-finals against ratiopharm Ulm, they seemed to have little gas left in the tank getting swept 3-0. Only the fewest ever expected such a strong season which can be credited to John Patrick once again understanding how to form a competitive team and making the best out of his players and having success.

Soon after the playoff loss to Ulm, a very interesting and surprising development occurred as the team let successful head coach John Patrick go. It was hard to believe that the team and head coach would go separate ways, but for the insider it was clear that there seemed to be clear differences between management and the head coach. Both sides rather stayed silent to what happened and both sides didnt destroy each other in the media either as no one dragged the other side into quick sand. The club decided to name assistant coach Marcel Schroder as head coach. Schroeder was no unknown coach as he had already experienced success with the Bavarian team leading them to the Beko BBL in 2011 from the PRO A. Schroeder is a coach that breathes basketball 24 hours a day and surely gained experience learning from John Patrick. The club was able to increase their player budget from last season, have built a more potent team than last season, kept a healthy core of players and the goal remains reaching the Beko BBL playoffs. The club kept the three BG Goettingen amigos Americans beast under the basket Jason Boone, versatile Ben Jacobson and pitbull John Little who belongs to the top defenders in the league and was one of the most important players in the Alba Berlin series last year as he took a page out of 2011 Beko BBL MVP Dashaun Wood scoring as if he had been transformed in the Detroit natives body. The team also kept German Alex King who continues to develop well. Alex really has made his way in the Beko BBL after being only a role player averaging 5-10 minutes, stated John Patrick. Germans Oliver Clay, big talent Maximilian Kleber and experienced Chistoph Henneberger were also retained. The team lost important players like Americans Chris Kramer, Ivan Elliot and Ricky Harris. Losing team top scorer Chris Kramer hurt very much as he played with so much intensity on offense and defense and could change impact of a game. However the team did a super job filling these spots. The team added American Jimmy Mckinney who left the main in Frankfurt after six years. Mckinney is known as a deadly shooter and is looking to make the next step in Wurzburg being more of a go to guy than he was in Frankfurt. The team got Dwayne Anderson who belongs to the top five forward in the Beko BBL, German national player Chris Mcnaughton who is injured, but will form a nice center duo with Boone, experienced Lamont Mcintosh who celebrated much success with Artland Dragon teams including the 2008 Beko BBL cup and talented German Maurice Stuckey who is on loan from Bamberg where he will get more minutes than in Freak city. The biggest strength of the team will be that the team was formed early and many players were kept from last season. Why should the team change their style when it works. John Patrick practiced the quick aggressive style that he had had in Goettingen called 40 minutes of basketball hell. It was quite that extreme last season, but it was still used maybe 25 minutes of hell. Schroeder still likes to play like this, but so far this season, the team is still looking to come together as the team is parked in the middle field of the standings. Their offense is more versatile and unpredictable compared to last season. Weaknesses this season could be being able to play up to expectations. Also Schroeder is a young coach that is coaching his first season in the Beko BBL. The Eurocup season could leave marks in the second half of the season and injuries could also play a role as the team already found out early with the injury to Chris Mcnaughton.

The Fraport Skyliners have fond memories from the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg winning both games. The FRaport Skyliners squeaked out a 80-78 win at home as American Justin Gray won the game with a buzzer beater. Justin Gray led the Skyliners with 18 points while NBA player Jon Leuer chipped in with 17 points. Chris Kramer had 16 points while Ivan Elliot and ricky Harris contributed 13 points each. In the return game in Wurzburg in early January, the fans witnessed a gruesome hard fought battle in the trenches as no team wanted to give the other teams any gifts as Frankfurt prevailed 56-51. Frankfurt was led by Quantez Robertson with 12 points, Devin Gibson added 11 points and Jermario Davidson produced 10 points. The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg were led by Ben Jacobson with 15 points. The Fraport Skyliners want to win their second game in a row and extend their winning streak against the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg who have lost five of their lasts even games and are coming off a 69-62 loss against TBB Trier at home. Fraport Sklyiner Devin Gibson remembers the defensive battle win in Wurzburg last season and knows what the team will need to do to win their second game in a row. We will have to play defense, defense, defense and pressure, pressure pressure to win, smiled Devin Gibson.

The s. Oliver Baskets Wurzburg are led by Jason Boone who is a 27 year old 198cm power forward/center from Sugar Loaf, New York who played four seasons with Goettingen and is playing his second season in Wurzburg. Four years ago, he made the jump from the Regionalliga to the BBL, which is similar as if a professional baseball player jumped from A ball to MLB. In 2010-2011 for BG Goettingen, he played 37 games: 8.5ppg, 5.9rpg, FGP: 59.8%, FT: 34.9%; EuroCup: 14 games: 9.1ppg, 6.2rpg, Blocks-4 (1.1bpg), FGP: 59.8%, FT: 36.0% . Jason Boone is a strong athlete who likes to finish around the rim and is not a shooter at all. One should give him the jump shot and dont let him penetrate. He is a strong offensive rebounder and goes to the boards each time. He isnt a good free throw shooter and dont give him any easy layups. One should attack him on defense and despite his athletic body, doesnt move his feet so well and he is foul prone, Frankfurt still will have to keep an eye on him in the paint, added 2009 Beko BBL top scorer Omari Westley. Boone is probably one of the strongest low post players in the BBL. He can move anybody with his strength down low, added Ricky Hickman who is playing for Macabbi Tel Aviv. I always want to improve my game, and I feel like coming into this season fully healthy will help me establish myself as a top center in this league. In retrospect I think, on a personal level, 2010-2011 was a "down" year for me, but it taught me a, commented Jason Boone. Last season for Wurzburg, Boone played 40 games: 8.7ppg, 5.7rpg, FGP: 53.6%, FT: 52.4. Ben Jacobson is a 28 year old 188cm guard that is a big Time Point Guard, very good defender and a great scorer who can create his own shot that is playing his second season in Wurzburg. Before coming to BG Goettingen in 2007, he played at Northern Iowa with teammate John Little and in other German places like Erdgas Ehingen and the Mitteldeutscher BC. His most successful season was 2009-2010 where he helped BG Goettingen win the Eurochallenge. In 2010-2011 he played for Ikaros Kallitheas (Greece-A1, starting five), only pre-season, in Dec.'10 moved to Boulazac Basket Dordogne (France-ProB, starting five): 19 games: 12.8ppg, 3.5rpg, 4.1apg, 1.2spg, FGP: 47.4%, 3PT: 34.9%. Last season for Wurzburg, he played 40 games: 8.6ppg, 2.9rpg, 3.0apg, FGP: 40.9%, 3PT: 30.2%, FT: 65.7%.

The third member to arrive from BG Goettingen in 2011 is John Little who is a 28 year old 180cm guard from Peoria, Illinois. He played four seasons with BG Goettingen. He played at Northern Iowa from 2002-2006. In 2007-2008, he wanted to play for the Peoria Kings of the ABA league, but the team folded, so he returned to Northern Iowa and finished the season as assistant coach. Last season, he played EuroCup: 9 games: 6.1ppg, 2.4rpg, 1.4apg, 1.2spg, FGP: 48.5%, 3PT: 45.5%, FT: 80.0%; German League: 33 games: 6.3ppg, 3.6rpg, 1.3apg, FGP: 47.3%, 3PT: 21.0%, FT: 75.0% Little is their energy guy. He brings a lot of energy and athletic ability from the bench. He doesnt have much of a shot and likes to drive to the hoop and finish at the rim. He is a good rebounder for his size. He is possibly the best defender on the team. He has long arms and plays the passing lanes well and is their best on ball defender, stressed Omari Westley. He is probably one of the scrappiest players in the league and always plays hard and gives 100% every minute on the court, added Ricky Hickman. Last season for Wurzburg, he played 41 games: 9.0ppg, 3.4rpg, 1.6apg, FGP: 40.7%, 3PT: 34.5%, FT: 64.1%. The team brought in American Jimmy Mckinney who is a 29 year old 192cm shooting guard from St Louis who is cousins with ex Skyliner Lorenzo Gordon. Mckinney is a s a solid knock-down shooter, but also can score from penetration and with rim-rattling dunks. He played at Missouri from 2002-2006 where he was a teammate of NBA player Linas Kleiza. He played a total of 133 NCAA Games. He played for the Frankfurt Skyliners from 2006-2012 playing a total of 218 games reaching the 2008 Beko BBL semi final and 2010 Beko BBL final where hew a son the floor in a tough game 5 loss in Bamberg. Last season for Frankfurt he played EuroCup: 6 games: 14.7ppg, 2.7rpg, 1.2apg, FGP: 45.5%, 3PT: 41.4%, FT: 92.3%; German League: 34 games: 13.2ppg, 2.5rpg, 1.7apg, FGP: 50.0%, 3PT: 39.3%, FT: 84.0%.

The team also hauled in Lamont Mcintosh who is a 30 year old 190cm guard from Georgia that is playing his ninth professional season and first in Wurzburg. He played at Georgia Tech from 2000-2004. In his first two seasons he played for the Southern Crescent Lightning (WBA) and then went to Europe to play for the Scottish Rocks (United Kingdom-BBL). In 2005, he showed that he could play in a more higher league playing for Verviers-Pepinster (Belgium-D1): 28 games: 15.0ppg, 2.5rpg, 2.2apg, 1.0spg, 2FGP: 51.0%, 3PT: 35.0%, FT: 51.0%. He then played for the Artland Dragons from 2006-2009 reaching the playoffs each season. In 2009-2010, he played for Politekhnika-Halychyna Lviv (Ukraine-Superleague) 20 games: 16.1ppg, 3.1rpg, 3.2apg, 1.2spg, FGP: 46.5%, 3PT: 35.6%, FT: 73.8%. In 2001-2011, he played for Enosi Kalathosfairisis Kavalas (Greece-A1, starting five): 25 games: 7.1ppg, 2.0rpg, FGP: 51.9%, 3PT: 30.0%, FT: 80.8%. Last season, he played for AZS Koszalin (Poland-PLK): 14 games: 11.2ppg, 1.4rpg, 2.0apg, FGP: 41.0%, 3PT: 43.1%, FT: 85.2%. Christopher Mcnaughton is a 29 year old 211cm center. He is a true back-to-the-basket big man, but does possess good mobility for his size. He started his basketball career in the Bamberg system in 2000 playing 35 games for TSV Troester Breitengrussbach in the second Bundesliga. He then played at Bucknell from 2003-2007. After getting valuable experience in the NCAA, he played two years in Spain before moving to BG Goettingen in 2009-2010. He helped the club win the Eurochallenge and scoring 22 points in the final. He played EuroChallenge: 15 games: 8.9ppg, 4.1rpg, FGP: 61.4%, FT: 71.1%; German League: 37 games: 7.4ppg, 2.9rpg, FGP: 62.2%, 3PT: 33.3%, FT: 71.4%.
