It had been a strange sight and something that one had to get used to in the first few months in Frankfurt basketball land not seeing Jimmy McKinney (192-G-83, college: Missouri) sporting his GQ outfits and St Louis Cardinals hats, listening to his actor like soft voice philosophying about the game like a young Wesly Snipes or just getting into a groove of saying ahhhhhhhh after witnessing the grace and beauty of seeing his shooting stroke from all over the court. Not seeing Jimmy McKinney in a Fraport Skyliners jersey has been as difficult for fans on the Main as if the famous Frankfurt drink Appelwoi had been banished for good, the Romer place had been painted pink for marketing reasons or if the famous Frankfurt wurtschen hot dogs had been replaced by the ball park franks. These things ever happening would have been like a cut in the heart for people just like it was the gregarious St Louis native packing his stuff and heading to Wurzburg. Mckinney had returned back to Frankfurt in preseason with the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg to battle in a preseason game at the Skyliners traing facility which they lost. However that preseason clout wasnt the same for Mckinney as returning to the Fraport arena which had been his living room for the past six years. Mckinney has started a bit subpar into the season shooting under 40% from the field and from downtown, but when one saw Mckinney step on the floor for the first time in a Wurzburg jersey, one could see the look in his eyes that he was as focused as head coach Mike D antoni trying to bring glory days back to the Los Angeles Lakers, well known soccer player Zlatan Ibrahimovic still showing that he can score amazing goals like a Messi or Ronaldo at the ripe age of 31 or like any American making the most of a Thanksgiving meal each year. Mckinney came back to Frankfurt and wasnt a big factor on offense scoring seven points, but helped guide the team to a hard fought 59-55 victory. It was tough playing, because the whole return was so emotional which led to me not finding my rhythm until the end. I was really happy to play against Tez. He is my guy and I love him dirty. He is like a real brother to me and I hope that we can be teammates again someday. He is one of the best athletes I ever saw, stressed Jimmy McKinney. Robertson also enjoyed playing against his friend. We competed very hard and really made it hard for each other. He didnt score much, but the team still scored. I miss the fun we had on and off the court, smilied Quantez Robertson. Jason Boone was all smiles when describing the worth of Mckinney to the team. He might not have admitted it, but Jimmy was locked in for this game. We really wanted to get him the win. He works so hard is always the first in the gym and last to go. He just wants to win so much. I never saw such a pure shooter like him, warned New York native Jason Boone. I like Jimmy McKinney. He is a real smooth guy and great shooter. You cant give him any space. You always need to know where he is at all times, stressed American Skyliner Ted Scott.
The Fraport Skyliners entered the game in 12th place and coming off a high with their domination and win against ratiopharm Ulm last weekend. They were looking for their fourth home win in a row and were defending like a Boston Celtic team of the 60s with Bill Russell at the helm as they were averaging only giving up 60 points a game. Frankfurt stayed on track allowing only 59 points, but were unable to get a flow on offense. It was one of those games where the ball wasnt falling. We had great looks, but they just werent falling. On offense you need to execute and we didnt do that. Everyone has to be in the right place. We were a bit hesitant at times and were a bit too unselfish. At the end of the day if you want to be successful you still have to hit your shots. We did play good defense though, stressed Ted Scott. The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg entered the game in 13th place and were coming off a big win in Eurocup play against Valencia. They are a team that is known as playing in the trenches on defense, but still havent found a consistency in offense. They didnt have their best offensive game, but played hard enough defense to prevail and even at the end when the Fraport Skyliners made a run and cut the lead to three points, were able to grind out the win in crunch time even though they had lost three games with seven or less points. Jason Boone saw parallels to the 55-51 loss in Wurzburg. Both games were similar in that both teams defended very well. We were able to grind out the game at the end and hit some big shots, added Jason Boone. Mckinney was as comical as usual when asked if he could win round three at the battle of Wurzburg later this season. I think we can win round three in Wurzburg. Only Miles can say something like that, laughed Jimmy MCkinney. Quantez Robertson had a fierce look of a tiger about round three at the battle of Wurzburg latte rin the season. Jimmy knows I want revenge and he better be ready, warned Quantez Robertson.
4,560 fans wanted to watch a classic defensive battle on a Sunday afternoon and that is exactly what they got. The first few minutes remained scoreless as both teams were feeling each other out as Quantez Robertson already set the tone on defense as he made two steals. No team was giving the other team any gifts as defense was on the menu and offense seemed like a rotten apple had been served for desert. Jimmy McKinney finally got Wurzburg on the board first with an off balance jumper. Skyliner head coach brought in energy spark Zach Peacock who came from the bench and right hit a fade away jumper from the left wing. The game continued to be very tight as both teams had to fight like a lion for their shots as open shots in the first quarter seemed as scare as finding water in the desert. Jason Boone then got the 300 Wurzburg fans who made the trip to jump from their seats with a powering left handed slam dunk over American Dion Dowell. Robertson then tied the game at 4-4 with a pair of free throws. Villanova alumnist Dwayne Anderson then showed that he can score in bounces like a Mckinney making a floater and jumper from the wing as Wurzburg led 8-4. Wurzburg continued their run to 7-0 as they had great ball movement and found Mckinney open and he dropped a three pointer as Wrzburg led 11-4. The Fraport Skyliners then put a small dent into the run making a 5-0 run to cut the Wurzburg lead to 11-9. Dowell who iis always a threat from outside nailed a bomb form outside and Robertson got to the free throw line again making two free throws. Jason Boone then made like Shaq again dunking as if that was all he should do as German Danilo Barthel did the right choice by stepping out of the way. The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg led 13-9 after one quarter. This was what all expected with a defensive battle. Both teams had problems finding a rhythm on offense. Both teams seemed a bit nervous and one could see that the Skyliners were missing their injured players, stressed s.Oliver baskets assistant press secretary Michael Will. The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg were shooting 38% from the field and 25% from outside while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 25% from the field and 25% from outside. Wurzburg had the 10-5 rebound edge and both teams had five turnovers a piece.
The Fraport Skyliners didnt get out of the gate fast in the second quarter as the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg stepped up their intensity on offense speeding out on a crushing 8-0 run to lead 21-9. Wurzburg got three pointers from unlikely players like John Little and German Christoph Henneberger. One can defend a Little in that he has vastly improved his scoring in the last year as he was always known as a top defender. Since the playoff series last season against Alba Berlin, he was top scorer in that series and was more like a Dashaun Wood than a John Little on offense in that series. Ex Skyliner Alex King then found some space inside and also dunked. Frankfurt continued to have difficulty on offense by getting any support besides from Peacock who traded baskets with Little. Wurzburg continued to get too the free throw line as Dwayne Anderson drew two fouls. Peacock then scored a turn around jumper over Anderson as whenever he called for the ball he got it. Devin Gibson then made a shot in the lane as Frankfurt trailed 28-15. Frankfurt continued to be too inconsistent and lacked concentration as Robertson made a steal and then lost the ball on that possession in the first quarter and Gibson did it in the second quarter. Ex Artland Dragon Lamont Mcintosh nailed a pull up jumper and Johnathan Jones made a tip in as Frankfurt trailed 30-18. Dwayne Anderson then made a pretty penetration giving Germans Barthel and Voightman nice head fakes and then laying in the ball with his left hand. Jones closed out the second quarter with a coast to coast run as the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg led 33-21 at halftime. The first two three pointers by Little and Henneberger were key for getting the momentum. We ahd better ball movement and the Valencia game gave the team self confidence. It was just a mental thing before our shots started to fall, added Michael Will. The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg were shooting 43% from the field and 30% from the three point line while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 29% from the field and 11% from the three point line. Wurzburg had the 20-13 rebound edge, but ten turnovers and Frankfurt had eight turnovers.
In the third quarter, the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg continued to keep their 10-12 point lead as the Fraport Skyliners continued to have scoring woes. The team could have used Ted Scott who is still out with an injury as that deadly shooting presence that the American has was missed as much as Germna national player Holger Badstuber will be for the FC Bayern Munich soccer team. Boone started the third quarter with a free throw as Wurzburg led 34-21. Zach Peacock was a player that was being the go to guy, but another Skyliner was being a presence with German Konstantin Klein. The young German who is a license player that also plays PRO B was a guy that was really trying to take charge as he was looking for the shot, penetrating and just being a beast any way he could as a guard. He dropped a three pointer and right away on the next play force a turnover on American Ben Jacobson. Frankfurt still trailed 34-24. Then it was time again for Jason Boone who was in dunk mode making two consecutive dunks in a row as Wurzburg led 38-24. After missing a dunk, Boone got another chance and kind of dunked it home softly like a baby. I like to play physical, but at times, but the opponent buries me and I miss the dunk, then I get a different mindset and that is the wakeup call for the next opportunity to finish well, stressed ex BG Goettingen American Jason Boone. Little and Peacock exchanged three pointers as Wurzburg still had the upperhand leading 41-30. Here and there there were minor breakdowns in the Frankfurt defense allowing a Alex King to fly unscathed to the hop for an easy lay up as his man and help were nowhere to be seen. Johannes Voigtmann continues to use the extended playing time to grow as a big man as he made a pretty baby hook shot over Jason Boone. The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg still led after three quarters 45-34. The third quarter was back and forth and we knew we had to keep a good lead, because Frankfurt can always come back. We kept lead at 10 points, added Jason Boone. The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg were shooting 52% form the two point range and 27% from the parking lot while the Fraport Skyliners were shooting 37% from the field and 19% from the parking lot. Wurzburg had the 27-19 rebound edge, but 16 turnovers while Frankfurt had 12 turnovers.
With ten minutes to play, time was running out for the Fraport Skyliners, but one should never count out the players of Muli Katzurin until the final buzzer has sounded. Peacock started the scoring for Frankfurt with a nice shovel lay in between King and Boone. Little then hit another big three pointer as Wurzburg led 48-36. Saved his best for last dropping a three pointer and hitting a pull up jumper. Robertson also hit a three pointer, but Wurzburg still led 55-41 as the Fraport Skyliners continued to be unable to make any ground. However one can argue what are the most exciting things in a basketball game to mega dunks or monster blocks, but the ability for a team to race back into a game with a run has to be high on the list for any basketball fan as the Fraport Skyliners did exactly that going on a 11-0 run to cut the Wurzburg lead to 55-52 with two minutes to play. A massive Zach Peacock dunk on the fast break got Frankfurt the momentum for the run. German Johannes Voigtman also played an important role hitting back to back mid distance jumpers in the run. Robertson then made a lay up and on the next in bound play, Gibson stole the ball out of Mckinneys hand under the basket and fed the ball to Tez for the next lay in and three point difference. Frankfurt never gave up. There are so many teams that when they are down much will say we will get them back the next day, but not Frankfurt. Frankfurt hit big shots and got the crowd going. We had to shut the door faster, but couldnt, stressed Jason Boone. The Fraport Skyliners seemed like they were going to pull out an incredible come from behind win, but then had misfortune again as Jones made a big steal and fed super Tez, but he missed the lay up with a hard penetration. After Mckinney got the ball, he went back and Skyliner Devin Gibson tried to draw a foul, but instead got hit for too much acting getting a technical foul and sending Mckinney to the free throw line. Then Frankfurt had a chance to cut the lead to two points, but Robertson missed a tough three pointer from the wing. I tried to get off the quick shot to cut the lead to two points, but it just didnt want to fall, commented Quantez Robertson. Little then made two free throws and Klein hit a tough lay in high off the glass, but was all too late as the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg escaped the trench of the Fraport arena with a win. Giving up 59 points is good on defense, but we need to find some offensive punch. Peacock did a good job, but we need to have more guys step up. We missed too many free throws, warned Devin Gibson.
The s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg were led by John Little with 15 points. Dwayne Anderson contributed 11 points and Jason Boone mustered 10 points and seven rebounds. The Fraport Skyliners were led by Zach Peacocok with 18 points. Quantez Robertson had 12 points, nine rebounds, three assists and five steals. The Fraport Skyliners had a weak day at the shooting office shooting 35% from the field and 20% from downtown while the s.Oliver Baskets Wurzburg shot 37% from the field and 26% form downtown. The offense will have to improve if the Fraport Skyliners want to see more wins this season. We werent always taking open shots. We were taking more tough shots. We have to create more for others, warned Quantez Robertson. Wurzburg won the rebounding duel 34-30. Frankfurt did a great job forcing Wurzburg to 20 turnovers and having nine fast break points and not allowing Wurzburg any fast break points. The next game for the Fraport Skyliners in on December 8th in Oldenburg.

The last season Rivera played at Marinos in Venezuela LPB where in 15 games he recorded 10.6ppg, 3.3rpg, 4.0apg and 1.5spg. His team won Puerto Rican BSN Regular Season in 2012. Rivera was also a member of Puerto Rican international program for some years. He played for Puerto Rican Senior National Team between 2004 and 2014 and previously for U21 National Team between 2000 and 2001. Rivera also represented Puerto Rico at the Centrobasket in Nayarit (Mexico) two years ago. His team won Silver and his stats at that event were 6 games: 8.2ppg, 2.8rpg, 3.5apg, FGP: 52.9%, 3PT: 46.7%, FT: 71.4%. Rivera is quite experienced player. He has played in seven different countries on three different continents (Europe, Latin America and of course North America). Rivera has played previously professionally in Dominican Rep., Greece, Israel (Bnei Hasharon), Italy (Napoli Megaride), Puerto Rico (Vaqueros, Caciques, Manati and Indios), Venezuela (Gaiteros) and Mexico (Halcones Rojos). He attended Univ.of Texas at El Paso until 2005 and it is his twelfth (!!!) season as a professional player. Rivera could be described:
Has a great court vision and a first-pass-then-shoot mentality that make him an ideal point guard; knows how to score, however, and can hit a 3 pointer if left open; can become a star player even at NBA level. He is also a fantastic 1-on-1 defender, with great lateral quickness.

Last Saturday Bayreuth won the 5th straight game, establishing its best start since the return to the top of German basketball (2010). The victory against Giessen has been the natural proof of the great job done by Bayreuth's Austrian head coach, Raoul Korner (agency: Court Side ), arrived -from Braunschweig- in the Bavarian town this summer. Since the first time I saw his guys, I've been impressed by their desire to play together and help each other in both halves of the court. Beyond the technical features of the single players, doubtless the main key of the successes has been their ability to take quick decisions on offense and a defensive attitude improved game by game. The ball remains stationary for one or two seconds at most, so the offensive set plays are always characterized by good pace and an efficient flow that involves every player on the floor. Flow, pace, ball movement: when we watch a basketball match, we always hear these three magic words, needful to build a good offense and to create the right spacing between the players; each of them is present in Bayreuth's offense and these simple but fundamental things make all the difference.
I would like to analyze Bayreuth starting to talk about the centers. Why the centers? Because they own two unusual traits for a big-man: good passers and an high basketball IQ. Andreas Seiferth (209-C-89) is in the crucial part of his career and he must prove to be an overall player. I like his attitude on the court because he always tries to do the better thing for the team; on offense he can be dangerous in pick and roll's situations due to his ability to cut quickly after the screen and he has a very good coordination to finish: rarely he commits a traveling violation or a charge foul against the defender that comes to help from the weak side. He can also score with moves in the low post where he possesses good skills and can also use the weak hand, despite being left-handed. He likes receiving the ball statically taking advantage of his size and then he often finishes with a drop-step or a baby-hook shot. This being said, he also has a capable court vision and he's a good passer, so, when the defenders come to a double-team, he's able to overturn the ball and the shooters on weak side profit by this situation. On defense, he does not have slow feet considering his size, so when he must defend on a pick and roll he can do aggressive "shows" on the perimeter, although he's more helpful to contain the opposing penetrations. Problems can start when he finds a powerful opponent with an important weight and a tough body or when he's attacked dynamically - as happened with Ulm's Raymar Morgan - because he does not have a great lateral mobility. He's a good rim protector despite not being an extraordinary athlete and he has a good IQ that allows him to help at the right moment. Finally, he's also a good rebounder, able to guarantee to his team important extra-possessions and careful to box-out his opponent when he must take a defensive rebound.
After Siauliai, Bayreuth is the second European experience for Assem Marei (206-F-92, college: Minn.St.-Mankato). One thing comes to my mind if I had to choose a word to describe him: concreteness. He's a solid player on both sides of the floor and he has a great work ethic because he wants to improve himself in the aspects in which he's lacking. Low post constitutes 70-80 % of his offensive game: he can finish with both hands - with a baby-hook shot usually -, good technique and an important feet speed that makes him unpredictable. Almost as soon as entered on the court, he immediately has an huge impact on the game because of his aggressiveness and he's able to be productive also in few minutes. As well as Seiferth, in my humble opinion he must improve his shot range to give a bigger completeness to his game and to widen his technical luggage. He must brush up his lateral quickness, too: if he's attacked in dynamic situations, he often uses his hands to contain the opponent, so it happens he's in fouls trouble. He certainly prefer to contain when he must defend on a pick and roll, but he's improving in the "show and recover". He runs the court very well, so he can grab a defensive rebound and then takes up the central line of the court to receive a pass from the teammates for a fastbreak. I would close mentioning his great ability to hold his body in hard situations and his capacity to read what happens on the floor: he has an high basketball IQ, so he's a capable passer and also a good rebounder, although he does not have too much athleticism because he has great timing to take the right position under the basket to anticipate his opponent, on defense and on offense, too.
De'Mon Brooks (202-F-92, college: Davidson) and Steve Wachalski (202-F-83) add quality and strenght to Bayreuth's frontcourt, making it truly solid. De'Mon's energy and aggressiveness are one of the main reasons of Bayreuth's good defenses on the pick and roll: he has very quick feet, so he's exceptional to switch and to "stay" with the opposing guards, denying the possibility to attack the rim, he has long arms that allow him to make a lot of deflections and steals and he also carries out right defensive rotations. Good rebounder due to his athleticism. Excellent to do a fast defensive transition, Brooks has a remarkable ability to make close-outs keeping the right balance. On offense he prefers to attack dynamically taking advantage of his acceptable ball handling; till now he's pulling up with an important 45.5 % behind the arc, showing a good ability to knock down threes, but I think he must get more confidence and continuity with his shot and he also must achieve a better shot mechanics. Good moves on low post, but he does not like static situations, so he often drives with the ball to find the right position near the basket. As well his teammates, he's demonstrating the proper concentration, staying focused all the game. Wachalski is a fundamental role player in the economy of Raoul Korner (agency: Court Side )'s team. I simply report two features: he always does the right choose on offense, shooting or attack opposing close-outs, and he is a substantial defender. He does not have athleticism, but he offsets with a great defensive intelligence. He's a spot-up player, so the major part of his points are produced by three-points shots, but he has the rare ability to do the right thing at the right moment: a screen, a rebound, a shot. In Giessen he performed 11 straight points in a crucial part of the match.
Coming to the backcourt, maybe he's a bit undersized, but Joseph Lewis (188-G-92, college: Louisville) is showing all his potential: it is easy to talk about his predisposition to score in different ways, but I've been impressed by his concentration on defense. Off the ball he is always "sticked" on his opponent, while on the ball he always puts a great pressure and he's often able to force the screen with his energy. Even when he fails to perform a lot of points, he finds the way to help his team, defending very hard, as happened in Giessen. His desire to fight and to compete is very remarkable and I love his cleverness to work for his teammates and to wait without forcing shots. Naturally, he has an innate instinct for the offense; sometimes it happens he produces a lot of points without you perceiving it. He's a silent-killer and he has the ability to score quick points, also in topic moments of the game. Extraordinary shooter in catch-and-shoot's situations, great release and tip, Joseph has also good fundamentals: that's why he also like to make a jump-stop followed by a mid-range shot, in particulary after a pick and roll. He does not have an instantaneous first step, so he is more capable to attack close-outs. When I saw him for the first time in this season, I thought Kyan Anderson (180-PG-92, college: TCU, agency: Pensack Sports) would have had a lot of troubles on defense: not too much focused off the ball and not too much strong and active on the ball. But now things have changed: despite not being a monster physically, in the last games Kyan has demonstrated an important defensive attitude off the ball, crossing the screens very well and guarding his opponent. As said about Lewis, also Anderson does not excel in beating his defender from the dribble: he is not known for his explosiveness and he does not like to shoot from the dribble but he's very quick to beat close.outs. He's an efficient shooter in catch-and-shoot's situations and he possesses the quality to knock down important shots; against Jena, for example, he performed the three-point shot to win the game and also in preseason against Trento he decided the match in this way. He has a capable killer-instinct and he has good skills to involve his teammates, despite not being an exceptional passer. But in my own opinion the heart of Bayreuth's offense is Nate Linhart (200-SF-86, college: Akron); he is the most experienced in the ranks of the Bavarian team so he can bring a bit of craftiness to his teammates. He's not a great defender and he does not have an important athleticism to force screens and to beat his defender in 1-on-1 but he's wonderful in how he plays the pick and roll due to his cleverness to find the right angle to pass the ball and to trigger his teammates (either spot-up players or centers); although is left-handed, he uses his weak hand very well and this is essential to find pass lines in every case. When Bayreuth must play an important offense - during an excited phase of the game, for example -, ball comes to Linhart: he's the true director of the offense and he adds quality and phosphorus. This being said, he's an excellent three points shooter - especially from the corner - when he receives the ball with the feet toward the basket and he's a great cutter from the weak side because of his ability to read what is happening on the floor. He's a creator and a weak side's player, too. Finally, I would conclude my analysis with few words about Bastian Doreth (182-PG-89) and Robin Amaize (188-SG-94, agency: Octagon Europe). As said about Wachalski, Doreth is another role player that brings an energic defensive effort to his team; when Korner wants to increase his aggressiveness on the perimeter, Bastian is always prepared to help. Very capable to remain setted front of his opponent, Doreth is also good off the ball due to his concentration; he's not an athlete and he does not have great technique, but he knows how to take responsibilities. Instead, it is not easy to decipher Robin Amaize; when he realizes talented plays, you could have a great impression on him, but then he makes a mistake on the other side taking a bad position on defense. Doubtless he must find the right continuity because he's too much fitful at the moment, but I think he has the possibility to become an important player because he has obvious features: he has explosive legs to beat his defender and when he wants he also has the right defensive attitude, but he must work on his shot.
In short: flow and pace on offense, great organization and right rotations and ability to close the paint on defense. These are the keys to explain Bayreuth's successes; two simple things, simple but difficult to transmit to your team if you have selfish players without defensive abnegation.
