ProB Round 14: Dragons Rhoendorf edges Licher Baeren by one point - Jan 13, 2013


POSTED BY:

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with extra overtimes, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Fifth-ranked Licher Baeren (7-7) made lots of trouble for first ranked Dragons Rhoendorf (13-1) on Sunday. The visitors from Rhoendorf managed to secure only one-point victory 67-66. However their fans expected much easier game. The guests trailed by 11 points after first quarter, but they rallied back and won the game by 1 point. The best player for the winners was Florian Koch (197-92) who scored 23 points and 9 rebounds. American Geddes Robinson (195-87, college: Utah Valley, agency: SDJ Sports) chipped in 17 points and 5 assists. Dragons Rhoendorf's coach Boris Kaminski used a ten-player rotation in such tough game. American forward Jason Swanson (201-86, college: W.Alabama) produced a double-double by scoring 15 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists for the hosts. Dragons Rhoendorf maintains first position in Group South with 13-1 record. Licher Baeren lost third consecutive game. They dropped to the sixth place with seven games lost. They share the position with Bayer Giants and Fraport SKY II. Dragons Rhoendorf are looking forward to face league's second-placed Weissenhorn Youngstars at home in the next round and it will be for sure the game of the week. Licher Baeren will play against Fraport Skyliners II (#5) in Frankfurt and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a road loss of second ranked Herten Lions (10-4) against fifth ranked Oldenburg (7-7) on Saturday night. Visiting Herten Lions were defeated by Oldenburg in a tough game in Oldenburg 92-96. It ended at the same time the five-game winning streak of Herten Lions. Naturalized American center Chris Heinrich (208-77, college: St.Louis) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 29 points and 11 rebounds. Michael Taylor contributed with 23 points and 4 assists for the winners. Oldenburg's coach Mladen Drijencic allowed to play the deep bench players in such tough game. American forward Will Taylor (200-89, college: Cal Poly - SLO) replied with a double-double by scoring 33 points (!!!) and 13 rebounds for Herten Lions. Oldenburg moved-up to fourth place in Group North, which they share with Recklinghausen. Herten Lions at the other side dropped to the third position with four games lost. Oldenburg will play against BSW Sixers (#8) in Sandersdorf in the next round. Herten Lions will play at home against Spot Up Medien Baskets (#6) in Braunschweig and hope to get back on the winning track.
Very important is a road loss of third ranked TV 1862 Langen (8-6) against seventh ranked Bayer Giants (7-7) on Saturday night. Visiting TV 1862 Langen was crushed by Bayer Giants in Leverkusen 91-60. Jack Eggleston had a double-double by scoring 13 points, 13 rebounds and 5 assists to lead the charge for the winners. Martinis Woody responded with 19 points and 9 rebounds. The winner was already known earlier in the game, so both coaches allowed to play the bench players saving starting five for next games. Bayer Giants moved-up to fifth place in Group South, which they share with Licher Baeren and Fraport SKY II. Loser TV 1862 Langen dropped to the fourth position with six games lost. Bayer Giants will meet ifm Baskets Konstanz (#11) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. TV 1862 Langen will play against Noerdlingen (#3) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Leader SG Schwelmer Baskets delivered the thirteenth victory. This time they beat 10th ranked Herzoege Wolfenbuettel (4-10) 79-74. Julius Coles notched 25 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists (was perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line) to lead the effort. SG Schwelmer Baskets (13-1) have an impressive eight-game winning streak. They maintain first position in Group North. Herzoege Wolfenbuettel lost fifth consecutive game. They dropped to the eleventh place with ten games lost. SG Schwelmer Baskets' next round opponent will be BSV Wulfen (#10) on the road and are hoping to win another game. Herzoege Wolfenbuettel will play against Recklinghausen.
Eleventh ranked BSV Wulfen won an overtime thriller against higher ranked Spot Up Medien Baskets by one point 81-80 on Saturday night. The game took place in Braunschweig. But the guests from Wulfen were better at the end. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Spot Up Medien Baskets. The best player for the winners was Anthony Young who had a double-double by scoring 25 points and 13 rebounds (was perfect 9-for-9 from the free throw line !!!). BSV Wulfen (5-9) moved-up to ninth place in Group North, which they share with Hannover. Loser Spot Up Medien Baskets dropped to the sixth position with eight games lost. BSV Wulfen will face league's leader SG Schwelmer Baskets at home in the next round and they do not belong to the favorites in that game.
