POSTED BY:

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader and favorites losing the games.

Top ranked SC Rasta Vechta (15-5) recorded its fifth loss at the home court on Saturday night. Hosts were edged by tenth ranked NBC (9-11) 85-84. It ended at the same time the ten-game winning streak of SC Rasta Vechta. The guests trailed by 3 points after three quarters before their 25-21 charge, which allowed them to win the game. The best player for the winners was American guard Ahmad Smith (194-84, college: St.Bonaventure) who had a double-double by scoring 19 points, 11 rebounds and 4 assists. Naturalized Russian forward Nikita Khartchenkov (200-87) chipped in 22 points. The former international center Dirk Madrich (211-83, agency: Court Side) produced 20 points and 7 rebounds for the hosts. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. NBC moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Newly promoted SC Rasta Vechta still keeps top position with five games lost. They share it with Goettingen. NBC is looking forward to face Crailsheim Merlins (#15) at home in the next round and are hoping to win another game. SC Rasta Vechta will play against BV Chemnitz 99 (#6) and is hoping to win this game.
Important game to mention about took place in Allmendingen. Seventh ranked Ehingen/Urspringschule (11-9) saved a 2-point victory at home edging 8th ranked MLP Academics Heidelberg (9-11) 73-71 on Sunday evening. The game was dominated by American players. Forward Andre Calvin (196-85, college: Drake) orchestrated the victory with a double-double by scoring 18 points and 10 rebounds. Garrett Williamson contributed with 11 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists for the winners. Forward Devin White (203-88, college: SUNO) replied with 17 points and 6 rebounds for MLP Academics Heidelberg. MLP Academics Heidelberg's coach rotated ten players in this game, but that didn't help. Ehingen/Urspringschule moved-up to sixth place, which they share with Chemnitz. MLP Academics Heidelberg at the other side keeps the eighth position with 11 games lost. They share it with 3 other teams. Ehingen/Urspringschule will play against league's second-placed BG Goettingen on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. MLP Academics Heidelberg will play against Duesseldorf Baskets (#3) and hopes to get back on the winning track.
Fourteenth-ranked Oettinger Rockets Gotha (7-13) made lots of trouble for third ranked Duesseldorf Baskets (14-6) on Sunday. Duesseldorf Baskets managed to secure only two-point victory 77-75. However their fans expected much easier game. Worth to mention a great performance of Adam Waleskowski who helped to win the game recording a double-double by scoring 17 points and 11 rebounds. Chase Griffin responded with 22 points and 5 rebounds. Both coaches tested many bench players in such tough game. Duesseldorf Baskets have a solid four-game winning streak. They maintain third position with 14-6 record behind leader Vechta. Newly promoted Oettinger Rockets Gotha keeps the fourteenth place with 13 games lost. They share the position with Crailsheim. Duesseldorf Baskets will meet MLP Academics Heidelberg (#8) on the road in the next round where they are favorite. Oettinger Rockets Gotha will play against Kirchheim Knights (#12) and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
We should mention about the upset which took place in Jena, where higher ranked Science City Jena (9-11) lost at home to thirteenth ranked Finke Baskets (8-12) 73-83. The winners were led by Guy Aud who scored that evening 17 points and 6 assists. Finke Baskets moved-up to twelfth place, which they share with Kirchheim. Science City Jena at the other side dropped to the eighth position with 11 games lost. Finke Baskets' next round opponent will be higher ranked ETB Wohnbau (#11) in Essen and it may be quite challenging game.
An interesting game took place in Essen, where higher ranked BV Chemnitz 99 (11-9) lost to eleventh ranked ETB Wohnbau (9-11) in a road game 81-93 on Saturday. The best player for the winners was Joey Henley who had a double-double by scoring 19 points and 13 rebounds (on 7-of-9 shooting from the field). ETB Wohnbau moved-up to eighth place, which they share with 3 other teams. Loser BV Chemnitz 99 keeps the sixth position with nine games lost. ETB Wohnbau will face Finke Baskets (#13) in Paderborn in the next round where they are favorite.

Rest of the games of round 20 were quite predictable and ended without any surprises. Here they are:
Karlsruhe defeated Crailsheim in a road game 88-72. Kirchheim smashed Cuxhaven at home 107-77. Goettingen won against Leipzig on the opponent's court 92-80.
