POSTED BY:

The Regular Season in ProB is slowly approaching the end. But there may be still some important changes in the final standings in the last 4 rounds. Very exciting round. It does not happen too often that three games need overtime in just one round. There were many interesting games last round. The round ended with defeat of the leader, favorites losing the games and games ending by tiny margin.

Top ranked SG Schwelmer Baskets (16-2) recorded its second loss on the court of fifth ranked Recklinghausen on Saturday night. Visitors were edged by Recklinghausen 78-76. It ended at the same time the 11-game winning streak of SG Schwelmer Baskets. The hosts trailed by 7 points after three quarters before their 23-14 charge, which allowed them to win the game. Recklinghausen made 18-of-20 free shots (90.0 percent) during the game. The game was dominated by American players. The best player for the winners was guard Patrick Carney (185-85, college: Chapman) who scored 26 points (went 10 for 10 at the free throw line !!!). Forward Robert Franklin (195-81, college: N.Mexico Highlands) chipped in 11 points, 11 rebounds and 5 assists. At the other side the best for losing team was Julius Coles (193-89, college: Canisius) who recorded 15 points and 6 rebounds. Both coaches used bench players in such tough game. Newly promoted Recklinghausen maintains fifth position in Group North with 9-9 record. SG Schwelmer Baskets at the other side still keep top place with two games lost. Recklinghausen are looking forward to face league's second-placed Herten Lions on the road in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. SG Schwelmer Baskets will play against SC Rist Wedel and it may be a tough game between close rivals.
Very important is a home loss of second ranked SC Rist Wedel (12-6) against eleventh ranked Spot Up Medien Baskets (7-11) on Saturday night. Host SC Rist Wedel was defeated by Spot Up Medien Baskets in Wedel 78-62. It was a good game for American point guard Steven Bennett (173-88, college: Chaminade) who led his team to a victory with 28 points and 5 rebounds. Howard Sant-Roos contributed with 20 points and 8 rebounds (went 8 for 8 at the free throw line) for the winners. Fabian Boeke (208-86, college: Washington St.) replied with 16 points, 6 rebounds and 4 blocks for SC Rist Wedel. Both coaches tested many bench players which allowed the starters a little rest for the next games. Spot Up Medien Baskets moved-up to eighth place in Group North, which they share with 3 other teams. SC Rist Wedel lost third consecutive game. They keep the second position with six games lost. They share it with Herten Lions. Spot Up Medien Baskets will play against higher ranked Hannover Tigers (#7) in Hannover in the next round and it may be quite challenging game. SC Rist Wedel will play on the road against the league's leader SG Schwelmer Baskets (#1) where they are definitely not considered as a favorite in this game either.
An exciting game between Top Four teams was played in Leverkusen. Second ranked Weissenhorn Youngstars faced 3rd ranked Bayer Giants. Guests from Weissenhorn (12-6) defeated host Bayer Giants (10-8) 85-76. It ended at the same time the four-game winning streak of Bayer Giants. Till-Joscha Joenke had a double-double by scoring 25 points, 10 rebounds and 7 assists to lead the charge for the winners. The best for the losing side was Adonte Parker with a double-double by scoring 20 points, 5 rebounds and 14 assists. Weissenhorn Youngstars have a solid three-game winning streak. They maintain second position in Group South with 12-6 record having four points less than leader Dragons. Loser Bayer Giants dropped to the fourth place with eight games lost. They share the position with 3 other teams. Weissenhorn Youngstars will meet at home Noerdlingen (#3) in the next round, which may be the game of the day. Bayer Giants will play against Dresden and hope to secure a win.
Leader Dragons Rhoendorf delivered the sixteenth victory. This time they beat 5th ranked TV 1862 Langen (10-8) 64-52. The game was also dominated by American players. Alejo Rodriguez notched 19 points and 9 rebounds (on 8-of-9 shooting from the field) to lead the effort. Both coaches allowed to play bench players saving starting five for next games. Dragons Rhoendorf maintains first position in Group South with 16-2 record. TV 1862 Langen at the other side dropped to the fourth place with eight games lost. Dragons Rhoendorf's next round opponent will be Hanau (#9) at home and are hoping to win another game. TV 1862 Langen will play against ifm Baskets Konstanz (#11).
Important game to mention about took place in Sandersdorf. Tenth ranked BSW Sixers (8-10) saved a 2-point victory at home edging higher ranked Dorsten (7-11) 79-77 on Saturday evening.
