Dennis
Schroeder
One thing that is always very interesting and exciting to observe is how a very young German player develops over the years after showing enormous potential at a very young age. In the last years there have been numerous talented players that have gone a healthy route in their development. Who could forget the daring comparison of Stephan Baeck of Tibor Pleiss to Dirk Nowitzki many years ago. Since then the 215cm lanky giant has gone an interesting direction having started with Rhein Energy Cologne where he already played ULEB Cup with 18 years of age. He then went to Bamberg where he won 6 titles, was drafted by the New Jersey Nets and now plays for Caja Laboral Vitoria (Spain-ACB) battling his way to 15 minutes playing time. Another promising German is Robin Benzing who first got some publicity playing for TV Langen and was able to practice with the Frankfurt Skyliners. Instead of playing for Frankfurt, he opted to go to ratiopharm Ulm where he continued to develop under Mike Taylor and was the top german scorer in the 2010-2011 season. Before even playing a single Beko BBL game, he made big strides at the 2009 European championships playing 6 games: 5.5ppg, 1.7rpg, FGP: 53.3%, 3PT: 33.3%, FT: 91.7%. He moved to German tradional team FC Bayern Munich where last season, he seemed a bit lost in a huge rotation, but this season since the arrival of Svetislav Pesic has been reborn and playing superb basketball being a main factor in both wins against Frankfurt. This season a player that has made the biggest strides so far is 19 year old Dennis Schroeder (181-PG-93) of the New Yorker Phantoms Braunschweig. Already last season, one could see the unending potential that was stuck in the 181cm point guard. This season he has leaped as it seems over the Swiss alps in his development and now instead of being a young talented bench player has become one of the most reliable players and is currently their leading scorer and is the best point guard behind German national players Per Guenter, Heiko Schaffartzik and Anton Gavel. His rise is simply amazing as he quickly replaced the experienced Miah Davis in the starting rotation. He had some strong games at the start with 16 points against TBB Trier and BBC Bayreuth, but since registering eight points in a 80-85 loss against Tuebingen on November 17th, he has scored in double figures in 10 of 11 games.In this span, he has averaged 15ppg and nearly 4,0apg. He recently scored 20 points in 29 minutes against the Brose Baskets Bamberg while shooting 7/10 from the field. He is making very wise decisions on the court while playing hard defense. When you see his play, he looks like an NCAA top kid ready to fly to the NBA. Schroeder is getting playing time and getting important experience. As a result of his good play, NBA scouts are looking at him. The question is how well his social competence is in his development as a player. Frank Menz helped to discipline him and how to behave on and off the court. The club has much confidence in him. He plays very boldly and could be a factor for the German national team soon. He needs to keep defense as important as offense, but he is developing in a good way, stressed basketball expert Steven Clauss. Schroeder who started many games this season as was top scorer in many as well came from the bench for the second straight game against the Fraport Skyliners, but put his stamp on the game in the second quarter scoring 13 points in six minutes turning a close game into a Sunday stroll in downtown Braunschweig leading the Phantoms to a 73-66 win as well as getting any more NBA scout doubters 100% on his side as scouts from the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers were present. After the game a defeated Quantez Robertson gave an emotionless comment about the 19 year German wunderkind. Schroeder was a huge spark off the bench. His confidence and good shooting were impressive and they were able to keep the lead and win, stressed Quantez Robertson. It seems also that no young German player in the Beko BBL has developed as quickly as he has in the last three months. I think that Dennis was already playing like this when I came at the start of the season. He does great things in practice and it shows in games. He is a leader at his position and always so competitive, commented 2012 Olypmic competitor Eric Boateng. Schroeder hurt us today the same way he did in the game when I was with Giessen. He attacked the high pick and role and has a real advantage against the big man. He reads the defense so well, stays low and knows how to draw contact. He has so much confidence when taking shots and his penetration opens it up, expressed Ryan Brooks. Even young German Johannes Voigtmann of the Fraport Skyliners was in awe of his talent. Schroeder has been top scorer in many games and just leads the team and his coolness on the court is amazing and when he drives to the hoop, he is always aggressive. He is solid on defense and with his long arms makes it very hard for guards, added Johannes Voigtman.

The Fraport Skyliners came into the game desperate for a win as they were riding on a four game losing streak and were in 17th place of the standings. The only good news was that basketball history was on their side as they had won the last seven games in Braunschweig and in the last years had won in so many crazy ways like getting a come from behind win in 2010, Pascal Roller winning the game at the end with a jumper, Dashaun Wood winning the game in the last minute and last season getting a massive 26 point 13 rebound performance form ex NBA player Jermareo Davidson. The Fraport Skyliners entered the game knowing it was a must win, but like so often this season were unable to give a 40 minute performance in that they played well in some phases, but at the end when they cut the Braunschweig lead to five points were unable to make big plays when they w ere needed. We didnt come out with the energy that we needed and that has happened the last three games. We were fighting to come back, but we were in a hole fast. Then when we got back into the game, our execution wasnt good, too much one on one and guys were standing around. We need an all around better flow. Our defense wasnt on the same page in the first half. They did what they wanted to, hitting open shots and in your face shots. In the second quarter, we were more aggressive and forced them to scramble to take quick shots, stressed ex LTi Giessen 46er Ryann Brooks. The New Yorker Phantoms were coming off a big 84-81 win at home against TBB Trier where Jermaine Anderson nailed a buzzer beater and their self confidence was high, but reality was that they were in 16th place and also needed a win against Frankfurt to distance themselves even more in the standings. Braunschweig hit very well all night long and were consistent enough on defense to keep the Fraport Skyliners at bay when they needed to. Defense helped us get this win. We stuck together, stayed aggressive and executed. Every player contributed to the win. Jermaine Anderson kept us organized, Dennis Schoeder was big off the bench and Harding Nana hit big shots, commented Eric Boateng.

A big problem this season for the Fraport Skyliners has been not having the needed energy out of the start block to match the intensity of their opponent, but in Braunschweig they didnt let the Phantoms break out on a big lead, but kept the game close in the first 10 minutes. Boateng got Braunschweig on the scoreboard first with a lay in after getting a perfect lob pass from Immanuel Mcelroy. The Fraport Skyliners scored on their next two possessions as the ex Giessen connection of Zach Peacock and Ryan Brooks connected. Frankfurt held the tight lead as 30 year old Dawan Robinson did what he does best using his powerful body and scoring with a runner in the lane. Peacock then scored inside, but before Frankfurt could react, ex Bamberg guard Jermaine Anderson dropped a three pointer as the score was 8-8. Now both teams traded runs starting with a Sklyiner -0 run as Laquan Prowell tested his 50% three point shooting nailing from downtown and Super Tez going on the fast break and finding the trailer Peacock for a slam dunk.
