Liga A week recap - by Facundo Iatzky
After the interruption of All star game Liga A resumed with a lot of action. In the top of the standings things are even. La union Formosa remains in first position, but they have one game more played than the rest. Atenas will occupatte this first position when they play the games that they owe.

Quimsa won against Olimpico in the classic and now can go quietly to Matr del Plata to play the liga de las americas final 4 this weekend.
In the bottom of the standings, Quilmes lost two straight games at home and is in a very complicated situation. Obras lost too and things start to get heavier. Gimnasia, Estudiantes and Central Entrerriano breath a little more.

ROUND 14 - Highlights! - by Dr. Nasios Orinos

Etha's victory over Apoel was the highlight of round 14. Etha was ahead of the score most of the time with Apoel making a comeback at the end. Apoel seemed tired and did not have much passion to win the game. From Etha Wesbi had 23-points. From Apoel Heath finished the game with 29-points.

With Dragan Raca on the bench for the 1st time Apollon hoped to clinch the victory over Ael. Ael won the game by 12 (92-80) and advanced to its 10th victory.

Ael hopes to clinch the 1st position on the board.

With 4 games left in the regular season is definite that Ael will not loose another game. The team is in a great condition and there is no team good enough to beat Ael at this moment.

Heath - Apoel = 29 points

Josh Carter (EWE Baskets Oldenburg) Post Game Thoughts To 68 -59 Win Over Alba Berlin - by Miles Schmidt-Scheuber
Josh Carter (201-G/F-88, college: Texas A&M) is a 20 year old 201 cm shooting guard/small forward playing his first season in Germany for the BBL champions EWE Baskets Oldenburg. He is from Dallas, Texas and played four years at Texas A & M. In the fall of 205, he was a 16 year old freshman on the team. N his senior year, he played 34 games averaging 13.8ppg, 4.3rpg, 1.7apg, FGP: 43.3%, 3Pts: 39.9%, FT: 84.7%. He had two duels against 2009 NBA top pick Blake Griffin losing both games against Oklahoma, but having a deadlock with Griffin at 32 points a piece. He reached the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2007 and also played with the USA National team in 2007. Josh spoke to eurobasket after the 68-59 win against Alba Berlin.

Congrats on the 68-59 win against Alba Berlin. Berlin had won 13 of their last 14 games. How important was it for The EWE Baskets Oldenburg to come out in the first game of the second half of the season and make a statement saying, we are the defending champions and we are still on your heals?

I thought this was a huge game for us. We played really well and it was nice to come away with the win

Alba Berlin came out on fire taking a 19-4 lead. What were the main difficulties that the team was having? I noticed that Oldenburg was getting absolutely no easy shots. Most shots were difficult and often forced.

I have no idea what was going on. We have started the last couple of games really bad. We have to find a way to get that fixed so we don't have to always fight to come back

What adjustments did The EWE Baskets do on offense?

No adjustments really We just started playing with more energy and started getting some fast break points as well.

Then as if nothing spectacular had happened, The EWE Baskets went on a 41-12 run and it took Alba Berlin almost five minutes until the first points in the third quarter. Was this some of the best basketball that Oldenburg has played this season considering you were totally dominating the eight time BEKO BBL champion

I thought we performed really well. Our defense was really good during that stretch and we were making shots on the offensive end. I think it was one of our better performances of the year

In the second half, Oldenburg was able to break away and get a comfortable lead in which Alba Berlin would not be able to recover from. What did Predrag Krunic want the team to do better in the second half.

He just wanted us to play with more energy and effort offensively and defensively.

The game witnessed a very strange and not usual instance where Alba Berlin was hit with three technical fouls and Jason Gardner was awarded 8 free throws. Have you ever experienced something like that before in a game and was that the turning point of the game?

No I have never seen anything like that. I dont think it was a turning point, beacuase I think we were already pretty comfortable and had a good lead at that stage of the game. It definitely helped to get those easy points on the boards though to give us more of a lead.

You scored nine points in 20 minutes including a nice stuff off the fast break. In the first half, you made a nice drive to the hoop and finished with a pretty two handed dunk. Do you prefer the flights to the hoop or like to hurt teams with your three pointer?

I like to shoot the 3 but I also like to get to the rim and finish. It has not happened for me to much this year, but its something that I usually do every now and then. So hopefully I will start being able to get more dunks in the second half of this season.

Despite the win, Alba Berlin scored one basket more, outrebounded Oldenburg and only allowed seven assists. Even though these stats are difficult to believe, they happened. How happy was coach Krunic despite these stats after the game?

He was very happy. A win is a win. We know we can get better and play better and thats what we will continue to do.

What was your impression of Alba Berlin truck Cemal Nalger that looked twice as wide as Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje?

I thought he was really good. He is big and really goes after rebounds and fights for position in the post. I thought he played tough

The Oldenburg Bermuda triangle Gardner, Paulding and Foster were strong as usual, but Marko Scekic was the unsung hero again with 11 points and seven rebounds including a nice assist to you. Does he get the credit that he deserves?

Marko Scekic is really good. He does everything really well. passing, shooting, rebounding he does it all. He is definitely a very important piece to our team. I dont think our team really cares about who gets the credit. We just like to have fun playing and win games. Thats all that matters to us.

Thanks Josh for the post game talk.

PBA Quarterfinals: Talk N Text and Purefoods jump to 2-0 - by Eurobasket News
Talk N Text - Ginebra 106-105
Jared Dillinger (191-G/F-84, college: Hawaii) scored on a perfectly executed alley-oop play in the closing seconds, capping a big Talk `N Text comeback from 18 points down in a pulsating 106-105 win over Barangay Ginebra Sunday in Game 2 of their KFC-PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals series at the Araneta Coliseum. Trailing, 104-105, in the final 3.3 seconds, the Tropang Texters came off a timeout looking for an eye-in-the-sky play, which Ranidel de Ocampo made happen with a right-on-target pass to an airborne Dillinger. Jason Castro (173-G-86) scored 19 points to lead six other Texters with double-figure outputs. Harvey Carey (191-F-79, college: Sonoma St.) had 17, Ranidel de Ocampo 16 (plus 13 rebounds), Dillinger 14, Alapag 13, Mac-Mac Cardona 11 and Ali Peek 10. JC Intal (195-C-83) led Ginebra with 23 points, hitting a pair of crucial three-point shots in the final 2:39. But he could only split his free throws in the final 3.3 seconds to make it 105-104, and opened the way for that big winning play by Talk `N Text. - Courtesy of www.GMANews.TV

Rain or Shine - Purefoods 94-95
Purefoods Tender Juicy also came back from 20 points and James Yap (191-F/G-82) hit his first two free throws out of three attempts with less than a second left to come away to pull off a 95-94 escape over Rain or Shine in Game 2 of their own best-of-5 quarterfinal series. Jeff Chan put the Elasto Painters to a 94-93 with a twisting drive over Rafi Reavis with 8.5 seconds left. But Yap, who was way behind the rainbow line, drew a foul from Eddie Laure with 0.6 ticks remaining. Yap hit the first two and intentionally missed the last one as the Giants escaped with the victory and move to a victory away of meeting San Miguel Beer in the best-of-7 semifinal series. James Yap led Puerfoods with 23 points while Roger Rap added 22. Solomon Mercado (183-G-84, college: Biola (CA)) paced Rain or Shine with 26 markers. Gabe Norwood contributed 22 points and 16 rebounds for coach Caloy Garcia. -Courtesy of

Academica switches import players - Kalen Grimes is the new face in town - by Antonio Santos
Ass. Academica de Coimbra has announced, on the day of the deadline to add new players to the roster, that it has released Quin Humphrey (193-G-84, college: Youngstown St.) and signed Kalen Grimes (206-C, agency: Hart Sports Mngm, college: Missouri).

While Ass. Academica de Coimbra is 5th in the league at 5-6 right now, it is only one win ahead of a group of six teams that sit at 4-7. This addition seems like a clear statement the team believes it lacks height. It releases a combo guard and hires a center.

After playing at Missouri in college, Kalen has had international experience in Poland, Ukraine, Uruguay and Switzerland.

Ass. Academica de Coimbra comes of a 2008/2009 season where it performed extremely well, giving eventual champions Sport Lisboa Benfica hell, in a grinding 5 game series in which it eventually succumbed 2-3. This raised expectations for this season and Humphrey might have been more of a victim of such expectations than anything else.

Pazi outsmarted holders JKT to claim a hard-earned 78-61 victory in the Regional Basketball League match played yesterday at the National Indoor Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

JKT's miseries set in at the third quarter in which Pazi managed to post 20 against 15 points converted by JKT.

quarter while restricting JKT to a ten-point gain.

Celtics may want Raja Bell - by David Edole
Golden State Warriors guard Raja Bell (196-F/G-76, agency: Interperformances, college: Florida Intern.) (notes) was averaging 11.8 points per game and shooting 44 percent from 3-point range before having wrist surgery. He becomes a free agent this summer so the Warriors might be willing to send him packing.

Rumor has it the Boston Celtics are looking for somebody who can shoot from the outside, according to the Boston Globe. Rajon Rondo (notes) still isn't a sure shot from out there and the Los Angeles Lakers were actually letting him take those shots on Sunday without challenging him.

One wonders if the Warriors and Celtics could figure out a way to get the veteran Bell to Boston for the stretch run.

Riders Record Double Triumph - by Andy Webb
Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders were the success story of this weekend, as they put their recent shaky form behind them to record an 82-63 home win against Essex Pirates, followed by a tense 87-92 victory over Guildford Heat yesterday at Guildford Spectrum. In the Pirates game, it was Jason Johnson (201-F/C, agency: BrezoPro, college: S.Carolina St.) who was on form with 17 points, 11 boards, 4 blocks and 11/12 free throw shooting to lead his side to victory. He carried this into the Heat game, as he had 15 points and 9 rebounds, but Bradd Wierzbicki (191-G, college: Queens (NY)) was the star of the show, as he had 36 points personal. For the Heat, Kenny Langhorne led the way with 23 points, Julius Joseph had 17, and Mike Martin had 14.

Before all the excitement of the weekend, Newcastle Eagles comfortably dealt with Airwaves Plymouth Raiders on Thursday night, with a 16 point win in the North East, whilst Friday saw Everton Tigers, who were without Head Coach Tony Garbelotto due to his one game ban, defeated by Marshall MK Lions 91-107. Despite 22 points from Trey Moore and James Jones of the Tigers, a 29 point haul from the Lions Frank Holmes meant that despite a 12-3 Everton burst late in the game, Milton Keynes were able to seal the victory from the foul line.

Paul James Worcester Wolves side were led by American duo Rod Middleton and Daniel Gilbert, who had 27 and 13 points respectively, as they beat Glasgow Rocks 90-75 on Saturday evening. Another stand-out for the new-look Worcester side was Harry Disy, who had 26 points to his name.

Worthing Thunder fell 100-105 to Sheffield Sharks at home on the same night, in a game that was neck and neck throughout. The game looked like it had Sharks written all over it, as the visitors started well, taking a 32-21 lead into the second quarter, which they then converted into a 55-45 advantage at half time, but Worthings guards bought them back into the game, at 74-76 heading into the final quarter, where a Sherrad Prezzie-Blue three pointer took them ahead briefly at 85-84. Sheffield then came storming back with five points from Mike Tuck in an 8-2 run. Despite Reggie Brattons late three pointer putting Thunder back within touching distance, Perry Lawson nailed two free throws to seal the win.

Sundays only other encounter besides the Heat-Riders match, was a 99-57 Cheshire Jets defeat of London Leopards in the BBL Trophy First Round.

Flyers win National Cup Finals - by Eurobasket News
Men's National Cup Final

Manchester Magic 61 (14, 29, 46, 57)
Bristol Academy Flyers 63 (16, 29, 45, 57)

Most Valuable Player Davis Bowne (203-C-84, college: Appalachian St.), Bristol Academy Flyers
12 points, 13 rebounds

With an ending that rivals any basketball game from this season, the Bristol Academy Flyers won their first major trophy after defeating the Manchester Magic 63-61 in overtime.

In a highly defensive battle that saw a lot of shots taken and few drop, the Flyers and Magic gave the Sheffield crowd something to shout about as time ticked away in the fourth quarter.

With the score locked at 55, Stefan Gill's floater gave the Magic a two point lead with just over a minute remaining. A series of misses at both ends followed until, with two seconds left, Bristol's Doug McLaughlin-Williams pulled up for a three but was fouled by the Magic's Yann Fasbender. The result was three free throws for McLaughlin-Williams, with all pressure on the Bristol forward.

The travelling Bristol faithful were left with their hearts in their throats as the American missed his first, but he regained composure to sink the last two leaving the game tied at 57.

Coach Jeff Jones called timeout with just enough time to run an inbounds play from the halfway mark. An almost perfectly executed lob pass was sent to Gill, but he rimmed out forcing the extra period.

Youngster Josh Houghton made up for a couple of missed threes in the final minute of the fourth as he drove with the left hand to open the overtime scoring. Bowne replied nearly two minutes later to level, but Gill's 28th point at the minute and a half mark gave the Magic a 61-59 lead.

Bristol's Anthony Berry (200-C-78) was sent to the line by Lee Goldsbrough, where he converted one of two, but the Flyers regained possession and Berry's hook in the paint gave them the 62-61 lead. Houghton missed from long range at the other end leaving the Magic forced to foul Jack Stannard, whose one of two free throws was enough to secure the win.

Bristol Academy Flyers coach Andreas Kapoulas was a delighted man:

'Winning the National Cup is a major milestone in our club's history,' he said. 'It is such a great achievement and a huge recognition for our players, supporters, coaches and Bristol basketball in general. I am so proud of our players' commitment, work ethic and determination. They really deserve this recognition.'

'The win was a product of our hard work and demonstrated the depth and toughness our team possesses. I am so happy to be part of this group. The Cup means a lot to the Flyers and Bristol basketball. We now hope to continue our success in the league campaign.

'I would like to thank our sponsors Big Tall Order, DTM LTD, Yaskin Sports and Initially Yours for the support they have given us. Most importantly, though, I would like to thank Filton College and the Principal Kevin Hamblin who have been vital to our success and the rise to the top of English Basketball.'

Despite Bowne's MVP performance, Gill was the game's high scorer with 28 points and an impressive 11 rebounds from the 5'8' Magic guard, whose leaping ability was shown with his work on the glass.

BBL Team of the Week #18 - by Andy Webb
Cheshire Jets new recruit, Jerrah Young (201-F-85, agency: Liman Sports, college: Toledo), made his first Team of the Week appearance, thanks to a confident performance against London Leopards in the BBL Trophy First Round. The American had 25 points and 14 rebounds, as well as 3 assists, 4 blocked shots and 2 steals as his side triumphed 99-57 over the EBL Division one team.

Frank Holmes joins him at the Forward position, with a 29 point haul in Marshall MK Lions win over Everton Tigers. He posted other numbers of 12/19 shooting from the field, 5/7 from the foul line, as well as grabbing 8 rebounds, and 2 blocks in his time on court, 33:05 minutes.

At Centre, is Team GB member Tafari Tap Toney, who earned his place in Sheffield Sharks convincing 107-84 victory over Airwaves Plymouth Raiders on Friday evening. His 27 points came off 11/15 field goal shooting, he scored 5 out of 8 of his free throws, blocked 4 shots, and seized 11 boards.

At the point and shooting guard spots are Ryan Patton and Bradd Wierzbicki (191-G, college: Queens (NY)). Patton, who is in his first season as a Sheffield Shark having previously played at Worthing Thunder and Sheffield Arrows, has appeared regularly in the Team of the Week this season, and in the 100-105 win over his former club Worthing yesterday, the Youngstown State graduate had 26 points, knocking down five of his eight three point attempts and 7/8 from the free throw line.

Wierzbicki is the star of the show this week though, thanks to his 36 point haul as Jelson Homes DMU Leicester Riders beat Guildford Heat yesterday, with a scoreline of 92-87. The American, who has a Polish passport, shot 75% from behind the arc, and an outstanding 15/15 from the free throw line, as he returned to sparkling form.

Bratton and Lyons Come Up Trumps - by Andy Webb
Worthing Thunder guard Reggie Bratton (193-G/F, college: Lenoir-Rhyne) has scooped the Molten BBL Player of the Month Award for January, whilst Sheffield Sharks player-coach Atiba Lyons is the Molten BBL Coach of the Month, for the second time this season.

Bratton, who signed straight out of college to the Thunder this year, Bratton has taken the BBL by storm, having just overtaken last months Molten BBL Player of the Month, Mike Cook, in scoring. He currently averages 26.5 points per game, and over the month of January, averaged 24.33 points per outing, in 34 minutes per game for Dave Titmuss side.

Titmuss said the following on this accolade being awarded to one of his star players: I am delighted for him; he has clearly established himself in this league. For somebody coming from a Division Two school into the professional game, it shows the commitment and professionalism that he has, which is no doubt a big part of why he has won this award. The veteran coach also emphasised the influence that the 64 shooting guard has on the boards: Although it is his scoring that gets him noticed, I think that his rebounding has been underestimated he had eleven rebounds against Sheffield on Saturday for example he added.

Atiba Lyons has continued to enjoy his second season in the coaching game, as player-coach to the Sharks, and he coached them to a 5-1 record over the month of January, the highlight being a BBL Cup crown, thanks to an 89-86 victory over Cheshire Jets. Lyons said: I am pleased to receive this award, and its a great reflection on the teams consistency and continuing positive attitude. Its important that we keep playing together in order to do well.
